My Mechanical Aortic Valve has Opened and Closed Over 100,000,000 Times!

Check out the quick video of my St. Jude Medical aortic valve!  Next month I will have had the device for three years (time has flown by).  At 60 beats per minute average the artificial aortic valve has opened and closed 100,000,000 times.  That is totally amazing.  I sure hope it keeps going!

Wow! My that's a lot of beats! I've had my valve since 1997, I don't even want to think how high my number is! Let's hope both of ours keep "clicking" for a long time!
