In honor of Heart Month, Dr. Yazdani gave a free online presentation on Aortic Valve Disease for all Carient Heart & Vascular patients and family members. The presentation, which detailed the condition and current diagnostic and treatment protocols, then became an open forum for questions.
Aortic Valve Disease is the result of degenerative aortic stenosis (risk factors including HTN, high cholesterol, diabetes, and genetic predisposition) or Bicuspid Aortic Valve (due to a congenital abnormality of the valve).
New treatments, including Transcatheter Aortic Valve Replacement, are proving effective with good outcomes.
