In this experimental study, small intestinal submucosa was implanted as an atrial prosthesis in calves. Echocardiography and histology showed this to be an impermeable prosthesis that develops a neointimal nonthrombogenic surface making it safe for repair of defects in a low-pressure system. Further study with small intestinal submucosa in an intracardiac position is warranted.
