    My wife had breathing problem. Angiogram showed tow flaps were calcified. Also it showed porcelain aorta. So open heart surgery was ruled out. Dr. Rajendra Makkar at Cedar Sinai in Beverly Hills, CA used the trans catheter procedure going from both the groins put the Edwards (Irvine, CA) bovine valve. Also a pace maker was installed. She has atrial fibrillation so she is put on Coumadin = a baby aspirin. After a week, she developed some blisters on left leg and thigh.
