Best Answer

If a mammalian heart is removed, it will continue to beat for hours, providing that an adequate supply of warm oxygenated fluid of sutable composition is supplied to the muscle through the coronary vessels from the aorta. The origin of the heart-beat is independent from the rest of the body. The heart has its own pacemaker cells.
