Mending Broken Hearts: Percutaneous Aortic Valve Replacement

In the premier episode of Breakthrough Medicine, we watch as UHealth physicians work to save the life of a man suffering with aortic stenosis using an experimental treatment performed as part of a clinical trial available in Florida only at University of Miami Hospital.

Aortic stenosis, a life-threatening condition, is an abnormal narrowing of the aortic valve that restricts blood flow from the heart to the organs and tissue. The percutaneous aortic valve replacement clinical trial – available in Florida only at University of Miami Hospital – uses experimental procedure to treat aortic stenosis in patients who are not eligible for open-heart surgery.
