In case you missed it… I just posted a new article and video about the recent FDA approval of the Epic Plus tissue heart valve replacement that does not require anti-coagulant therapy. In the post, Dr. Kenith Fang, Chief of Cardiothoracic Surgery at Banner University Medical Center Phoenix, answers several important questions about the unique technologies in the Epic Plus that are designed to help patients manage heart valve disease throughout their lifetime.
So you know, the original Epic valve first came out in 2008. So far, that valve has been implanted in over 250,000 patients around the world.
The new Epic “Plus” valve offers patients several new innovations for valve-in-valve procedures and enhanced durability that you can learn about at this link.
