For the first time, American doctors have successfully transplanted two pig kidneys to a person at once, writes the American Journal of Transplantation.

The source noted that the operation was performed on a patient diagnosed with brain death, who was connected to a life support machine.  Истoчник Earlier, American surgeons performed a kidney transplant operation grown in the body of a genetically modified pig. < /p> Rejection of the organ did not occur due to a special genetic modification of tissues.
