My inbox is getting lots of excellent patient questions about the durability of next-generation biological heart valve replacements. As you may know… During the past 10 years, biological heart valves, also known as tissue valves, have benefitted from a series of design innovations.

To learn how these medical and technological advances have impacted the durability of biological heart valve replacements, I just interviewed Dr. Ibrahim Sultan, the Surgical Director of the Center for Heart Valve Disease at UPMC in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.
