Most people after heart surgery are at the mercy of their disease.

Internal Medicine - Cardiology
In brief: Non likely known
Well one of my patients had the surgery in 1972 so that's about forty years.
She is doing fine so maybe she will be #1 someday but i doubt if anyone knows. I'm sure someone can beat 40 years.
