Hi AJC, yes I had a mechanical aortic valve fitted just over 2 years ago at Bristol Heart Institute. The staff are great and look after you really well.

There's an American website with some advice on open heart surgery ... b33c1efcac

There are also webinars, including one on valve replacement options and another on bicuspid aortic valves: ... /webinars/

Not many people come on this forum anymore, it is more lively (and you'll get more responses) on the somerville foundation facebook group.
