Bioprosthetic heart valves are valve replacements constructed from animal tissue. They are deformable and offer similar mechanical properties to their native counterpart. While tearing of these valves is frequently observed, it is still not fully understood, but may be the result of high induced bending and shear stresses in the valve leaflets[1].
