Effect of Hyperkalemia and Hemolysis Caused by Hyperacute Rejection on Cardiac Function in Pig to Human Ex Vivo Xenogeneic Cardiac Perfusion Model

Abstract

BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES Hyperacute rejection (HAR) is a major obstacle to successful xenotransplantation of vascularized organs. This study was conducted to observe the effect of hemolysis of perfused human whole blood on pig heart function, and determine the major risk factors for preservation of xenoperfused cardiac function using ex-vivo pig to human… (More)
