Case description

In order to impede CP washout during Heart Harvest we introduce you first Azygus ligation technique during heart harvest for better heart protection. Azygous ligation in heart harvest refers to the surgical procedure where the azygous vein, a large vein that carries deoxygenated blood from the chest and abdominal wall to the superior vena cava, is ligated or tied off. This is often done during heart transplantation surgery to ensure proper blood flow and to facilitate the removal of the heart from the donor's body. It's a critical step in the organ transplant process to ensure that blood flow is directed appropriately to the transplanted heart.
