dc.description.abstractThis video contains images from Nathan's surgery. Carol Bartoo reports: 18-month-old Nathan Roberts has waited more than half his life for this day. On Jan. 12, a donor was found for the Alabama toddler. Nathan would have died from heart failure back in the spring, but Vanderbilt Pediatric Heart Specialists were able secure the use of a new device--- the Berlin Heart--- to bridge him to transplant. No one expected the bridge to take so long, but everyone agrees the Berlin Heart saved the boy's life. Other news from Vanderbilt: 1. A new brain scan test for Dyslexia. 2. A space video showing a third of outer space, a project of the Sloan Digital Sky Survey.en_US
