MedStar Union Memorial Hospital reached a big milestone with the 1,000th transcatheter aortic valve replacement without open-heart surgery. The team recently replaced the aortic valve of Ken Rogers, 67, of Dundalk. Instead of open-heart surgery, physicians access the heart with a replacement valve attached to the end of a catheter that’s then inserted through the groin.
