PMID:  9196319     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
A device to rotate valve prostheses is described. By using a polythene tubing universal joint the valve may be turned by twisting the handle of the valve rotator without altering its spatial orientation. This modification was designed to facilitate what can be a frustrating manoeuvre and should be applicable to any rotatable valve.
