The Center for Valve and Structural Heart Disease at Minneapolis Heart Institute® at Abbott Northwestern Hospital is world renowned. We evaluate our patients in a dedicated clinic, using a multidisciplinary, heart-team approach.
Our team provides world-class care for a broad range of diseases affecting the cardiac valves and structural heart lesions. Patients benefit from expert evaluations that include advanced cardiac imaging with echocardiography, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), and computed tomography
(CT). A multidisciplinary approach enables the delivery of the most innovative transcatheter and surgical therapies for treating valve and structural heart disease, including investigational approaches that are provided at only a few centers in the world.
State-of-the-art therapies available:
Patient may be eligible for participation in clinical trials, and have access to unique and innovative therapies. Our center has a long history of participating in major clinical trials of valvular and structural heart disease and remains the global leader in this area.
In April 2015, the first transcatheter mitral valve replacement in the U.S. was performed at our center. The procedure is performed through a small thoracotomy (i.e., incision between the ribs), and without the need for cardiopulmonary bypass (or heart-lung machine). Our center continues to have
the highest volume of patients for this novel procedure in the world.
