Transcatheter Repair of Atrial Septal Defect

Akron, OH- Not long ago, open-heart surgery was required to close holes in the heart. Today, however, cardiologists can successfully repair some of these heart defects in the catheterization lab in just a couple of hours.

On Tuesday, Aug. 8, from 5 to 6 p.m., watch a live Webcast about transcatheter repair of atrial septal defect (ASD), commonly referred to as a "hole in the heart."

The Webcast will feature video of both a child and adult undergoing the catheter-based procedure, followed by a live, interactive panel discussion with Akron Children's Hospital's Heart Center doctors and the adult patient. Panelists will include pediatric heart surgeon Phil Smith, M.D., Ph.D., who is also the clinical director of the Heart Center; cardiologist John Lane, M.D., director of the Adult Congenital Heart Service; and pediatric cardiologist David Waight, M.D., director of the Interventional Cardiology Program.

Video of the procedure and interview will be followed by a live, interactive panel discussion with Akron Children's Hospital's Heart Center doctors and the adult patient. Panelists will include pediatric heart surgeon Phil Smith, M.D., Ph.D., who is also the clinical director of the Heart Center; cardiologist John Lane, M.D., director of the Adult Congenital Heart Service; and pediatric cardiologist David Waight, M.D., director of the Interventional Cardiology Program.
