National Survey Of Heart Valve Patients Shows Importance Of Seeking Treatment Early

A new national survey conducted by HeartValveSurgery.com (HVS), and supported by Medtronic, uncovered patient perceptions about heart valve disease and treatment options. The survey received over 3,400 responses in seven days from heart valve patients, their family members and friends. The survey found that nearly half (49 percent) of heart valve patients said returning to active living is a key factor in their treatment decision. The survey findings helped kick off a new Active Living Awareness Initiative.
