SummaryThe cryoprotective effect of sucrose has been investigated using 3 different vascular smooth muscle preparations, namely canine saphenous veins and arteries and porcine circumflex coronary arteries following storage in liquid nitrogen (at −196°C). Contractile responses to noradrenaline, 5-HT, prostaglandin F2α and KCl and relaxant responses to substance P and 5-HT were determined on fresh tissues and after cryostorage in fetal calf serum (FCS) containing either 1.8 M dimethyl sulfoxide… Expand
Functional recovery of human mesenteric and coronary arteries after cryopreservation at −196° C in a serum-free medium*
TLDR
Cryopreservation diminished contractile and endothelium-dependent relaxant responses of human arteries and neither functional nor morphologic preservation of the endothelial cell lining was significantly improved by FCS supplementation of the cryomedium. Expand
Freezing without surrounding cryomedium preserves the endothelium and its function in human internal mammary arteries.
TLDR
Freezing of human arteries at a mean cooling rate of -3 degrees C/min and storage without surrounding medium offers the prospect of optimal preservation of both smooth muscle and endothelial function in cryopreserved human IMA. Expand
Cryopreservation of vascular tissues
TLDR
Evidence from pharmacological studies suggests that cryopreservation induces tissue specific changes in transmembrane signaling and the mechanisms coupling intracellular calcium release, sensitivity and calcium entry into the smooth muscle cells. Expand
Functional assessment of human femoral arteries after cryopreservation.
TLDR
It is possible that further refinements of the cryopreservation protocol, such as a slower rate of cooling and a more controlled stepwise addition of dimethyl sulfoxide, might allow better post-thaw functional recovery of HFAs. Expand
Impact of freezing/thawing procedures on the post-thaw viability of cryopreserved human saphenous vein conduits.
TLDR
Cryopreservation allows long-term banking of viable human SV with only minor loss in contractility and attenuated post-thaw contractile responses to all tested agents markedly. Expand
Activated Rho/Rho kinase and modified calcium sensitivity in cryopreserved human saphenous veins.
TLDR
Cryopreservation modified [Ca(2+)](i) of venous smooth muscle cells (1) through depolarization-induced changes in Ca(2+) influx and (2) through activation of Rho kinase signaling pathways. Expand
Serum- and albumin-free cryopreservation of endothelial monolayers with a new solution
TLDR
The use of TiProtec or modifications thereof as base solution for cryopreservation greatly improved cryop Reservation results for endothelial monolayers in terms of survival and of monolayer and mitochondrial integrity. Expand
Function of cryopreserved arterial allografts under immunosuppressive protection with cyclosporine A.
TLDR
Arteries showed no function and loss of endothelial integrity after cryopreservation and thawing but showed 100% patency and return of functional responses resulting from repopulation of grafts by host cells after immunosuppressive treatment with cyclosporine A. Expand
Cryopreservation of human pulmonary tissues
TLDR
Cryopreservation allows storage of living cells for virtually indefinite time and has become an important tool for the storage of human vascular tissues in pharmacological research and evidence has been presented that human airway smooth muscle preparations may also be stored by this technique with a wide variety of functional activities being well preserved.

Functional studies on human veins after storage at − 190°C
TLDR
It is suggested that cryopreservation is a useful technique for storing human veins for pharmacological studies and that after thawing of frozen stored veins the contractile force development was unchanged, and the evidence suggested that the monoamine oxidase activity was unimpaired. Expand
Retention of endothelium-dependent vasodilatory responses in canine coronary arteries following cryopreservation.
TLDR
It is demonstrated that slow freezing of canine coronary arteries to -75 degrees C in Krebs-Henseleit solution containing Me2SO and FCS provides good preservation of the vascular smooth muscle function and endothelium-dependent vasodilatory responses. Expand

TLDR
The evidence suggests that after cryopreservation of human intrapulmonary arteries at −190°C, mechanisms of both contraction and relaxation are well‐maintained. Expand
Cryopreservation of innervation, endothelial and vascular smooth muscle function of a rabbit muscular and resistance artery.

Mechanism of cryoinjury in biological systems.
TLDR
The hypothesis that intracellular water remains liquidlike below 0 °C and therefore its vapor pressure is greater than that of ice, is proposed to explain the mechanism of cryoinjury and is compatible with the most important modes of freezing injury already proposed. Expand

TLDR
The usefulness of cryopreservation to store isolated human tissues for subsequent pharmacological studies is considered, offering clear potential for ensuring the supply of both vascular and non-vascular human material for pharmacological experiments. Expand
