Cryobanking Could Solve the Transplant Organ Shortage
What's the one medical condition most likely to kill you? If you follow statistics, you'd probably say heart disease. Each year, more than a million Americans have a heart attack. And about one in four deaths in the U.S. is due to the condition. Though heart disease tops most "causes of death" lists, far more Americans die due to the transplant organ shortage. And heart transplants could prevent most cardiac arrest deaths. Even the best preservation technologies can’t stop organs from deteriorating within hours after removal. And the whole transplant process takes time.
