Growth and cell viability of aortic versus pulmonic homografts in the systemic circulation.

Abstract

Growth characteristics and cell viability of aortic and pulmonic valve homografts in the systemic circulation were compared in a growing sheep model. Seven aortic and seven pulmonic cryopreserved homografts were implanted in the descending aortae of recipient female lambs. Of seven sheep per group, three were killed at 8 months, three at 12 months, and one… (More)
