Two 29-year-old patients from Michigan and Illinois received back-to-back triple-organ transplants to replace their failing hearts, livers and kidneys. The two surgeries lasted more than 17 and 20 hours each. This marked the first time a U.S. hospital has ever performed more than one of these complex procedures within one year, much less within 27 hours.
