Title (EN) FROZEN VIABLE SOLID ORGANS AND METHOD FOR FREEZING SAME
(FR) ORGANES SOLIDES VIABLES CONGELÉS ET PROCÉDÉ DE CONGÉLATION DE CEUX-CI
Abstract: front page image
(EN)Disclosed is a method of freezing bulky biological material, comprising transferring heat out of said material to cool the material and increasing the rate of heat transfer during a time period when the inner portion of said biological material freezes and releases latent heat. This method allows prolonged ex-vivo preservation of solid mammalian organs, including a liver or significant portion thereof and a heart. The invention also provides a bank of deposited body organs or tissues as well as methods for operating such a bank.
(FR)L'invention concerne un procédé destiné à congeler une matière biologique volumineuse et consistant à transférer la chaleur à l'extérieur de cette matière afin de la refroidir et à augmenter la vitesse de transfert de chaleur pendant que la partie intérieure de cette matière biologique se congèle et libère la chaleur latente. Ce procédé permet une conservation ex vivo prolongée d'organes de mammifères solides, tels qu'un foie ou une partie importante de celui-ci et un coeur. L'invention concerne également une banque d'organes ou de tissus déposés ainsi que des procédés de mise en oeuvre de cette banque.
