Health Tracks: Subaortic Stenosis
Hound MixMarley was barely eight-weeks old in 2008 when his veterinarian heard a severe heart murmur in the hound-mix’s chest. Marley’s owner, Debbie Suttles, was referred to Herbert Maisenbacher, VMD, at the University of Florida College of Veterinary Medicine. After Maisenbacher confirmed the diagnosis of severe subaortic stenosis (SAS), a congenital heart disease, he told Suttles about a study funded by an AKC Canine Health Foundation grant.  Cardiology Chief Amara Estrada, DVM, was exploring a new procedure to treat SAS. Read the great results Marley and other dogs with SAS have had with the procedure.
