Washington
For the first time in the world, doctors have transplanted a pig’s heart as a last-ditch effort to save a human life at a US hospital in Maryland. The hospital said on Monday that the patient who received this pig heart is feeling very well after 3 days of this amazing surgery. Even after this success, it is still too early to say whether it will work or not.

With this operation, doctors have taken a step forward in the long-running effort to transplant animal organs inside humans. Doctors at the Maryland Medical Center said the transplant showed that a genetically modified animal’s heart could function in a human’s body, without being immediately ruled out. The name of this patient is David Bennett and his age is 57 years.

Doctors had no other way to save life
Patient David is told that a pig’s heart has been implanted in him. His son told that the father knows that there is no guarantee that this experiment will be successful but the doctors had no other way to save his life. Bennett had said a day before this surgery, ‘It is either a matter of death or a transplant. I want to stay alive I know it is like shooting an arrow in the dark, but it is my last option.

There is an acute shortage of human organs for transplantation in the world. For this reason, scientists are now trying to use animal parts. Last year alone, 3800 heart transplants were done in the US, which is a record in itself. “If it works, it will allow a steady supply of organs for patients who are sick,” says Dr. Mohammad Mohiuddin, a specialist in animal-to-human transplant at the Maryland Center.
