A change of heart: A conversation with Dick Cheney

His first heart attack occurred when he was 37, a young man running for the U.S. Congress in Wyoming. His last - a fifth - happened in 2010. Facing end-stage heart failure, Dick Cheney received a left ventricular assist device in the summer of 2010 that saved his life. But the device wasn't enough; a transplant was the only option. Nearly two years after his transplant, Cheney and his cardiologist, Jonathan Reiner, MD, have written a book about his history of heart ailments, Heart: An American Medical Odyssey. In this podcast, the former vice president talks about life after near death.
