More information

A fall or car accident could cause a heart trauma that you might not know about. Or, as you get older, you could have a damaged aortic valve; are you at risk and what are the symptoms? How are lives saved and hearts repaired? Find out with Peter Tsai, MD, medical director of Cardiothoracic Surgery, and Benjamin Plank, MD, interventional cardiologist, from The Queen’s Medical Center.

  • Cardiac and thoracic trauma
  • Penetrating and non-penetrating trauma to the chest
  • Injury to heart valves and vessels
  • Injury to aorta and great vessels
  • Aortic valve stenosis – what is it, who can get it, symptoms and treatment options
  • Transcatheter aortic valve replacement — what is it, how is it done, who can get it
