Abstract

Although valve repair is applied usually nowadays, particularly for mitral
regurgitation (MR) or tricuspid regurgitation (TR), valve replacement using prosthetic
valves is common especially in adults. Unfortunately the valve with ideal hemodynamic
performance and long-term durability without increasing the risk of bleeding
due to long-term anticoagulant therapy does not exist. Therefore patients and physicians
must choose between bioprosthetic and mechanical valve. Currently clinical
trends towards the increasing use of bioprosthetic valves instead of mechanical valves
even in young patients apparently because of its advantages
