Dr. Stacy Fisher, a cardiologist with the University of Maryland Medical System, had a patient with an aortic abnormality. He was not getting enough blood flow through one of the vessels that feed the brain. Because of the narrowing, Fisher recommended surgery to move the vessel where it could get better blood flow. The patient, who was in his 40s, was having mini-stroke episodes before his appointments. Though she had shown him his cardiac and neck MRIs, he remained extremely reluctant to have surgery.
