BCH Lecture: Advanced treatment for aortic valve disease 5/16/23

  • Category: Cardiology

Advances in heart valve design, performance and durability are critical to the more than five million Americans diagnosed with heart valve disease each year. Those with mild heart valve disease often live long, full lives without the need for intervention. In more severe cases that may compromise heart function, a valve replacement may be necessary.

During a free online Boulder Community Health (BCH) health lecture, cardiothoracic surgeon Daniel P. O’Hair, MD, described results of his groundbreaking study on the longevity of heart valves, recently published in the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA).
