The new device, which is minimally invasive treats the condition quickly and cost effectively, with no need for long-stay hospital care.
The device has been developed by CroíValve, whose CEO is Lucy O'Keeffe.
Lucy is the daughter of Janet and Jerry O'Keeffe.
Jerry was a Dominican priest of the Irish Province. He was ordained a priest in 1968 and resigned from ministry in 1977.
Congrats to Lucy and the family.
