Local doctor enrolls patients for parachute heart clinical trial

TAMPA - If you watched Grey's Anatomy on Thursday, you saw a scene where Dr. Yang inserted a parachute-shaped device into a man's heart.  It's a brand new treatment to prolong the lives of those in heart failure.

A local doctor is enrolling local patients in a clinical trial to see if the parachute really works.

For info on the Parachute trial call 813-55-HEART.
