A Gross Comparative Anatomical Study of Hearts in Human Cadavers and Pigs
The present study suggests that the morphology of human and porcine heart is almost similar with significant anatomical differences between porcine and human hearts that might effect the success of the cardiac xenograft within the human recipient.
