3 yrs 6 months on St Jude Trifecta. Was just told that there is moderate leakage. Testing to follow. Feel good with no adverse symptoms. Asked about a TAVR when the time comes. Answer was a definite maybe. Wondering why a valve would misbehave so soon.

Got a St. Jude aortic valve in 2007, which makes it 13 years so far.
The surgeon said the valve would last longer than I would and he wanted it back when I was through with it.
He's dead, so I guess I'm safe.
