Man gets genetically-modified pig heart in world-first transplant
David Bennett, 57, is doing well three days after the experimental seven-hour procedure in Baltimore, doctors say.
The transplant was considered the last hope of saving Mr Bennett’s life, though it is not yet clear what his long-term chances of survival are.
"It was either die or do this transplant," Mr Bennett explained a day before the surgery. "I know it’s a shot in the dark, but it’s my last choice," he said.
