Abstract

This document gives the RCP recommendations for tissue pathways applying to the following areas of cardiovascular pathology:
*endomyocardial biopsies for the assessment of pathology of the native heart
*endomyocardial biopsies for the assessment of cardiac allograft rejection
*cardiac valve specimens
*non-malignant masses removed from the heart and great vessels
*specimens of aorta and other large or medium-sized vessels
*temporal artery specimens
*pulmonary thromboendarterectomy specimens
*heart dissection – explants post cardiac transplantation
*autopsy cardiac dissection
*coronary endarterectomy specimens
