Hi. I'm just back from traveling to New Orleans for post-op with surgeon. I got pretty good news, and he even released me to drive after 4 weeks. He also released me from his care, and now I'm under the care of my cardiologist locally. We discussed the mechanical valve he put in, (the St. Jude regent). Today I go out and check the mail, and I receive a letter from Medtronic, stating that I have a Medtronic Open Pivot Valve, and a registration card. Needless to say, I was/am a bit stunned. I was just wondering if this has happened to anyone else. I know that sometimes one valve may be a better fit, but I was never notified of such. I've done no research on that brand, but I guess I will now. Thanks
No announcement yet.
