Infection

Posted by @nanadoris, Fri, Feb 16 9:17am

I talked to someone with a relative who had a mechanical valve and it got really infected. Is a mechanical valve more prone to this complication?

REPLY

My husband received a mechanical valve 20 years ago and has never had an infection or any other problem with it.

Hi @nanadoris,

I'm tagging @judytru @grward to invite them to join this discussion as their daughters have a mechanical valve. @kelovich too, has written about it, and would perhaps have some more insight for you.
