“I couldn’t be more pleased….”

It's been 14 months since my aortic valve replacement and implant of the On-X mechanical valve.  I couldn't be more pleased with the results.  In the last year, I've averaged walking 3-4 miles per day only missing a few days here and there on account of rain.  Even during this cold winter and last year,…

I’m very pleased with my choice of valve and I’m aware of the excellent results shown by clinical trials so far. It appears that the On-X has the edge on the…

“If I had it to do again would I choose an On-X valve? ABSOLUTELY”

In October of 2010, I was diagnosed with a congenital atrial valve defect requiring surgery. My surgeon and cardiologist were both extremely detailed in what was needed and gave me the opportunity to research each option and then meet with the surgeon again to agree on the time, process etc. After researching the mechanical valve…
