    Coag-Sense versus CoaguChek xs and labs

    Upcoming Surgery

    that's wise and its always good to do due dilligence in researching what you are not inclined towards, that's actually proper research (rather than just feeding in confirmation to your existing bias) Your welcome. A little surprised that a surgeon wouldn't give you a choice in valve brand...
