Abstract :

The heart is a vital part of human anatomy because it functions as a pump to circulate blood throughout the body. Heart valves allow the heart to pump blood to specific locations efficiently. These valves are prone to disease and malfunction, and can be replaced by prosthetic heart valves. The two main types of prosthetic heart valves are mechanical and bioprosthetic. The mechanical valves are excellent in terms of durability, but are hindered by their tendency to coagulate the blood. Bioprosthetic valves are less durable and must be replaced periodically. When one of the valves of the heart becomes infected with a disease, it can be replaced with one of several different types of prosthetic valves. No prosthetic valve is ideal. None of the available mechanical or biologic valves has the performance and durability of the native human semilunar and atrioventricular valves. Therefore, the selection of a valve must take into account the relative advantages and disadvantages of a particular prosthesis and how to apply to the patient's risk profile.
