Emergency surgery to stop bleeding near Murray P. Haydon's mechanical heart will set back his recovery only "three or four days," Dr. William C. DeVries predicted at Humana Hospital Audubon in Louisville, Ky. Haydon, 58, became the world's third permanent artificial heart recipient on Feb. 17. DeVries said that Saturday night's surgery might even have speeded Haydon's recovery because the five-day bleeding problem had slowed his recuperation.
