Doctors perform world-first transplant of DEAD hearts into patients in breakthrough that will save thousands of patients' lives



Australian doctors have successfully brought three dead hearts back to life and transplanted them into patients in a wold-first operation. The doctors at St Vincent's Hospital in Sydney used a preservation solution developed by the Victor Chang Cardiac Research Institute to transplant the organs into 57-year-old Michelle Gribilas, 44-year-old Jan Damen (pictured right with his wife Silvana) and a third patient still in recovery. Pictured left is the ground-breaking heart-resuscitation console and preservation solution.
