    A New Start for Every Heart

    Friday Jun 29
    12 pm - 1 pm

    Lake Charles Memorial Hospital

    Aortic stenosis occurs when calcium builds up within the aortic valve, limiting the valve’s ability to open and close. As the condition progresses, the valve opening narrows, obstructing blood flow and forcing the heart to pump harder. The progression of aortic stenosis cannot be reversed or stopped, but requires surgical intervention to treat. Surgical aortic valve replacement via open heart surgery is an effective treatment, but isn’t suitable for all patients. 

    Fortunately, the Transcatheter Aortic Valve Replacement (TAVR) procedure is available for patients considered to be too high-risk for open-heart surgery. To learn more about aortic stenosis symptoms and treatments as well as TAVR, please join Dr. Edward Bergen, Dr. Gregory Lugo and Dr. Christopher Thompson for their lecture on this newly-available and life saving procedure. 

    A New Start for Every Heart is a free seminar being held at 12 p.m. on Friday, June 29, in the Shearman Conference Center at Memorial Hospital on Oak Park Boulevard. Light lunch will be provided, and reservations are required at least 24 hours in advance. 

    For more information or to make a reservation, please visit lcmh.com/seminar or call

    (337) 494-2936. You can also watch the event live online by visiting lcmh.com/watch.
