Many heart transplant treatments have been done so far. But what happened now is the first time in the world. An AIDS patient was given a heart transplant in America. It was also the heart of another AIDS patient. The heart transplant was successful. The details of that patient were kept confidential by the doctors. She is said to be sixty years old and has been suffering from AIDS for many years. She had a heart problem. A donor was sought after needing a transplant. At the same time, the details of the brain dead person in another hospital were sent. But that person was also found to have AIDS. However, the heart was found to be healthy. Immediately it was implanted in the female patient.
They struggled for about four hours for that operation. Doctors described this organ donation as a milestone in history. He said that people suffering from AIDS are also eligible for organ donation if the disease is well controlled. The female patient recovered well five weeks after the heart transplant. Doctors are planning to discharge her as she recovers well. In 2013, the US HIV Organ Policy Equity Act made it clear that AIDS patients could also donate organs to another AIDS patient. But so far not a single such case has come to the attention of the doctors. After almost ten years, now the result of making that law has been seen.
