I’ve seen this photograph very frequently on tumblr and Facebook, always with the simple caption, “Ghost Heart”. What exactly is a ghost heart?
More than 3,200 people are on the waiting list for a heart transplant in the United States. Some won’t survive the wait. Last year, 340 died before a new heart was found.
The solution: Take a pig heart, soak it in an ingredient commonly found in shampoo and wash away the cells until you’re left with a protein scaffold that is to a heart what two-by-four framing is to a house.
Then inject that ghost heart, as it’s called, with hundreds of millions of blood or bone-marrow stem cells from a person who needs a heart transplant, place it in a bioreactor - a box with artificial lungs and tubes that pump oxygen and blood into it - and wait as the ghost heart begins to mature into a new, beating human heart.
Doris Taylor, director of regenerative medicine research at the Texas Heart Institute at St. Luke’s Episcopal Hospital in Houston, has been working on this— first using rat hearts, then pig hearts and human hearts - for years.
The process is called decellularization and it is a tissue engineering technique designed to strip out the cells from a donor organ, leaving nothing but connective tissue that used to hold the cells in place.
This scaffold of connective tissue - called a “ghost organ” for its pale and almost translucent appearance - can then be reseeded with a patient’s own cells, with the goal of regenerating an organ that can be transplanted into the patient without fear of tissue rejection.
This ghost heart is ready to be injected with a transplant recipient’s stem cells so a new heart - one that won’t be rejected - can be grown.
Excuse me but we can’t just kill pigs to save human lives. That is wrong.
Found the vegan
A surgeon actually recreated this device that pumps blood without a beat.
If I could be bothered, I’d find the source. It’s literally just a pump. No pulse can be felt, and no beat is heard.
One man actually was able to live with it, but eventually died.
That would be much better than killing pigs.
I’m not a vegan or vegetarian, but I think it’s a better alternative.
Only downside is no one can tell if you’re dead or alive…
Oh god that’d be so badass to not have a heartbeat #coldasfuckbrvh
…if we kill pigs anyway for food, why don’t we use all parts like they used to back in the day.
HOLY SHIT THIS WAS MY FUCKING IDEA I ASKED MY MOM IF I COULD DO THIS LIKE MONTHS AGO AND SHE WAS LIKE NO WOW MOM
