One thing I'll promise you - once you're recovered (actually immediately after surgery) you will never know you have Dacron in you. You won't feel any different. It becomes part of you.
Other than the echo chamber I’m convinced it makes for a while. 😁

I’ve had mechanical with and without Dacron. Maybe it’s luck of the valve. Maybe it’s age, but I swear it’s louder since the graft. I have the SJM valve/graft conduit.

I think the size of my 3rd valve makes it the loudest. A 25mm Carbomedic was placed in a graft created for me during my surgery. Now 13 yrs later, it still sounds like a basketball hitting the wood floor. I’ve always had a graft with my valves. I feel the valve is the culprit.
