This guide is intended as a resource for individuals and organizations involved in the development, production, delivery, and regulation of tissue engineered medical products (TEMPs) intended for use in the surgical repair, replacement, and/or reconstruction of heart valves.

There is currently no standard for tissue-engineered heart valves.
