The repercussions of the historical precedent announced by the University of Maryland a few days ago, are still a success American surgeons transplant a pig’s heart transgenic in a human patient, persists, especially as it has wide-ranging implications for organ transplant surgery.

Two options are endless

David Bennett, a 57-year-old patient with a heart condition, revealed that before the surgery he had two options, either the operation or death, adding that he knew the danger was there, but “that is, surgery” was his only option, as he put it.

He added that he was aware of the risks of the procedure, as the doctors told him all the details, explaining that he also learned from them that the surgery that would be performed on him was a new experience, according to the University of Maryland School of Medicine.

He revealed that he was admitted to the hospital weeks ago, where he was connected to a device to regulate the work of the heart and lung, after suffering from a heart rhythm disorder that threatened his life.

He also concluded his speech by saying, “I am looking forward to getting out of bed after I recover,” according to the American newspaper, “The Wall Street Journal.”

The Marylander, who was ineligible for a conventional heart transplant, will be monitored over the next days and weeks to see if the transplant is OK.

Super doctor or hero

It is noteworthy that the research of an American scientist of Pakistani origin named Dr. Mohiuddin led him to the success of this exceptional operation, according to a video clip published by the university a few days ago.

The surgery, which was based on Mohieldin, professor of surgery at the University of Maryland School of Medicine, was performed by a team of doctors headed by Bartley Griffiths, and took a full nine hours.

Mohieldin, who was described by some as a superhero or a hero, is one of the world’s leading experts in transplanting animal organs into the human body, which is called xenotransplantation, according to the University of Maryland website.

He also established a special program at the university to perform heart operations in this way in cooperation with Dr. Bartley Griffiths, who performed the last transplant.

It is noteworthy that in October last year, American surgeons transplanted, for the first time, a pig’s kidney into a human body without the recipient’s immune system rejecting the transplanted organ, a significant progress that is likely to alleviate the severe shortage of human organs ready for transplantation.
