Tissue valves: The size of pig and cow valves approximates the size of human valves. They are chemically treated to decrease the likelihood of tissue rejection. The porcine valves are more commonly used than the bovine. ...Read more
Tissue valves: We use beef, pig and human aortic valves as replacements in humans. Those three most closely simulate the size of the human valves. ...Read more
It is a body tissue that has the ability to contract. It shortens and generates force. It relaxes and returns to its original length.
