well, as you're new here (and there is nothing on your bio) I'd raise two points
It is often said there are no bad choices but you can seek an optimal one. Advanced age is the biggest predictor of extended durability in bioprosthetics for all these reasons:
- age is a determining factor, if you're over 60 then the Resilia will be as good as any bioprosthetic
- we have very little actual data about how well the Resilia performs in the long run, however everything we know about valves shows that it is unlikely to more than perhaps 20% more durable than previous valves of that generation
I'm not sure if you guys get Saturday Night Live in Australia but for some reason this character, Debbie Downer, reminds me of you... I don't know why... maybe I'm wrong... who knows...
