Paul Remarcik

Paul RemarcikPaul knew he had a bad heart valve since a heart attack in 2011. His cardiologist kept an eye on it, but last fall symptoms became worse. “I couldn’t go 20 feet without huffing and puffing,” said Paul. “I couldn’t stand. I couldn’t walk.”

Paul's doctor recommended MitraClip, a treatment option for those who are not candidates for surgery. In this less-invasive procedure, doctors guide a catheter through a vein in the leg to the mitral valve in the heart. A small metal clip is then attached to the mitral valve, enabling it to open and close more completely without leaking, restoring normal blood flow.
