Missouri Baptist Medical Center First in Region to Perform Innovative Heart Valve Replacement

Missouri Baptist Medical Center is the first heart center in the region, and one of the first in the nation, to perform a percutaneous implantation (a needle puncture of the skin, rather than an “open” approach) of a newly approved valve to fix a heart valve that was surgically implanted 13 years ago. This new valve allowed the surgeon and cardiologist to treat the patient with a transcatheter valve-in-valve replacement, instead of performing open-heart surgery.
