Verma Featured in KSDK Profile of Heart Attack Patient

Assistant Professor of Medicine and Director of Cardio-Obstetrics, Dr. Amanda Verma, was featured in a KSDK Sports Plus profile of a patient on the road to recovery after a heart attack.

The patient, Dan Rolfe, is a 52 year old high school basketball coach. Dr. Verma explained to KSDK, “this is the left anterior descending artery, also called the Widowmaker. So it supplies the majority of blood to the heart muscle. There should be a nice long vessel with branches that are coming here … so that’s his major blockage that’s causing the heart attack.”
