Biological heart valves: Biologic valves, however, are not so long-lasting, but many times they do the right thing for 10-15 years. If the surgeon uses this kind of valve into your surgery, then you may have to take the surgery again after 5-10 years.
Mechanical heart valves: This valve does a ticking sound that is almost equal to no. This sound arises due to opening and closing of leaflets. If you want to keep the valve applied after your surgery for a long time, you can go for mechanical heart valves. But these valves increase the risks of the stroke.
Homograft heart valves: Homografts valves are ideal heart valves for aortic valve replacement. This valve is used if your aortic valve contains any infection or disease.
