    Ticking Time bomb?

    ok, well if that was cryo-preserved then you'll likely get good milage out of that. I got 20 years out of my aortic homograft and I was operated on at 28 for that one. The evidence is they lasted longer on older patients. Freedom from reoperation for structural deterioration was very patient...

    Shingrix and INR

    my view is that you need to transcend beyond being anal to being directed and rigourous. Several experiments (month long) done by me over the years have shown that being extreeeemly consistent (around both not having any and having a regular (perhaps overly healthy) level of greens made no...

    Should I Have a Stent?

    my view is that if you're a wealthy enough celebrity who does not want any disruption to a high earning career you can pretty much get what you want.

    Lumps and bruises

    Well firstly it's not just that one paper, but that paper presents it well. Secondly that paper presents data from thousands of patients and happens to present it in a graph that I find well done and good at communicating the issues. You should read it, it is the results of a study of 4,202...

    Ticking Time bomb?

    interesting case. I'm a bit unsure that anything would "reabsorb" or even that its a vegetative mass (but equally I'm not sure they're sure either). Calcification of valves does not follow the usual calcium cycles in the bones (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bone_resorption ) which is I...
