Pig heart implanted into human patient in ‘watershed’ US surgery

TRT World says In a medical first, doctors in United States have transplanted a pig heart into a patient in a last-ditch effort to save his life and a Maryland hospital said that he’s doing well three days after the highly experimental surgery.Sci

Doctors at the University of Maryland Medical Center said on Monday the transplant showed that a heart from a genetically modified animal can function in the human body without immediate rejection.

The patient, David Bennett, 57, knew there was no guarantee the experiment would work but he was dying, ineligible for a human heart transplant and had no other option, his son told The Associated Press.
