FCCI supports the « Transcatheter Valve Program » of the McGill University Health Center

February 5, 2013

The Italian-Canadian Community Foundation (ICCF) is pleased to announce a donation of $50,000 to the Royal Victoria Hospital Foundation in favour of the Transcatheter Valve Program of the McGill University Health Center, a research initiative promoted by Dr. Nicolò Piazza and Dr. Giuseppe Martucci.

Dr. Piazza has clinical duties at the Royal Victoria Hospital and at the Montreal General Hospital. His clinical and research responsibilities focus primarily on valvular heart disease with particular interest in transcatheter aortic and mitral valve therapies.

Mr. Carmine D’Argenio, ICCF President, declared how proud his organization was to support this major innovation and reported the ICCF’s desire to assist in combating cardiovascular diseases, accounting for approximately one-third of all deaths in Canada each year. Mrs Anna Giampà, ICCF Executive Director, pointed out that this kind of novel surgery is indicated for high or prohibitive surgical risk patients who cannot undergo traditional surgery.

Funds raised at the 25th Annual Golf Tournament, under the honorary presidency of Mr. Giuseppe Borsellino and presidency of Mr. Silvio Sicoli, have made this donation possible. The formal presentation of the donation was held last December 11, 2012 during ICCF’s Christmas Cocktail, in the presence of Mrs Gabriela Conte, Development Officer – Major Donations at the Royal Victoria Hospital Foundation.

The Italian-Canadian Community Foundation wishes to thank the Royal Victoria Hospital Foundation, Drs. Nicolò Piazza and Giuseppe Martucci and their team for their knowledgeable and professional work.
