New medical device keeping transplant hearts alive longer at IU Health

INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. — A new medical device is keeping hearts used in transplants alive longer. The device is called a “Heart-in-a-Box” and it’s on clinical trial at IU Health Methodist Hospital.

Since the first heart transplant, getting the heart from one place to another was done by keeping the heart cold.
