Charlie needs a fancy new aortic valve and a used liver. In that order and PDQ.  Autoimmune liver disease + severe aortic insufficiency (regurgitation).  Given his combination of conditions and heart architecture, a new type of valve called the JenaValve (currently being tested in Europe and perhaps a few sites in the U.S.) appears to be his only option. We are exploring all options for a valve and getting second and third opinions, knowing that success there would preserve the hope of a liver transplant.
