Abstract

The classic description of the Chimera since the days of ancient Greece dating to Homer was a beast with the head of a lion, the body of a goat, and the tail of a serpent. The concept of this mythical creature - one animal made from parts of others - remained the epitome of modern transplantation, symbolizing the American Society of Transplant Surgeons.
