Natural heart valves become dysfunctional to a variety of pathological causes, some of them including changing lifestyles or even old age. The different types of valves have different qualities which are measured in EOA or Effective Orifice Area. While the mechanical valves are made artificially, the biological valves or tissue valves are usually produced using the valves of animals such as pigs, which undergo several biochemical changes in order to make them fit to be used in human transplantations. Porcine hearts are preferred for this because pigs have the heart most similar to the human heart and are hence the best anatomical fit.
