US Surgeons Put Pig Heart in Human


Doctors are cautiously celebrating a medical first. 

  • Surgeons transplanted a pig heart into a patient in a last-ditch effort to save his life. A Maryland hospital said today that the patient is doing well three days after the highly experimental surgery although it’s too soon to know if the operation really will work. 
  • The patient said, “It was either die or do this transplant. I want to live. I know it’s a shot in the dark, but it’s my last choice.”
  • Would you take a pig heart if it was your last shot to live?
