The Rolling Stones frontman Mick Jagger has tweeted a new photo of himself after his heart surgery.
Mick Jagger tweeted, “A walk in the park !”
Bloomberg reported that in a research note Larry Biegelsen, an analyst for Wells Fargo spoke about how Jagger’s experience was drawing attention to the space.
Biegelsen wrote this will “likely raise awareness of aortic stenosis and potentially lead to more TAVR procedures which should benefit the TAVR manufacturers,” according to the report from Bloomberg . “When celebrities like Mick Jagger undergo a surgical procedure, it tends to shine a light on the underlying disease and raise awareness of the procedure itself because of the publicity it generates.”
The procedure has been getting some heavy publicity lately. Prior to Jagger’s procedure, A March 20tharticle from Michigan Health reported how TAVR helped a 70-year-old go from having 18 months to live, to getting healthy enough to dance at her wedding.
In addition, results presented at the American College of Cardiology Conference from a multicenter clinical trial significantly boosted the procedure. Findings from the study show that TAVR performed better than open-heart surgery in low-risk patients with severe aortic stenosis.
“These devices have already shattered many treatment paradigms and we expect them to continue to impact how heart valve disease is treated in the future,” Biegelsen wrote in his report, according to a report from Bloomberg.
