Valve Disease: When is the right time to intervene?
From [email protected]
Steven Nissen, MD, Chairman of the Robert and Suzanne Tomsich Department of Cardiovascular Medicine at Cleveland Clinic sits down with Marc Gillinov, MD, Chairman of the Department of Thoracic and Cardiovascular Surgery and Brian Griffin, MD, Section Head Cardiovascular Imaging to discuss timing of heart surgery, one valve at a time – the differences between aortic and mitral valves and regurgitation and stenosis. Changes in diagnostic imaging techniques, surgical and interventional options, as well as looking at outcomes data have changed the way we look at these patients and timing of intervention.
