6th Heart Transplant a Success

The sixth Israeli heart transplant operation was conducted Monday night at Jerusalem’s Hadassah University Hospital at Ein Kerem.

The patient, 57-year-old Yaacov Gross of Rishon le-Zion, a mortgage bank branch manager, had been in cardiology treatment for the last year.

The heart was taken from a young man who was killed early Monday morning in a car accident in the coastal area. It was brought to Jerusalem in the evening after the blood types of the deceased and Gross were found to match.
