This was nice until my brain came up with the question: "Where did they get a donor for a 16-month-old baby?"

Actually, for all those people saying that another child had to die in order for this baby to live, its worth mentioning that most "heart donors" are actually pigs.

trolling aside..
I hate when people do that..

If the patient dies = Doctors fault
If the patient lives = It's a miracle!

Random medical question... well really not that random because it's related to the post. How long until we can use artificial organs (Hearts, livers, kidneys, whatever) permanently? Like this thing is great but it was only until they could get a donor. When will the artificial organs REPLACE the need for a donor instead of just as a temporary fix/staller?
#192 to #191 - creepyunclebob (07/23/2013) [-]
It looks to me like we'll be able to grow real organs before we manage to make artificial ones that can hold up.
