February 6, 2020

First-year medical resident at Wheeling Hospital, Dr. Monica Singh, recently presented research conducted with Wheeling hospital physicians Drs. David Haybron, Triston Smith and Sathyanarayana Machani at the Fourth Annual Resident Poster Competition hosted by the Society of Hospital Medicine Pittsburgh Chapter. Her research examined at the outcomes of an intermediate-risk patient undergoing a TAVR (transcatheter aortic valve replacement) procedure. No complications were found in the intermediate-risk patient, providing further support for the safety and effectiveness of TAVR procedures. TAVR, which is performed at Wheeling Hospital, is a minimally invasive procedure that replaces aortic valves without the need for open-heart surgery.
