Marfan Dissection and My St Jude Aortic Valve

Along with the Dacron Graft I received a St. Jude valva.  Below is a photo of the specific model that keeps me alive.  The surgeon, Dr. Bates told me later he could have used a pig valve but since I was younger at the time he used the metal valve.  Supposedly it is rated to last ten thousand years.
