Coronary CT angiography images of a coronary artery depicting the perivascular fat attenuation index (FAI) before and after biologic therapy at one-year follow-up. Patients had excellent response to biologic therapy, showing clear reductions in the inflammation in plaques that cause heart attacks and stokes.

Study Shows Inducing a Heart Attack Helps Valve Patients. This image shows a left-ventricular outflow tract (LVOT) obstructed by an Edwards Sapien TAVR valve used for a valve-in-valve procedure. The arrow points to the small, crescent shaped dark area of the neo-LVOT, which did not allow enough blood to flow from the left ventricle into the aorta and the rest of the body. To prevent this issue, the procedure used by Henry Ford ablates some of the tissue in the septum to allow for a larger LVOT area.

This image shows a left-ventricular outflow tract (LVOT) obstructed by an Edwards Sapien TAVR valve used for a valve-in-valve procedure. The arrow points to the small, crescent shaped dark area of the neo-LVOT, which did not allow enough blood to flow from the left ventricle into the aorta and the rest of the body. To prevent this issue, the procedure used by Henry Ford ablates (kills) some of the tissue in the cardiac septum to allow these valves to fit better and allow for an enlarged neo-LVOT for patients who otherwise could not receive this therapy.
