dc.description.abstractOn October 26, 1984, Dr. Leonard L. Bailey and his associates at the Loma Linda University Medical Center in California implanted a heart from a seven- month-old baboon in a human infant born with hypoplastic left heart syndrome. Baby Fae, as the newborn child has become known in an effort to preserve anonymity, lived for twenty days with her new heart succumbing on the evening of November 15 to heart and kidney failure resulting from rejection of the foreign tissue.en
