The first ever heart transplant with a still-beating heart from a donor who had undergone cardiac death was performed recently at Stanford Medicine. This method allows for less cardiac injury and a lower chance of morbidity for the recipient. The new method expands the donor pool for the more that 3,500 people in the US who are awaiting a heart transplant. Read the original report.
