Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) April 10, 2013
HeartValveSurgery.com, the largest online resource and community of patients with heart valve disease, announced today that its newly published Aortic Stenosis Infographic is raising awareness to the dangerous realities of valvular disorders.
“Aortic Stenosis is a deadly disease that is not properly diagnosed in 750,000 people across the United States,” stated Adam Pick, former patient and founder of HeartValveSurgery.com. “The Aortic Stenosis Infographic is a new tool developed to raise awareness to the disease and to the treatment.”
The Aortic Stenosis Infographic provides patients, their families and friends a visually stimulating and informative display of critical facts specific to this fatal disease. Research suggests that 50% of patients, who do not undergo treatment, die just two years after the onset of symptoms caused by aortic stenosis. To see the infographic, click here.
The social response to the Aortic Stenosis Infographic, thus far, has been favorable. Since posting the infographic at HeartValveSugery.com, more than 450 social actions have occurred across Facebook and Twitter. This represents a 270% increase in social activity compared to prior posts at the website, according to Pick.
“As a former aortic stenosis patient, I am encouraged by the early results of this campaign,” noted Pick, who had aortic valve replacement surgery in 2005. “However, we need to do more. People need to learn about aortic valve stenosis – its causes, its symptoms and its treatment.”
