The authors present insights on myocardial preservation for heart transplantation in Great Britain. Topics discussed include the demand for heart transplantation in Great Britain, the history of donation after circulatory determined death heart transplantation, and abdominal donation after circulatory determined death organ transplantation. Also mentioned is the clinical donation after circulatory determined death heart transplantation.
