Vladimir Demikhov (1915 - 1998) was a Soviet scientist who was the first to perform intrathoracic transplantation of the heart alone, lung alone, and the heart and lungs in a warm-blooded animal and the first to perform an experimental coronary artery bypass operation with success. He designed the first mechanical cardiac substitute and was one of the first to use the vascular stapling device in experiments. He is also well-known for his transplantation of the heads of dogs. He conducted his dog head transplants during the 1950s. Christiaan Barnard (a South African cardiac surgeon who performed the world's first successful human-to-human heart transplant) visited Demikhov in 1962 and was shown a dog in which they had performed a heterotopic thoracic heart transplantation.

Thanks to experiments like this we have such things as human organ transplants. Its cruel but I dont think its much more cruel than when people torture their pets or starve or beat them with NO GOAL.

This man is so ignorant.
This is the most stupidest thing a so called scientist can do.
He should of cut his head off and they should of put his head where his ass is. But yet, he is an ass regardless.
