Pulmonary valve autografts and allografts have been recently reported as being clinically effective for the replacement of the diseased aortic valve. While the biomechanics of the aortic valve have been widely studied, there is little information available about the mechanical properties of the pulmonary valve. We felt that it was necessary to investigate… CONTINUE READING
