Welcome to the New VR.org!

Welcome to the fresh new ValveReplacement.org!

This new software should allow us to administer more easily and to update the look and feel more easily.

One feature we had originally when we started this adventure 14 years ago, was the personal stories and experiences section. This will be returning very soon. It is a great benefit to be able to learn from the experiences of others. Especially for those who are faced with the new uncertainty of Valve Replacement Surgery.

More soon..

    Try this:
    http://www.echobyweb.com/htm_level2_...ameters_tt.htm

    To convert from cm to mm move the decimal one place to the right.
    1.0cm = 10mm
    10mm = 1.0cm

    Hope this helps
    Effective 6/7/06 I oink!
