US surgeons transplant pig heart into human patient

Date: 12 January 2022 Tags: Miscellaneous
  • In a medical first, doctors transplanted a pig heart into a patient in a last-ditch effort to save his life through highly experimental surgery.
  • It marks a step in the decades-long quest to one day use animal organs for life-saving transplants.
  • The transplant showed that a heart from a genetically modified animal can function in the human body without immediate rejection.
  • The patient knew there was no guarantee the experiment would work but he was dying, ineligible for a human heart transplant and had no other option.
