  • What is a Heart Valve Replacement Operation?

    Heart valve surgery or valve replacement surgery in cardiac surgery is a very common procedure. Almost as equal but if not pretty close to coronary artery bypass surgery. So the other most common type of valve that will be used for replacement is what we call tissue or valve prosthesis. The most common tissues are cow tissue, made of the heart sac of the cow, or pig valve, and sometimes a combination of both.
