    IN THE LAST MOMENT THE DOCTOR OPERATING SAID NO TO A SECOND CAMERATEAM BECOUSE OF NOT SO MUCH SPACE IN THE OPERATION THEATHRE... THE ORF TEAM FILMED MORE AND GAVE ME THIS MATERIAL.

    THE FIRST CALF ESMARALDA SHOULD HAVE BEEN OPERATED YESTERDAY BACK TO THE NORMAL HEARTFUNCTION (IT IS NOW 9 WEEKS WITH THE ARTIFICIAL HEART_____ AMERICAN DOCTORS CAME ONLY TO 26 days) BUT THE BLOOD WHICH HAVE TO BE PREPAIRED BEFORE OPERATING WAS NOT IN THE CONDITION WANTED, ESMARLDA WILL BE OPERATED SOMETIMES NEXT WEEK. WITH MEDICAMENTE THE BLOOD IS PREPAIRED TO BE VERY THIN SO THAT WHEN THE OWN HEART WHICH IS STILL INSIDE THE BODY TAKES OVER THE FUNCTION NO EMBOLIE HAPPEN!
    yesterday the second calf francesca was operated in the same way as esmiralda 9 weeks ago- this sort of operations are some of the most difficult in this field. the artificial heart was developed by Prof. Navratil at the 2nd university clinikgin Vienna. The idea of this sort of experiments is to learn about the problems and for how long it is possible that an artificial heart can take over the function of a sick heart during this time the sick heart should to be cured if possible.

    THE OPERATION TOOK 6 hours, till the art.heart is switched on the normal heart has continue to work. the operation was a success and also this calf should go through a longtime test.
