There has been a trend toward more frequent use of bioprosthetic valve, especially in the young generations, over the last decade.(1,2) From the Society of Thoracic Surgeons database, the use of bioprosthetic valve has increased from 44% in 1996 to 78% in 2006 in North America.(1) Freedom from warfarin, restrictions on diet and activities makes bioprosthetic valves more attractive and popular, and multiple reports have shown that choosing bioprosthetic valve does not decrease survival despite the increased rate of reoperation.(3,4.)
