Sorry the repair isn't working out.
I got a St. Jude nearly 8 years ago. My husband had MV repair nearly 4 years ago -- one or two of the chordae ruptured due to deceleration trauma when the airbag went off during a car accident. He had no other issues with the mitral or any other valve. He's due an echo soon. Since his cardio retired in December, we need to move his care over to my cardio.
