The heart is a muscular organ in most animals, which pumps blood through the blood vessels of the circulatory system. Blood provides the body with oxygen and nutrients, as well as assists in the removal of metabolic wastes. In humans, the heart is located between the lungs, in the middle compartment of the chest.

Pig hearts can be soaked and cleansed until you're left with a protein scaffold. This is injected with bone marrow stem cells and placed in a bioreactor until it can be used as a functioning human heart! The process is termed decellurization and someone in need only needs to inject the heart with their stem cells so their body won't reject it
