Vladimir Petrovich Demikhov, a Soviet physiologist and surgeon, made meticulous attempts at reviving heart and lung transplantation in the last century. Herein, we present an English translation of Demikhov's 1969 paper of Transplantation of the Heart, Lungs and other Organs (published in Eksperimental'naia Khirurgiia i Anesteziologiia), which represented a synopsis of his experiences with experimental transplantation. A brief account of Demikhov's life and contributions to transplant medicine is also given.
