Cardiovascular disease is responsible for one in four deaths that occur annually in America. Those suffering from heart disease have the option of treating it with bypass surgery. This procedure allows for blood flow to be better navigated through the heart muscle by opening vessels or creating new passageways. In turn, an extended period of life and a better quality of life are the expected outcomes for the patient.
We are seeing progression in the technology used to perform this life changing surgery. New methods and technology are being implemented that allow for the operation to be less invasive. Furthermore, these advancements assist in avoiding infections and complications, and essentially pave the way for a quicker recovery.
“Leading Edge with Jimmy Johnson” will shine a light on heart disease and educate the viewers on the importance of considering bypass surgery for themselves or their loved ones. The “Leading Edge” series will also feature medical professionals treating patients who choose to undergo this procedure.
The series is distributed to Public Television stations throughout the United States and is not distributed through PBS. Please visit the Leading Edge website at http://www.leadingedgeseries.com or email the producers at info(at)leadingedgeseries(dot)com for more information.
