Fiona Coote celebrates life 30 years since her first heart transplant

Fiona Coote celebrates life 30 years since her first heart transplant:

The director of heart-lung surgery and transplantation at St Vincent’s Hospital, Phillip Spratt, says technological advances in artificial heart pumps will make transplant surgery redundant.
