Yes, those posting are probably more likely to be in the relatively recent "buyer" group, or also ready for a "trade-in", but still good to see, and many certainly stick around for the duration.It seems that after a period of time we don't hear from tissue valvers until it's re-op time or an issue comes up. Hopefully some of the 'older' ones will chime in.
I think me and Steve were about a week or 2 apart...same valve.Mooo! My Edwards bovine pericardial valve is only 15 months old. Still looking forward to a long time before needing to even think about another.
