Decellularised heart valve roots offer a promising option for heart valve replacement in young patients, having the potential to remodel and repair. Replacement heart valves have to undergo billions of opening and closing cycles throughout the patient’s lifetime. Therefore, understanding the effect of cyclic loading on decellularised heart valve ro...
The aims of this study were to develop a biological large diameter vascular graft by decellularisation of native human aorta to remove the immunogenic cells whilst retaining the essential biomechanical, and biochemical properties for the ultimate benefit of patients with infected synthetic grafts. Donor aortas (n = 6) were subjected to an adaptatio...
Introduction: Decellularisation is a process used to remove cells and cellular remnants, whilst preserving the structure of the nonimmunogenic extracellular matrix. A decellularised human dermis, produced using a method of decellularisation that uses low concentration detergent and proteinase inhibitors, has been shown to be of utility in the treat...
Background and purpose of the study The use of decellularised biological heart valves in the replacement of damaged heart valves offers a promising solution to reduce the degradation issues associated with existing cryopreserved allografts. The purpose of this study was to assess the effect of low concentration sodium dodecyl sulphate decellularisa...
The aim of this study was to adapt a proprietary decellularisation process for human dermis for use with porcine skin. Porcine skin was subject to: sodium chloride (I M) to detach the epidermis, trypsin paste to remove hair follicles, peracetic acid (0.1% v/v) disinfection, washed in hypotonic buffer and 0.1% (w/v) sodium dodecyl sulphate in the pr...
The clinical use of decellularised cardiac valve allografts is increasing. Long term data will be required to determine whether they outperform conventional cryopreserved allografts. Valves decellularised using different processes may show varied long-term outcomes. It is therefore important to understand the effects of specific decellularisation t...
