Annotation: Rare is the family untouched by heart disease. In the not too distant past treatment consisted of little more than making the patient comfortable, and was accompanied by a dependence on family. Cardiac care is now geared to restoring the patient to a vigorous, productive life, in many cases more robust than before. Under the direction of Dr. James, Mike Ranville epitomizes the success of the new approach.
