In this, tissues of the same persons is used to make a valve or a valve itself is used e.g. pulmonary valve of a patient is taken and placed on the diseased aortic valve and the valve structure prepared from the pericardium is placed as pulmonary valve. (Ross procedure) 

Allograft :

A valve taken from a dead human after processing is used for replacing the diseased valve of another human being (tissue of
one species used for another of the same species).
