Pictured above is Mike Brown, CCP, Cardiac Surgery Program Manager; and
Mrs. Mae Fink, the first cardiac patient to receive a Transaortic Valve
Replacement (TAVR) procedure at Mary Washington Hospital in 2016. TAVR
is a minimally invasive surgical heart valve replacement procedure for
patients with aortic stenosis who are not surgical candidates for traditional
open heart surgery. It is a less invasive option that enables surgeons
to use a catheter to guide an artificial heart valve through the carotid
artery - directly into the heart, position it within the patient’s
native heart valve and implant the new valve allowing it to restore blood flow.
