Our procedure provides patients with a less-invasive alternative to the rigors of traditional open-chest
surgery performed on a stopped heart."
For many such patients, a repeat open-chest
cardiac surgery for redo surgical aortic valve replacement would be associated with a high rate of predicted complications, a prolonged hospital stay, and a slow recovery.
Right, it's time to dust off the medallion, the open-chest

Arrhythmias, or erratic heartbeats, can also be treated via catheter rather than open-chest

Trimetazidine at a dose of 1 mg/kg completely abolished CFRs caused by accumulating thrombus in the circumflex coronary artery in 4 of 8 open-chest
The surgery would require the same procedures involved in open-chest

The Cardima Surgical Ablation System can reportedly be used in open-chest
