Surgeons at the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center Presbyterian in Oakland, PA, successfully performed the first â€œbeating heartâ€ transplant operation. The patient was 47 years old and suffered with congestive heart failure.
The hospital was using a new technology manufactured by TransMedics, Inc., an Andover-based company that developed the Organ Care System, which allowed surgery to be performed while the organ continued to be â€œperfusedâ€ with its own blood supply.
TransMedics is developing similar technology for lung, liver, and kidney transplants.
