What is Structural Heart Disease?
Structural heart disease includes degeneration of the valves in the heart, acquired defects after surgical valve replacement such as paravalvular leak and defects we are born with such as patent foramen ovale (PFO) and atrial septal defects (ASD). Our team at MCI is well equipped to guide you through diagnosis and treatment of these disease states, whether through surgery or state-of-the-art, minimally invasive approaches.
Diagnosis and Treatment
The Structural Heart Program at MCI provides minimally-invasive procedures to treat life-threatening valve disorders and structural heart defects. Through collaboration between interventional cardiologists and cardiovascular surgeons, MCI strives to pioneer innovative heart solutions and provide the best possible outcomes for our patients with structural heart diseases and conditions.
