decellularized "Ghost" Heart The cells are removed by a chemical process, leaving only Extracellular matrix, so the new cells of the transplantee, which match the DNA, can be grown on this heart, so the rejection of the organ doesn't happen. It's still in the experimental stage, but it is promising.
Cardiac tamponade occurs when fluid [blood] builds up in the pericardial sac (the sac that surrounds the heart.) This fluid compresses the heart. Enough blood cannot be pumped in and out of the heart - this decreases the cardiac output, causing one million problems. This is a life-threatening condition. Signs & Symptoms -BP decreases, because you are hemorrhaging; CVP [pressure inside the heart] increases, because blood is squeezing the heart; heart sounds are distant and muffled [all th
