June 1 Mended Hearts Meeting: Anticoagulation Treatments

Many people with heart conditions need to take anticoagulants (blood-thinners). Common reasons for this type of treatment include heart valve replacements, heart rhythm disorders or prior complicated surgeries. Blood-thinning medicines slow blood clotting, preventing complications like blood clots forming on artificial valves or in new stents, valve obstruction and blood clots traveling to the brain and causing stroke. Join us at Mended Hearts and meet Dr. Keyoor Patel, a new cardiologist with UHS, who will speak about anticoagulation treatments.

The meeting will take place at UHS Wilson Medical Center, Redwood Room, Basement Level, on Monday, June 1. Meeting begins at 6:30 p.m., followed by the presentation at 7 p.m.
