So here we are in 2012!

It’s been almost 35 years since the first coronary angioplasty was performed in Zurich, Switzerland, and now we have an 84-year-old baseball icon, who had a heart attack, was treated with angioplasty and a stent, and is released from the hospital after less than 72 hours. And what does he “Tweet“?

“Fans and friends, thank you from the bottom of my heart for your well-wishes. Your thoughts and prayers are the best medicine I can take.”

Well, Tommy…thoughts, prayers and let’s not forget the amazing medical devices as well!!

Best wishes for a full and complete return to your very active life!
