OBJECTIVES Cardiovascular implants of fresh autologous pericardium produced mixed results including fibrosis with retraction or thinning and dilatation. The reasons for these differences are unknown but may involve activation of cells intrinsic to the tissue implant. To better understand the behavior of autologous pericardial implants, we studied the outcomes of vital pericardium (fresh) versus ethanol-killed pericardium. METHODS Fresh and ethanol-killed autologous pericardium was… CONTINUE READING
