Jude aortic valve (the rest was aortic shunt, coronary y-graft). I have recently developed a shortness of breath, despite being moderately active, normal
weight (5'11" and 155 lbs), and without any heart disease. This symptom comes with the mildest exertion, sometimes even when at rest. I had a MRI of the entire length of my aorta last Wednesday, and the results show a leak from my aortic prosthesis, as well as mild regurgitation in my mitral valve (present for many years).
