The transplanting of hearts that have naturally stopped beating in donors -- which are called DCD hearts, for "donors after circulatory death" -- is already the subject of research internationally, said Dr. Joseph Woo, a cardiothoracic surgeon at Stanford Health Care and chairman of cardiothoracic surgery at Stanford Medicine in Palo Alto, California.
Stanford researchers have been studying the process in human DCD hearts, and researchers elsewhere are studying it in pigs and other animals, he said.
Transplants involving other DCD organs such as kidneys, livers and lungs are already widely accepted, he said.
Woo said the number of heart transplants in the United States has remained at around 2,000 for years, limited by the number of viable donors. New methods like the one performed successfully in Australia may help save more lives.
"The thinking is if you change the way that families are able to permit donation, that you might have more donors," he said.

Joseph Woo, MD, a nationally recognized heart surgeon and leading researcher in new approaches to cardiovascular care, is the new chair of Stanford's Department of Cardiothoracic Surgery.
As a surgeon who performed 350 to 400 heart surgeries a year, Woo pioneered multiple innovative procedures including minimally invasive techniques for mitral and aortic valve repair and reconstruction, and new methods of treating complex thoracic aortic disease. At Stanford, he plans to lead exploration of the newest techniques and devices for heart care, such as new approaches to repairing versus replacing valves; smaller, more efficient mechanical heart pumps; and operations performed without stopping the heart.
"There is a rich legacy at Stanford for developing pioneering techniques for transplantation and the treatment of thoracic aortic disease," says Woo, who plans to continue this tradition by furthering basic research in the lab and bringing basic science discoveries into use in clinical trials. "It is truly a privilege to become a part of this amazingly prestigious, world-renowned academic institution."
As professor of surgery at the University of Pennsylvania, Woo ran several clinical trials involving the translational use of stem cells for treatment of heart disease, and says he hopes to see Stanford's participation in clinical trials increase at the national level.
Better access to care
Woo is equally intent on improving the ease and expediency of access to Stanford. To that end, referring physicians can now call a dedicated phone number, 650.492.3175, and immediately discuss a patient's case with a Stanford faculty surgeon (24/7). "We are absolutely committed to maintaining very frequent and open communication with our referring physicians to ensure that they are closely involved in all of the key decision-making in the care of their patients," says Woo.

Dr Joseph Woo
Joseph Woo Joseph Woo received his undergraduate degree from the M.I.T. and his M.D. from the University of Pennsylvania where he was a member of the AOA Honor Society and was awarded the I.S. Ravdin prize in Surgery as the top Penn student. Dr. Woo conducted his general surgery and cardiothoracic residencies at Penn, during which he won several teaching awards as well as the Surgical Scholar Award for scoring 99th percentile on the American Board of Surgery In-Training Exam. Dr. Woo also completed a two year post-doctoral basic science research fellowship with H. Lee Sweeney, Ph.D. studying cardiac gene transfer and novel strategies of attenuating myocardial ischemia.
For his research, Dr. Woo was awarded the American Heart Association Vivien Thomas Young Investigator Award.
Dr. Woo joined the faculty at Penn as Assistant Professor of Surgery and Director of the Minimally Invasive and Robotic Cardiac Surgery Program. Dr. Woo performed the world's first robotic aortic valve procedure. Other areas of expertise include: off-pump coronary artery bypass, complex mitral valve repair, VAD implantation, and transplantation. Dr. Woo was also appointed Associate Surgical Director of Thoracic Transplantation. Dr. Woo has served as P.I. on multiple clinical trials as well as a translational study of implantation of a tissue engineered angiogenic cell sheet onto ischemic, non-graftable myocardium at the time of CABG.
Dr. Woo currently heads a NIH R01-funded basic science research laboratory studying angiogenic, myocardial regeneration, and tissue engineering strategies for the treatment of heart failure. Dr. Woo has published several papers describing novel treatments for myocardial ischemia and heart failure and currently has 70 original peer-reviewed clinical and basic science publications. Dr. Woo has served as a guest editor for Seminars in Thoracic and Cardiovascular Surgery and as a reviewer for JCI, JTCVS, ATS, and JMCC.
