Well I will certainly be following this case with bated breath.

Truthfully all the questions that I have are lab and clinical data based at this point.

How much total xeno-origin tissue was used? What degree of native supporting vasculature was able to be salvaged/retained?

What is his anti-rejection therapy like? What was it like immediately pre and post transplant? What interval are they taking biopsies and what do they show?

I wish the patient and his family rest and healing, sleep that refreshes, drinks that quench thirst, nourishing meals taken with loved ones, a brighter tomorrow than the days before.
