Blood group incompatibility and accelerated homograft fibrocalcifications

Cryopreserved valved homograft has become the conduit of choice for right ventricular outflow tract reconstruction in pediatric cardiac surgery. Aortic homografts have been frequently used in pulmonary position, but accelerated aortic homograft fibrocalcification may occur. Blood group incompatibility between receiver and homograft donor may play a central role in this context.
