About this video
Kevin Fong and Richard Barnett present the innovations and setbacks of human heart transplants.
Human-to-human transplants are one of the great successes of post-war surgery, but they also raise some of the most profound ethical and clinical questions in modern medicine.
Wellcome Trust Engagement Fellows Dr Kevin Fong and Dr Richard Barnett lead a panel of experts, including cardiac surgeons Sir Terence English and Francis Wells, and medical ethicist Dr Antonia Cronin, to explore the remarkable story of heart transplants, and ask: where next?
This is the first part of an Ri event that took place on 15 February 2012. Watch the debate (part two) here.
