Henry Ford Hospital

This page highlights news and new technology from Henry Ford Hospital in Detroit, Michigan. The hospital is a luminary center and also a pioneer of new cardiovascular technologies and techniques in the areas of complex PCI, including chronic total occlusions (CTO) and transcatheter structural heart treatments, including transcatheter valve replacement (TAVR), transcatheter LAA occlusion and MitraClip mitral valve repair. The center has also been at the forefront of how to improve mortality in cardiogenic shock patients and heads the National Cardiogenic Shock Initiative

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.

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.
