It is keeping the blood circulating when the patient’s heart is being treatment on.

Explain the types of valves?

The valves may be repaired or replaced. The replacement heart valves are either natural or artificial. The natural valves are from human or animal donors but the artificial valves have been made from the metal.  Heart valves might get a few diseases & it cannot perform the function. While it is closed blood doesn’t move to heart’s chambers and less bloods travel to next chamber. Because of this problem, bloods might come out to lungs & body. Heart valves failure might cause you many problems affecting whole body system. Problems are stenosis (that is hardened and stiffness with the calcium deposits), regurgitation (insufficiency).
