What a silly title for a post about Aortic Heart Valves...
According to the Cleveland Clinic (coincidently not founded by Cleveland Shown to the right, ) the aortic heart valve lets blood into and keeps blood out of the heart. Somehow this ebb and flow of blood keeps the human being alive by circulating the blood. I hear that if the heart valves fail to keep the blood in the heart while at the same time letting blood leak out, you got a problem.
Some really smart people have probably had heart valves replaced. Some stoopid people probably have too. The problem with starting this paragraph is that there was almost no way to verify a. that there are people who have had this surgery and b. that those that did had any sort of intelligence be it above or below normal.
Rumor has it that Dave Edmunds
(semi-famous guitar player) who has recorded music that I've likely never heard has had aortic valve replacement surgery.
He looks happy. I think the picture might have been taken close to 12 minutes after the surgery...
Until you read again... LATE!
