(Worthy News) – In a medical first, surgeons at the University of Maryland Medical Center transplanted a pig heart into a human patient, reporting three days later that he is doing well, the University of Maryland School of Medicine announced in a press release Monday.
The patient, 57-year-old David Bennett, will be monitored over the coming weeks to see if the transplant provides “lifesaving benefits,” according to the statement.
The highly experimental surgery was the patient’s last chance to live, as he suffered from terminal heart disease and did not qualify for a human heart transplant. [ Source: Washington Examiner (Read More…) ]
