Add info from Gore website

Ventricular Septal Defect

  • Hole between right & left ventricles

  • Wall between ventricles forms as fetus grows / hole remains if wall doesn’t completely form

  • Hole may eventually close after birth

  • Too much blood pumped to lungs – increased risk for pulmonary hypertension and heart failure

  • Can result from heart attack in adults

  • Symptoms include difficulty in breathing and rapid heart rate

  • Treated surgically


Stroke Prevention and TherapySignificant Clinical Need

  • “About 700,00 Americans will have a stroke this year - one every 45 seconds”

  • “Stroke is our nations No.3 Killer and leading cause of severe, long-term disability”

  • “The direct and indirect cost of stroke is $53.6 billion”
