ABSTRACT
The preservation of donor heart is the important problem of the transplantation and cardiac surgery. Despite the progress made, the need for further research on this issue is substantial. This review highlights the latest progress in terms of donor heart preservation and provides a focus for the development of heart preservation techniques. This review gives an overview of new preservation solutions and provides a focus for optimization of the composition of existing preservation solutions. Such methods of donor heart preservation as continuous perfusion, preservation at subzero temperature, and oxygen persufflation are also discussed.
