The first mechanical heart valve prosthesis designed by Dr Charles Hufnagel was implanted to the descending aorta of a 30 year old woman with severe aortic regurgitation in 1952(1). Eight years after the initial succesful prosthetic valve implantation, Dr Harken sutured a prosthetic valve (Starr Edwards Valve) to the aortic anulus after removing the diseased native valve. During the ensuing years different types of valves made from pyrolytic carbon were tried. Though successfully remedied the aortic valve disease, mechanical prosthesis required lifelong anticoagulation resulting in high rates of bleeding and thrombosis complications.
