hartklep vervanging

Dr,
Ek het mitraalklep inkompetensie, maar dis nog nie so erg dat dit vervang gaan word nie - tog besef ek dat dit seker eendag oor my paadjie sal kom. Ek het gelees van ' n nuwe prosedure waar die klep vervang word op soortgelyke wyse as ' n stent wat ingeplaas word. dan is ope-hart chirurgie nie nodig nie. Ek lees dat Elizabeth Taylor binnekort so ' n klep vervanging ondergaan - sy noem dit ' n clip procedure. Enige inligting wat ek hieroor kan kry en waar?
