The Patient Reality Of Heart Valve Re-Operations with Dr. Anyanwu

In this video, Dr. Anelechi Anyanwu, cardiac surgeon at Mount Sinai Medical Center, addresses the patient realities of heart valve re-operations. As you will learn, heart valve re-operations are more complicated than first-time operations. There are several potential issues that need to be managed by the surgeon and the medical team including scar tissue and stroke risks. For these reasons, heart valve re-operations are considered complex and higher-risk than isolated (first-time) heart valve procedures. (Video posted on February 7, 2013)
