Over a decade, cardiac defect plays a vital role in young adults on frequent basis. The major cause is due to thrombosis, calcification, stress induced and deposition of fats on the aortic valves. The occurrence of defect is mainly on aortic and bicuspid valves as it blocks the blood flow from heart to other parts of the body. To remove the blocks arising from these valves, prosthetic valve replacement had born to become a saviour. At first, the prosthetic valves were designed mechanically or biologically to overcome this defects. However, such valves lead to patient risks, including thrombosis, coagulation, reduced flexibility due to hydrolysis reaction and limited valve durability. To resolve that polymeric heart valves are stepped in to healthcare with a better resolution. These polymeric heart valves are designed with simple technique on having di-isocyanate and diol as a major product with additives that runs as a catalyst. In our project, Polyurethane based material is preferred to design a polymeric heart valves. These polyurethane based polymeric heart valves have good hemodynamic performance, improved biocompatibility and biostability good durability with fatigue stress resistance and cost effective.
