Thursday, January 17, 2013 - 10:00am
WHAT:          Green Valley Lecture Series with cardiology specialists from the University of Arizona Sarver Heart Center
In cooperation with Green Valley Recreation, Inc.
TOPIC:          New Method for Opening Arteries: Update on Surgery and Interventional Approaches
More and more, open-heart-surgery chest scars are being replaced by tiny incisions where cardiologists in the cath lab insert small, flexible catheters to repair arteries and valves, keeping the heart healthier and patient recovery times shorter. Learn about heart conditions that are being treated with these updated procedures.
