  • replace diseased valves and are also used in mechanical cardiac assist devices. Patients with hear t valve dysfunction often require surgical intervention to correct the defect and in many cases the valve must be completely replaced. It is estimated that up to 275000 substitute valves are implanted per year worldwide and upwards of 75000 valve replacement procedures are performed annually in the USA alone (1). In addition, there is a population of young, growing patients with valvular heart… CONTINUE READING
