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.
