  • Rejection
  • and learn the signs of heart transplant rejection and infection. (nih.gov)
  • For the first three months after leaving the hospital, you will return often for tests to check for infection or rejection of your new heart, to test your heart function, and to make sure that you are recovering well. (nih.gov)
  • Unlike traditional transplant options, recellularized hearts are less immunogenic and have a decreased risk of rejection. (wikipedia.org)
  • contraction
  • These generate a current that causes contraction of the heart, traveling through the atrioventricular node and along the conduction system of the heart. (wikipedia.org)
  • The heart models showed a unified contraction with a force equivalent to ~2% of a normal rat heart or ~25% of that of a 16-week-old human heart. (wikipedia.org)

  • oxygen
  • A heart attack happens when the flow of oxygen-rich blood to a section of heart muscle suddenly becomes blocked and the heart can't get oxygen. (nih.gov)

  • Severely narrowed arteries may allow enough blood to reach the heart when the demand for oxygen is low, such as when you're sitting. (heart.org)
