heart valves July 25, 2008 11:57 AM

This doesn't make sense river. The heart valve, like any other part of the body must be kept alive and flourishing if it is to be used again. They are composed of living cells. This means that the valves have to be removed at the exact time of death ( or just a minute or so after) and then kept on ice until it can be used. Like a kidney or heart I would assume that there is a very short time limit that the organ/valve can be kept this way. I am not an authority in this matter but I am guessing that this is a ploy to gain sympathy, or at least cause some fluctuation in the minds of those signing petitions. But , 'if' the valve can be used then the sealers will have to be' taught' to very carefully cut the heart out before the animal is dead and then someone in authority will have to be in charge of packing them to make sure they aren't damaged. I don't believe a word she is saying. I haven't read anything about seal heart valves being used in medicine, have you?  [ send green star]  [ accepted]
