FYI, all heart valves are high risk Class III medical devices.
Got it thanks! I read in another post that you work in the valve industry. By any chance you know how I might find out the Foldax India trial size?

Bottom line: We will not know if the Foldax is superior to other valves or not for at least another decade or so...
That makes sense. I guess I should not overanalyze it and let time reveal the possibilities. It is hard but I will try :)

So I set that as a background and went about living life with my only goals being to develop myself and keep on learning.
That's a great attitude of living! I like your quote a lot - “We have two lives and the second begins when you realize you only have one.

I cant find the sample size of their India clinic trial. Wondering if that would be large scale.
The Indian testing group is definitely smaller than US (I remember that, though can't find the pricise number now), but that compensates with shorter term of the trial, after which everyone is welcome to the surgery, as I understand. India alone has 1,4 bn population, and count the medical tourists too.
