Pig kidney transplanted to woman on the brink of death

NY – The doctors have pig kidney transplanted to New Jersey woman who was on the verge of death, in a pair of dramatic operations in which his failing heart was also stabilized.

The combination of heart and kidney failure meant that Lisa Pisano she was too sick to tolerate a traditional transplant and had no options left. The doctors of NYU Langone Health hospital New York University They came up with a novel one-two punch: implant a mechanical pump to keep the heart beating and then transplant a kidney from a genetically modified pig.

Pisano is recovering well, the NYU team announced Wednesday. It is only the second case of a patient receiving a pig kidney — the first was last month at Massachusetts General Hospital — and the latest in a series of attempts to make animal-to-human transplantation a reality.
