Repairing a Broken Heart

By

hopes of avoiding a risky and painful heart transplant, a Mason City man has put his health and life in the hands of the Mayo Clinic, and a new blood treatment to hopefully heal his heart. "You're only number two here?"… Mayo Clinic Medical Director for the Apheresis Therapy Unit Dr. Jeffrey Winters says, "Their heart is continuing to function better, its showing improvement over that whole period of time. So I'm hoping with this device that we'll see similar findings".
