Presentation- Mayo Clinic, Todd and Karen Wanek Family Program for Hypoplastic Left Heart Syndrome
Nearly 2000 infants are born each year with Hypoplastic Left Heart Syndrome and require immediate surgical intervention -- these children remain at risk for a heart transplant throughout their lives. The Todd and Karen Wanek Family Program for Hypoplastic Left Heart Syndrome (HLHS) is a purpose-driven operation forged within an academic medical environment that is designed to accelerate idealism into practice. This entity emerged out of the innovative spirit of Mayo Clinic, dedicated participation of HLHS patients and families, and the focused milestone-based vision of its philanthropic partner. The principle objective of the program is to delay or prevent heart transplant by applying functional regenerative strategies for children with HLHS. Presented by: Timothy J.
