Phoenix Children's Hospital Last Month Performed Heart Transplant of Youngest Recipient

Five-week-old Oliver became one of the youngest heart transplant recipients at Phoenix Children's Hospital last month, said doctors. Caylyn Otto, Oliver's mother, said they never imagined that their baby will be able to survive after birth. But now as doctors have said the baby is doing well, she can start planning her son's future, she said.

Otto said doctors at 20th week of her pregnancy noted that Oliver's heart was significantly enlarged. And after a month, the baby's heart grew even bigger, said doctors.
