Image of the Week: First U.S. heart transplant


This is a photo of the first heart transplant performed in the United States. This historic transplant, performed at Stanford in Jan. 1968, was captured in the last frame of a surgical resident's film. Norman Shumway, MD, PhD; Edward Stinson, MD; and Denver Nelson, MD; and nurse Bernadine Hartman are shown at work.
