dc.descriptionA Muller-Littlefield aortic valve. The label on the silver tin jar that contains it says the valve is a 30 mm or 1 inch Muller-Littlefield Aortic Valve. The label also says that the valve is "double taped", "double stitched", and "dispersion coated." According to the exhibit card, the Muller-Littlefield aortic valves were developed by Dr. Muller circa 1958-1960. The Muller-Littlefield aortic valve was one of the first prosthetic valves developed and was initially used at the University of Virginia. Dimensions are: 1" H x W x " L; weight no determined due to being too small to register on scale.
