Piggyback heart transplants

Filed under: — adam @ 1:47 pm

"Double hearts are a good choice for patients whose heart problems
cause extremely high blood pressure in the pulmonary artery [...] Such

a donor heart because the new one can’t adapt quickly enough to handle
the excess pressure built up in the lungs."
