The Dead Heart Transplant?

Uluru, also known as Ayers Rock,pictured in the dead heart of Oz.
I think it is ironic that the dead heart transplant was pioneered in Australia, because in Oz "the Dead Heart" means the remote interior of Australia, like where the world's biggest rock resides  

( kind of looks like a heart from the air, too)...
and the ROCK band "Midnight Oil" have a song that was released in '86 titled "The Dead Heart" (to 86 something is slang for killing it).
 There is even a heart shaped cave in the side of Uluru itself.

Also David Leser, who I wrote about in the post below this one,
To Begin to Know...
was school friends with the drummer of "Midnight Oil".
David even auditioned as lead singer, but lost out to Peter Garrett.

" Doctors in Australia say they have performed the world's first heart transplant involving a technically "dead" donor whose heart had already stopped beating.
Before now, donor hearts have been taken from people declared brain dead but whose hearts were still beating. 
Doctors at St. Vincent Hospital in Sydney say their procedure involved a heart that had ceased to beat for as much as 20 minutes but was revived by being placed inside a machine dubbed a "heart-in-a-box." 
In the machine jointly developed by the hospital and the Victor Chang Cardiac Research Institute, the donor heart is kept warm in a nourishing fluid meant to reduce damage to the muscle while the heartbeat is restored electronically.

Never realised Uluru looks like a heart. Medicine moves on - I wonder what dead part next?
