Doctors bring a dead heart ‘back to life’ for groundbreaking transplant

But donation after circulatory death "occurs after the heart has stopped beating and the person's death has been declared".
"It's a monumental leap forward in transplantation", Bryan Whitson, MD, cardiothoracic surgeon and director of the Collaboration for Organ Perfusion, Protection, Engineering and Regeneration (COPPER) at The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center, tells Yahoo Lifestyle, noting that centers that have expertise in this area, like Duke University Hospital, are leading the way.
In 2018, 3,400 coronary heart transplants had been performed in some unspecified time in the future of the US.
As for the veteran who received the heart, the hospital says he's recovering well. "If @RoyalPapworth's experience (approx 75 DCD heart transplants to date) has shown us anything, this will decrease waitlist time, deaths on the waitlist, with excellent survival results", he added. The introduction of hearts ito this list will change the lives of many people waiting for a transplant.
The transplant wait list in the USA is over 100,000 people long, and 20 die every day waiting for new organs.
Many organs are too damaged or in poor conditions that render them unusable. Aside from death, a donor's family history is also considered.
In an effort to handle this, docs are continuously engaged on new methods to broaden the donor pool.
"This procedure has the potential to expand the donor pool by up to 30 percent", Jacob Schroder, M.D., the doctor at Duke who performed the procedure, explains.
