WHAT: On Thursday, January 25 at 4 p.m., the medical staff who cared for 98-year-old patient, Dorothy Lowman, will celebrate her 99th birthday with a party in the same place she received heart treatment at Dallas Valve Institute, located at Medical City Dallas.
Lowman visited Dallas Valve Institute in November 2017 with aortic stenosis, a serious valve disease, which occurs when a heart valve is too narrow. She was previously told her condition was untreatable due to her age, but was able to undergo a transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR) procedure by interventional cardiologist, Dr. Bruce Bowers, cardiovascular surgeon, Dr. Todd Dewey. TAVR is a minimally invasive treatment for severe aortic stenosis.
She was able to return home the day after her TAVR procedure and is in good health today. Each year, more than 200,000 Americans suffer with severe aortic stenosis, with more than 60,000 aortic valve replacement procedures performed annually.
WHEN: Thursday, January 25, 4 p.m.
WHERE: Medical City Dallas
Dallas Valve Institute, Suite A323
7777 Forest Ln.
Dallas, TX 75230
