Tiffany is a 9 year old Maltipoo from New York, NY. Tiffany was diagnosed on October 4, 2016 with stage C MVD. It was also suspected that she had numerous ruptured chordae tendineae. Her prognosis was poor. Her disease had a rapid onset and quick progression. At her prior check-up no murmur was even detected. 

Tiffany had surgery with Dr. Uechi at the BOZON Clinic on December 6, 2016. As suspected, Tiffany had 5 ruptured chordae tendineae that were successfully replaced. Prior to surgery, Tiffany’s heart was extremely enlarged. It is now almost within the margins of normalcy, and her mitral valve regurgitation is minimal. She is also off all medication.
