Case Study #2

Slide 15

September 2011

Well, this is a case study number two. This is an unusual case of a 77-year-old lady who had a porcine valve implanted in September of 2005. This is a valve from a pig source that is implanted and they seem to last for a long time and are very successful implants. She also during that same time had a coronary artery bypass surgery and this is a lot of surgery for a 77-year-old lady. She did well. She had no problems and no evidence of infection and she went home and did fine.
