I appreciate the effort you made to reference the clinical trial and research paper. However, I already had reviewed both quite a while ago. In fact, I was scheduled to be the first research human being to undergo the procedure but due to scheduling problems in the spring, I was unable to do so. Other developments then led me to not undergo the procedure yet. I am keenly interested in knowing how the first patient did. I believe there will be a second patient this week or next and then a third patient. If Dr. Borlaug is successful with this new clinical trial, it would indeed be a game changer for other patients such as myself with HFpEF. Looking forward to hearing more about this when it is available.
