Caption: MODEL RELEASED. World's first transplant removal. Heart surgeons Victor Tsang (right) and Sir Magdi Yacoub (left) with their transplant patient Hannah Clark (centre). These two surgeons performed the first ever removal of a transplanted heart from a patient. The transplant was originally grafted onto Hannah's own, damaged heart when she was 11 months old (in 1995). However, she developed complications due to the immunosupressants used to prevent the heart being rejected. Ultimately it was decided to remove the donor heart after her own heart had recovered some 10 years later (in 2006). Photographed in July 2009.
