MORGANTOWN, W.Va. – A free blood pressure screening at his local volunteer fire department may have saved one man’s life.
Harry Kellar, 52, of Cutler, Ohio, father of four, coach of his son’s junior high football team, and machine maintenance planner at Kraton Polymers, felt fine. His older son’s high school football team was hosting an ice cream social at the firehouse, and Kellar stopped by the blood pressure booth for a quick check.
A handful of doctors’ appointments and referrals later, Kellar found out that an artery in his heart was 100 percent blocked. He needed a coronary artery bypass. Kellar had watched his father’s long recovery from traditional bypass surgery, in which the breastbone is split and the ribcage separated in order to access the heart. He wanted to avoid that experience if at all possible.
Fortunately, just two hours away, the WVU Heart and Vascular Institute offers minimally invasive direct coronary artery bypass. With the aid of a surgical robot, the entire procedure can be performed through a few small incisions between the ribs on the left side.
