Edwards Inspiris Resilia prosthetic aortic valve. Which hospitals do them?

Hello

This is my first post and i thank you in advance for any advice you may have.

I have a congenital, bicuspid aortic valve with a very severe leak. I am seeing my surgeon for the first time at the LGi (Leeds) on August 1st.

I am 51 years young, i am a runner, i am a wine merchant and i have 2 young kids and a hectic life.

I have like everyone else on here toiled with which heart valve to go with.

1. I have decided that a mechanical valve is not for me because i am not organised enough to monitor myself correctly, i struggle to take one pill per day. Also as i stated above i am a wine merchant and have had a love for wine all my life. I want to continue drinking whenever i like without monitoring myself.

2 The thought of open heart surgery again in a few years does not appeal too much either so that rules out the pigs / cows valve.

3. Edwards Inspiris Resilia prosthetic aortic valve is the valve i would like. The reason behind this is simple. The way i see it is that even if the Edwards Inspiris Resilia prosthetic aortic valve does not last 25 years it is likely to last longer than option 2.

Agree with me or not i have made my decision so my question is which hospitals in the Uk are currently fitting the Edwards Inspiris Resilia prosthetic aortic valve?

Thank You

Johnny

This support group is for headway the brain injury / brain haemorrhage trust. I’m not sure anybody will be able to answer your question. You might want to contact he British Heart foundation healthunlocked.com/bhf/post...

what an idiot i am sorry and thanks

Sorry I am unable to answer your question. I use to be a cancer clinical nurse specialist and knew lots of research hospitals which gave a lot of my clients a better life for the time they lived. Some treatments assisted with there progress but not with quality of life. So as you know it is your Choice and it sounds like you have made it.

Keep in contact and maybe we could meet up for a glass of wine🍷🤔. I enjoy a glass of white wine.

Good luck
