St. Mark's Hospital - February 12, 2017

On Monday, December 12, the first cases of Transcatheter Mitral Value Repair (TMVR) using the MitraClip® technology were performed at St. Mark’s Hospital by Dr. Vamsee M. Yaganti, medical director of our structural heart program, and Dr. J. Kent Thorne, cardiovascular surgeon, with imaging by Dr. Sally D. Sharp. Since that date, two more cases have been performed, all with excellent results attributed to effective communication in the procedure room, imaging quality, staff training and preparedness and the acumen of the implanting team.
