The BeeGees are more concerned with mending cancerous livers and twisted intestines these days, Subby.

So will this actually fully restore the damaged heart, and let it love again?

Haven't they been using surgical glue since the viet nam war?  I remember a documentary on medical techniques on PBS from that period where they glued a guys liver back together in a field hospital.  I'm honestly surprised that it took them more than forty years to do it with a damaged heart.

Yes.  But there are different types based upon what they are supposed to affix and they are constantly being worked on for improvement / replacement.

True enough, but still, over forty years is a very long time in technological development even in the medical field which admittedly tends to be conservative in it's advancements.  I suppose that the time involved has more to do with it being a niche technology than anything else.
