What's wrong with my heart?
On Tuesday, March 18th, I went in for open heart surgery. My cardiac surgeon used angiogram technology in order to look at my heart from the inside.
From this angiogram, it was found that I had one blocked artery to my heart. Also, my heart's aortic valve was badly formed. This valve had a great deal of calcification and stenois, a disease that causes a narrowing of the aortic valve opening.
I would have my chest opened up in order to replace my aortic valve with a fabricated one of cow tissue. The blocked artery would be replaced as well.
