Yikes! Glad I saw this!!
Commented on mechanical valve almost 3 years ago
the alere INRatio and INRatio2 PT/INR Monitor system was recalled for certain conditions - you should check on this.
I have the OnX too (7/28/15). The cardiothoracic surgeon (Albuquerque) mentioned that due to the coating on that valve, lower INR provides no greater risk of stroke with less risk of bleeding.
I then saw a team (USM Portland) that had just replicated the study with similar results.
I have not read the oriental article, but it is:
The article is: Reduced anticoagulation after mechanical aortic valve replacement: Interim results from the Prospective Randomaized On-X Valve Anticoagulation Clinical Trial randomized Food and Drug Administration investigational device exemption trial. The Journal of Thoracic and Cardiovascular Surgery, Volume 147, Issue 4, April 2014, Pages 1202-1211.e2
