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 http://forum.achaheart.org/viewtopic.ph ... b33c1efcac

There are also webinars, including one on valve replacement options and another on bicuspid aortic valves: https://www.achaheart.org/your-heart/li ... /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.
