With all the advancement of medical science, why do they have to do open heart surgery to fix
the Aortic Valve?? For children they do the balloon catherizations, but on adults it's valve replacement
with open heart...why can't they work around the chest plate???
Just venting my daughter has Aortic Stenosis and she is 19 yrs old and I hope they come up with better procedures for her....
Hope y'all don't mind...
