There are plenty of accounts of very remarkable transplants. Despite the obstacles, there have still been monumental achievements in transplant procedures that are worth noting and still plenty more anticipated triumphs in the future.

Thank Science for the advances in medicine that save millions of people each and every day. When all we had for healing was "god" or some other mythical being, most people never survived past thirty.

Really interesting article. I'm against xenotransplantation, animals suffer enough as it is to add breeding them for organ harvesting.

Fascinating. I have met a man who had a total heart transplant as well as a transplant of a pig heart valve. I also have a friend who is one of the first recipients of islet cell transplants for juvenile diabetes and she no longer has to take insulin. I am intrigued by the regenerative power of the liver, and had not heard of a lung transplant before. I did see a documentary about a face transplant. What was most interesting though is that even though the first penis transplant was successful it was reversed soon afterwards because of psychological consequences in the man who received it (and his partner). That makes me wonder if sexual hang-ups get in the way of progress.
