What is a bungled heart?

Hello Anonymous,

Welcome to EmpowHER. Thank you this interesting question.

There is no condition called a bungled heart. I think you might be referring to a bungled heart surgery.

The word bungle is a verb and means to carry out a task clumsily or incompetently, leading to failure or an unsatisfactory outcome. Bungled is the past tense.

Here is the link to:
$40 million award for bungled operation
Man needed transplant after heart burned by malfunctioning machine

The book "A Death Retold" chronicles the accidental death of Jessica Santillan during a heart and lung transplant surgery.

Is this what you were asking about?
