Power and direction of correlation between the signs were determined by Pearson correlation coefficient (r) and Spearman rank correlation, if distribution of the baseline data was not normal. The values of these tests range from -1 to +1. The extreme values are observed in signs associated with linear functional relation. The significance of selected correlation coefficient is assessed by statistics value r* n − 2 / 1 − r 2 = ta,f (1). e. possibility of correlation coefficient difference from zero depending on r and sample size n.

Structural failure of bioprostheses are strongly related to the patient’s age at valve insertion (Akins, 1998). Bioprostheses have a significantly higher rate of reoperation. Freedom from reoperation for bioprostheses is >95% at 5 years, >90% at 10 years, but <70% at 15 years. However freedom from reoperation for mechanical valves is >95% at 5 years and >90% at 15 years (Desai, 2008). Many cardiac surgeons opt patient age 70 years or older as a routine age for insertion of bioprostheses. Several studies have compared stentless and stented aortic valve bioprosthesis.

Althougt there is no consensus about the influence of the pregnancy on biological valve degeneration, this possibility has to be told to the potential pregnant patient. The reason is that re-replacement is needed for the patients with degenerated biological valves. Especially the risks of such operations during pregnancy in terms of maternal and fetal prognosis has to be denoted.
