Rare Domino Transplant Saves Two Women

This unusual procedure, known as a "domino" transplant, occurs when one recipient receives a heart-lung transplant from a deceased donor, while the existing healthy heart of the heart-lung recipient is given to a second patient. The rare procedure has only been performed eight times at Stanford, last in 1994.

Clinical Trials

Clinical trials are research studies that evaluate a new medical approach, device, drug, or other treatment. As a Stanford Health Care patient, you may have access to the latest, advanced clinical trials.

Open trials refer to studies currently accepting participants. Closed trials are not currently enrolling, but may open in the future.

You may make referrals to Stanford with confidence, knowing that your request will be handled immediately and that most of your patients will be admitted for evaluation within 24 to 48 hours.
