BACKGROUND Structural deterioration of allografts over time is believed to be at least partly related to an immune response mounted against human leukocyte antigen specific to the transplanted tissue. SynerGraft (SG) processing (CryoLife, Kennesaw, GA) is a technology that decellularizes an allograft leaving only connective tissue, therefore, reducing immunogenicity and potentially increasing durability of the implant. METHODS We performed a retrospective review of 163 SG patients and 124… CONTINUE READING
