Synopsis
Documentary that examines advances in heart operations. The program follows up on two previously broadcast segments. First, Alda returns to a M*A*S*H*-like tent where he operated on a "casualty" using a remote surgical robot. In the update, he learns about advances in the artificial heart. Next, he visits a company poised to complete the first successful implant of a totally-self-contained artificial heart designed to function as a permanent replacement. The "Frontiers Profile" segment looks at the Framingham Heart Study.
