1Department of Cardiovascular Surgery, Toho University, Sakura Medical Center, Sakura-City, Japan
Cryopreservation technology is used in some places of biomedical area. As a cardiac surgeon, I have seen for a long time that cryopreservation technology is used in the most serious condition patients in our field. That is the infectious disease of cardiac valves, especially infection of artificial valve and graft. In this lecture I will show why cryopreservation has an important role in this particular area, and that procedure how the cryopreservation valve is used. Also I will discuss some storage issues to be invented.
