Not all patients with aortic valve disease need a mechanical or biological valve replacement. Let me repeat that… Not all patients with aortic stenosis or aortic regurgitation need a mechanical or biological valve replacement.
Thanks to advanced surgical techniques, known as aortic valve reconstruction, patients may greatly benefit from keeping their aortic valve tissue. To learn more about patient advantages from aortic valve reconstruction procedures, we just interviewed Dr. Chris Malaisrie, a leading aortic valve surgeon at Northwestern Medicine.
Many thanks to Dr. Malaisrie for sharing these important insights with our patient community! In addition, I would like to thank the entire Northwestern Medicine team for helping so many patients from HeartValveSurgery.com with successful outcomes over the years!
