How does heart transplant surgery work? – Roni Shanoada



Dig into the science of how heart transplants happen, how donors are matched and find out how this complex surgery saves lives.

Your heart beats more than 100,000 times a day. In just a minute, it pumps over five liters of blood throughout your body. But unlike skin and bones, the heart has a limited ability to repair itself. So if this organ is severely damaged, there’s often only one medical solution: replacing it. Roni Shanoada explores how this complex and intricate procedure works.

Lesson by Roni Shanoada, directed by Alexia Roider, Zedem Media.
