‘Dead’ hearts transplant done in surgical breakthrough

(AFP) / 24 October 2014

So far three people have received hearts in this way, with two recovering well and the third and most recent recipient still requiring intensive care. 

Sydney: Australian surgeons said on Friday they have used hearts which had stopped beating in successful transplants, in a world first they said could change the way organs are donated.
Until now, doctors have relied on using the still-beating hearts of donors who have been declared brain dead, often placing the recovered organs on ice and rushing them to their recipients.
But Sydney’s St Vincent’s Hospital and the Victor Chang Cardiac Research Institute have developed a technique which means hearts which had been still for 20 minutes can be resuscitated and transplanted into a patient.

Beijing: China and 21 other Asian nations signed on Friday to a new Beijing-backed international bank for Asia that Washington opposes as an unnecessary rival to established institutions such as the World Bank.
Representatives of the 22 nations signed a memorandum of understanding at the Great Hall of the People in the heart of Beijing to establish the Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank.
