Early reperfusion hemodynamics predict recovery in rat hearts: a potential approach towards evaluating cardiac grafts from non-heart-beating donors

Dornbierer, Monika ; Stadelmann, Mathieu ; Sourdon, Joevin ; Gahl, Brigitta ; Cook, Stéphane ; Carrel, Thierry P. ; Tevaearai, Hendrik T. ; Longnus, Sarah L.

Aims: Cardiac grafts from non-heartbeating donors (NHBDs) could significantly increase organ availability and reduce waiting-list mortality. Reluctance to exploit hearts from NHBDs arises from obligatory delays in procurement leading to periods of warm ischemia and possible subsequent contractile dysfunction. Means for early prediction of graft suitability prior to transplantation are thus...

Different vascular smooth muscle cell apoptosis in the human internal mammary artery and the saphenous vein: implications for bypass graft disease

Frischknecht, Karin ; Greutert, Helen ; Weisshaupt, Christian ; Kaspar, Mathias ; Yang, Zhihong ; Lüscher, Thomas F. ; Carrel, Thierry P. ; Tanner, Felix C.

In: Journal of Vascular Research, 2006, vol. 43, no. 4, p. 338-346

The remarkable patency of internal mammary artery (MA) grafts compared to saphenous vein (SV) grafts has been related to different biological properties of the two blood vessels. We examined whether proliferation and apoptosis of vascular smooth muscle cells (VSMC) from human coronary artery bypass vessels differ according to patency rates. Methods and Results: Proliferation rates to serum...
