Prosthetic heart valves are classified as either mechanical (constructed of entirely synthetic material) or biologic (human, porcine, bovine). All prosthetic valves are associated with complications ranging from structural failure and thrombosis to systemic embolization, hemolysis, and endocarditis. A paravalvular leak occurs when a portion of the prosthetic valve becomes unseated from the valve annulus. It is more common with mechanical valves.
