Amazing Stories


In 2009, at the age of 24, our patient had a occlusion of heart arteries due to extremely high cholesterol and had to undergo bypass surgery. A genetic hypercholesterinemia disease had affected all his blood vessels.

The disease also started to narrow the aortic valve, and we had to perform a second heart surgery in September 2022 because the extreme aortic stenosis eventually brought the aortic vessel to the point of bursting. We replace the aortic valve with a new mechanical metal valve and the aortic artery with an artificial one.

Later, when he had returned to a relatively normal life, in April 2023, at the age of 38, he required a pacemaker for arrhythmia.
