ACHA Webinars Presents:Update on Percutaneous Valve Replacements
Tuesday, January 26, 2016, 7 p.m. – 8 p.m. EST
About the Webinar
Heart valves have been successfully repaired and replaced by surgeons for almost a century. Sometimes patients want less invasive options or are just too sick for surgery. If you want to learn more about how heart valves are replaced without opening the heart, who is a candidate, what are their options, and what they need to know about the procedure, you want to attend this webinar. Register today so you don’t miss out.
