Is it possible to transplant a healthy artery from one person to replace a damaged artery in another person? My father currently suffers from Congenital Heart Disease. Both of his Corroded arteries are blocked...one at 50 % and one at 100%. He is also considered obviously a high risk patient when it comes to surgery. They are looking at trying to correct the problem with the artery that is 50% blocked but will not do anything with the other...risk of clots or something. I wanted to know, if blood type and whatever else is needed matched, that the surgeons could remove some of my Femoral artery to completely replace his blocked Corroded? Thank you.
