A man who received a human heart after living for 11 days with a Penn State artificial device has an inflamed pancreas, a potentially fatal condition, a spokesman said at Milton S. Hershey Medical Center in Hershey, Pa. Anthony Mandia, 44, who underwent his heart transplant Monday, was listed in critical condition and was downgraded to unstable. "It's very serious; it's unexpected," Dr. John W. Burnside said of the potentially fatal pancreatitis. Doctors are not sure why the condition developed.
