Abstract
Previous studies have proved that posttransplant cardiac rejection is associated with changes in endomyocardial electrical impedance in humans. The aim of this study is to develop a safe transoesophageal system able to measure cardiac electrical impedance in transplanted patients and to evaluate the capability of this technique to detect heart graft rejection in humans in order to reduce the number of repetitive biopsies. The impedance measurement is performed using a four wire configuration. We...
