Agreed. The others can fend for themselves. Actually, the one on the left would probably provide adequate ballast, if I had a sidecar. The guy on top can get on his unicycle, once he gets back on the ground, and pedal away.
yes, that is the ultimate solution to the problem of contestive valve failure. I have this case mentioned on my blog:I thought I read somewhere that if you get a clot on the valve they will replace it, although they can try and dissolve it first.
Thanks - if I follow this 2002 article correctly, the data was collected from 96 to 2001, the AVR folks were on 2.5-3.5 anticoagulant in that era & the 5 yr data on them was favorable. The authors then suggest at the end of the article that a future study of On-X at a lower dose anticoagulant would be helpful.
