I'll assume you meant cryo not crypto, but IMO the research is well done and there is no real reason to go forward with it further because its established. The reason why there isn't more of it done is the same reason there isn't really more of The Ross done. In short, if everyone wanted it there is a shortage of materials (and properly sized optimal materials) and a shortage of trained practitioners.why there isn't more research done / papers on crypto preserved homografts?
CryoLife are doing their bit to fill this need with fresh human tissue materials. But this begs a few "supply" questions (like who and from where (I'm betting ethically sourced from India or China or ...)). This is a bit opaque, but there are "other problems" (alternative view)that need to be solved too.
Thus manufactured prostheses are still an advantage.
Try reading through this little analysis I wrote some time back and swap out in your head "ross" for "homograft".
