A 56-year-old man was having heart failure and underwent a heart transplant, but the donor's heart was too small for the recipient. After a 7-hour surgery, the small donor heart was tucked in between the man's right lung and his original heart.

Cardiologist Dr. Joel Kahn explains this procedure has only been performed 150 times. He explains a pacemaker was also used to make the hearts beat in unison.

Dr. Kahn says one patient who had this type of procedure done has survived for 20 years.
