Dr. Mario Gössl, MHIF Valve Science Center Researcher, chatted about heart valve disease with Roshini Rajkumar on WCCO Radio.
More than 5 million Americans have heart valve disease (HVD); which can cause heart attacks, arrhythmia, congestive heart failure and other heart disease—significantly impacting quality of life and even leading to death. The good news is that most HVD can be successfully treated in patients of all ages. Unfortunately, awareness of HVD is alarmingly low, with close to half of respondents to a national survey reporting that they have not heard of HVD. This is why an awareness day dedicated to heart valve disease is so important. Listen to the radio interview by clicking on the WCCO image to the left.
