    Wait until to make sure the valve does not get infected. In most operations in India, the infection happens, and the valve becomes dysfunctional. May Indians who have had these kinds of replacements-this is not pioneering surgery anyway-South Africa’s Christiaan Barnard’s Memorial Hospital ( Christiaan Barnard was the Surgeon who carried out the world ‘s first heart transplant surgery), this is a routine operation.
