Marc Would Recommend Memorial in a Heartbeat
Marc came to Memorial Cardiac and Vascular Institute with adult congenital heart disease. While open heart surgery was an option, Marc was concerned about his job.
As a result, the Memorial team, together with Joe DiMaggio Children’s Hospital, performed the first Harmony™ transcatheter valve placement in South Florida history.
The valve is inserted into the heart via a tube fed through a vein in the groin. Once in place it expands to a shape and size that fits the patient’s heart. This innovative solution avoids open heart surgery.
Marc went home the day after the procedure.
“It speaks to our innovation as a center of excellence for adult congenital heart disease care,” said Dr. Roth.
“The nurses, the doctors are great,” said Marc, “I’d recommend them in a heartbeat.”
