decellularized "Ghost" Heart  The cells are removed by a chemical process, leaving only Extracellular matrix, so the new cells of the transplantee, which match the DNA, can be grown on this heart, so the rejection of the organ doesn't happen.

This is a “ghost organ.” It has been decelluralized, leaving only connective tissue. The organ can then be reseeded with a patient’s own cells to regenerate it so it can be transplanted without fear of tissue rejection. This is experimental.
