Vanderbilt Heart to be featured in 30-minute TV special Monday, Sept. 16

Vanderbilt Heart and Vascular Institute will be featured in a 30-minute special to air on WTVF News Channel 5 on Monday, Sept. 16, from 7:30-8 p.m.

Cardiologists, cardiac surgeons, nurses and patients will explain how patients and families can benefit from the next wave of technology and treatment options such as replacing heart valves without open heart surgery, testing patients' DNA to personalize their care, and using ventricular assist devices to improve the lives of heart failure patients, and, in some cases, to serve as a bridge to transplant.
