In brief: Histology
Histology is the scientific study of cell and tissues and the raw data comes from gross, microscopic (light and electron), and immunochemical examination.
Heart valves are tissues just like virtually all structures are in living organisms. (trust me!).

In brief: Histological
The components that comprise a normal heart valve have been examined extensively and histologically identified.
The components which make up the heart valve are consistent with the definition of what constitutes a type of tissue.
