Tuesday, 18 October 2011 19:08

ValveXchange, Inc. has performed successful First In Man (FIM) surgeries demonstrating the practicality and advantages of its novel Vitality™ two-part heart valve system.

“With other valves if you break a suture you’re basically committed to taking the valve off and out. Here there are no leaflets, so it’s very easy to see and put in extra sutures.”

The surgeries were performed by two highly renowned U.S. cardiac surgeons, Lars Svensson, MD, PhD of The Cleveland Clinic and W. Randolph Chitwood, MD of The East Carolina Heart Institute, working with Adrian Ebner, MD at his facilities in Asuncion, Paraguay. The surgeries took place Sept. 26 and 27, 2011. Three men aged 49, 62 and 72 received the Vitality™ heart valves. All have been discharged and are recovering normally.

Wystone's World TeasAt a time when nonprofits are struggling with overhead expenses and reduced donations, Wystone’s World Teas, a JohnstonWells client, is brewing up a program to help organizations fundraise and bring the community a little closer – one cup at a time.

Through its Benefit Brew Program, nonprofit organizations can host their patrons, donors, families and the community at the Wystone’s World Teas location free of charge – kind of like owning a café for the afternoon or evening.

In addition, the participating nonprofit receives 25 percent of the profit from all food and beverage sold during the organization’s event time.  Groups also receive 2 percent back on all in-store receipts that day, as well as online purchases they generate within 12 months.
