Abstract: Abstract At the turn of the twentieth century, mankind began its quest to make organ transplantation a reality. The quest began in 1905 when two scientists at the University of Chicago removed the heart from a small dog and inserted it into a larger one. What followed were several decades of research devoted to perfecting the ‘technique’ of transplanting organs into the human body. According to Dr Simon Gelman, Professor of Anesthesiology at the University of Alabama: the origin and infancy of organ transplantation were extremely difficult, accompanied by failure, frustration, and disappointment rather than success and gratification.1
