Dr. Mary Callahan
Internal Medicine - Cardiology
In brief: Heart valves
The mitral and aortic valves are the most often replaced valves, but sometimes the mitral valve can be repaired, but not the aortic valve.
So probably the aortic is the most replaced. It is much less common that the pulmonary or tricuspid valve be replaced.
