In recent years, most of the artificial heart valves are imported from Europe and the United States. The rapid development of science and technology, especially in biomedical materials and tissue engineering science, provide new opportunities for the development and clinical application of domestic artificial heart valves. This article compared the structural and functional characteristics of existing different kinds of heart valves, and dwelled on their biological evaluation to provide data support for the research, development or improvement of domestic artificial heart valves.
