: Had AVR in 1988 with allograph. Can next replacement be done with minimally invasive procedure for "repeat" AVR? What is latest in mechanical valves.
Am allergic to penicillan. Is Vancomycin only other alternative for dental work - no oral meds that can be used? Is intense itching when Vanco pushed in less than 60 mins normal side affect?
