Watch Live Minimally Invasive Aortic Valve Replacement

March 31, 2009 - On Thursday, April 2, 2009, at 5 p.m., cardiothoracic surgeon John E. Streitman, M.D. will present a live Webcast of a minimally invasive aortic valve replacement from the Heart Institute at FirstHealth Moore Regional Hospital in Pinehurst, N.C.

James V. Winkley, M.D., will moderate the broadcast. Previously at Walter Reed Army Medical Center, Dr. Winkley joined the Heart Institute at FirstHealth Moore Regional in 2006 and specializes in cardiovascular anesthesiology for a wide range of procedures, including valve replacement.

Dr. Streitman will use a bovine valve to replace the severely blocked valve of an older patient. He will use a minimally invasive technique of one small incision about 2.5 to 3 inches long to access the heart's valve. Once the patient is placed on the heart-lung machine, Dr. Streitman will create an incision in the aorta, the damaged valve will be cut out, and the new valve will be sewn into place. The aorta will then be sewn back together.
