PIG VALVES

HELLO,

    I am a new member. I thank you so much for this service! I would like to know about how long the pig valves normally last?

between 15-20 years and are usually put into patients who are 60 or over. Mechanical
valves last longer. Did you know that cow tissue is also used in some valves?
Bovine valves are not as long lasting as mechanical either and are made from the cows
heart tissue, not its valves.
