360 Degree View of a Caval Valve Implantation Demonstration at Henry Ford Hospital

director of structural heart imaging, Henry Ford Hospital, Detroit, Mich., illustrates how patient survival depends on keeping the left ventricular outflow track (LVOT) clear during transcatheter mitral valve valve-in-valve replacement using a 3-D printed heart from a patient and a Sapien transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR) valve.

This 360 degree photo shows Dee Dee Wang, M.D., director of structural heart imaging, Henry Ford Hospital, Detroit, Mich., shows how a Sapien transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR) valve placed in the inferior vena cava can be used as an interventional treatment of severe tricuspid regurgitation. The procedure is known as the caval valve implantation (CAVI). 

Henry Ford recently celebrated treating its 1,000th patient using 3-D printed hearts from patient's CT scan to help plan and navigate in complex anatomy.
