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
