Hi, I am a surgical tech student conducting research on mitral valve prolapse, particularly valve repair/replacement.On visiting your site, I found a 1999 form discussion from 3 Pts. & a doc regarding the advisability of the Ross II procedure. I am curious how these Pts. are fairing, and if any elected the procedure/ outcome of same. Also, if any of your docs have experience/ opinions to offer, I would love to hear from them. It would appear that centres in India are favoring its use, due to the problems of maintaining anticoagulative therapy in underdeveloped nations. I would appreciate any feedback regarding this issue,as well as any leads regarding new therapies being invesigated. Many thanks and best to all.
