For years, researchers have used the Langendorff method to remove the heart from an animal in order to introduce fluid through the aorta, the body's largest vessel, then into the artery network of a heart.
It should be noted that although Langendorff method is an ideal experimental model utilized to assess cardiac function and metabolism ex vivo, the measurement of right ventricular function which contributed to overall cardiac function is not assessed that causes some limitations in this study.
