Heart Valve Disease: Innovative Treatments

with Robert Cubeddu, MD and Amar Krishnaswamy, MD

Description:

Heart valve disease occurs when one or more of the heart valves do not work correctly because of valvular stenosis or valvular insufficiency. In many cases, heart valves can be surgically repaired or replaced, restoring normal function and allowing the person to return to normal activities. Please join us to have your heart valve disease questions answered by Cleveland Clinic Florida Interventional Cardiologist, Robert Cubeddu, MD, and Sydell and Arnold Miller Family Heart & Vascular Institute Interventional Cardiologist, Amar Krishnaswamy, MD.

Ask the Experts - Pectus Excavatum (Sunken Chest) and Carinatum (Pigeon Chest)

with John W. DiFiore, MD, FACS, FAAP and Anthony L. DeRoss, MD, FACS, FAAP

Description:

Pectus excavatum is an abnormal development of the rib cage where the breastbone grows inward, resulting in a sunken chest wall. Commonly known as “sunken chest” or “funnel chest.”

In contrast, pectus carinatum is a condition in which the breastbone protrudes more than usual. The condition is sometimes called “pigeon chest.”

Join Dr. John DiFiore and Dr. Anthony DeRoss for answers to your questions on pectus excavatum and carinatum including minimally invasive and non-invasive treatment options.
