A device that can extend the time between organ donation and transplant from four hours to more than 12 hours has been created by scientists in Sweden. This implies that donated organs can now be brought to patients who are farther away. Thus, can pave a way to a borderless network of organ donation. The conventional methods of a heart transplant needs four hours from the removal [...]
