What heart valve affects the lungs?

All. Really all heart valves can affect the lungs one way or another. The valves on the left side (aortic and mitral) can do this because when they do not function properly, usually lungs get congested, the valves on the right side (pulmonic and tricuspid) can affect the lungs usually if they are atretic (small) at birth, leading to underdevelopment of the lungs.
That's not. How it works, reword your question & we'll give it a try. You are probably thinking of the pulmonic valve.

Sometimes. Nothing available for the mitral or tricuspid valves yet, but the aortic valve can be replaced with a transcatheter inserted valve. This is not for everyone though.

What is the function of heart valve?

To direct flow. A heart valve functions to allow unidirectional blood flow. When chambers of the heart contract, one heart valve will open and one will close; this effectively allows only one low resistance pathway for the blood to follow. If there were no valves, blood would flow backwards from where it just came as well as forwards. This would significantly decrease the effectiveness of the heart as a pump. Read more...
