Toward acellular xenogeneic heart valve prostheses: histological and biomechanical characterization of decellularized and enzymatically deglycosylated porcine pulmonary heart valve matrices

The use of decellularized xenogeneic heart valves might offer a solution to overcome the issue of human valve shortage. The aim of this study was to revise decellularization protocols in combination with enzymatic deglycosylation, in order to reduce the immunogenicity of porcine pulmonary heart valv...
