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.
Thanks for this update on Foldax Mitral valve clinical trials in India. As the Indian clinicals report different specs (including shorter length) than the ones in USA, it seems that the Indian Foldax Mitral Clinical participants are "ahead of" the US Mitral participants. Despite no 10-20 yr results yet, things sound promising for Foldax valves that are surgically implanted. Much Gratitude to the Participants in all these Clinical Trials for their courage in venturing into the unknown.
Looks very promising! Wonder how long it’ll be before we’re seeing it in widespread use (assuming it continues to pass all its trials)…
