Fractured L1 & S3 almost 8 wks ago & pain & physical limitations are beginning to return. why?

Ian in a clinical study for the sapien S3 aorta valve are you familiar with this valve is it better than open heart?

Ian in a clinical study for the sapien S3 aorta valve are you familiar with this valve is it better than open heart?

Time will tell: The clinical study you are participating in should give us more information on the efficacy of the Sapien valve vs open heart.
