Stock Photo - 22 April 2021, Saxony, Leipzig: Diyar Saeed (centre right), head of the heart transplant programme, and Marcel Vollroth (l), senior physician paediatric cardiac surgery, explain something on the screen during a follow-up examination of twins Jamie (in the foreground) and Kilian at Herzzentrum Leipzig. The two doctors transplanted new hearts into the identical twins three days apart on February 21 and 24. Both boys were diagnosed with a genetic defect in the summer of 2020: DMC, dilated cardiomyopathy. In this case, a change in the heart muscle and the interspersion with scar tissue cause the heart cavities to dilate. The result is a reduction in the efficiency of the heart.
