Replacement heart valve patient happy he went to St. Paul's Hospital
Robert Chidley addressed a crowd on June 5, 2014 to celebrate the 1,000th transcatheter heart valve (THV) procedure by the Centre for Heart Valve Innovation at St. Paul's Hospital in Vancouver, BC. Chidley received a THV procedure at St. Paul's to replace a faulty valve in his heart. The Centre for Heart Valve Innovation at St. Paul's is recognized internationally as a pioneer of innovative, minimally invasive heart valve replacement procedures that provide an alternative for patients who are at higher risk for open-heart surgery.
