Recall that OSUN DEFENDER reported earlier this year that
“David Bennett, 57, is the first man to receive animal (pig) heart transplant shortly after the success of the operation on January 7, 2022.

Bennette passed away on March 8, as the University of Maryland Medical System which carried out the surgery disclosed on Wednesday.

“His condition began deteriorating several days ago. After it became clear that he would not recover, he was given compassionate palliative care. He was able to communicate with his family during his final hours,” the statement said.

The procedure raised hopes that advances in cross-species organ donation could one day solve the chronic shortage of human organs available for donation, and the team behind the operation say they still remain optimistic about its future success.
