Full recovery for two hearts girl (UK)

"A 16-year-old girl from Wales who made history when, as a baby, she had a donor heart grafted onto her own has made a full recovery. Doctors say Hannah Clark's own heart is now in perfect working order three-and-a-half years after her 'piggy-back' donor heart was removed. Sir Magdi Yacoub, the pioneering surgeon who performed Hannah's original transplant when she was two, said he was 'surprised and delighted'. The Lancet journal tells her story" - BBC
