**The name of this podcast is changing on 6/4/24 to Open Heart Surgery with Boots.**

Researchers at Michigan Medicine developed a model for thoracic aortic aneurysms using bioengineered grafts, offering hope for heart patients like Boots. Additionally, Boots discusses the limited access to open heart surgery in Zimbabwe, where only nine surgeries were performed in the first quarter of 2024 (but hey... the surgery is free there). This highlights the need for increased awareness and support for heart patients globally. Stay tuned for more updates on heart surgery advancements and join the community of fellow heart patients on the upcoming rebranded podcast, "Open Heart Surgery with Boots."
