Children’s heart transplant breakthrough

Recommended Posts

UK NHS doctors have reportedly become the first in the world to complete heart transplants in children using organs brought back to life by a ground-breaking machine.

Donated hearts have historically come from people who are brain-dead but whose hearts are still beating, which limits the scope for the number of transplants possible.

But the Sunday Times says surgeons from the Royal Papworth Hospital in Cambridgeshire have been able to make hearts start beating again after they had stopped, and successfully transplanted them into children.
