  • The use of bioprosthetic valves fabricated from fixed heterograft tissue (porcine aortic valves or bovine pericardium) in heart valve replacement surgery is limited because of calcification-related failures. The mechanism of calcification of bioprosthetic valves is quite complex and has a variety of determinants, including host factors, tissue fixation conditions, and mechanical effects. Currently, there is no effective therapy to prevent calcification in clinical settings. This article reviews… CONTINUE READING
