New cardiac plug could help patients with heart problems
DETROIT — A medical procedure that could save thousands has been recently developed in Michigan.
A clinical trial is underway in Detroit testing a new device on patients who are prone to strokes.
The new cardiac plug would help prevent those who suffer from irregular heartbeats, which could make them more prone to blood clots and strokes.
The new medical procedure could make things easier for many patients.
If the clinical trial proves the plug is safe, it could improve the quality of life for patients who depend on blood thinners and a strict diet.
