From Mr. T’s donated organs, the Vietnam National Coordination Center for Human Organ Transplantation (NHOT) has distributed his organs. His heart was transferred to Hue Central Hospital for a transplant for a patient with dilated cardiomyopathy – heart failure for 13 years. That humanitarian action has continued to make a miracle of another successful heart transplant from Hanoi to Hue.
