Numerous additional medical examinations could only prove the previous result: the man's heart was not beating. When doctors were checking Nikolai out of the hospital, they told him about the remarkable peculiarity of his cardiovascular system. At present moment Nikolai visits a local cardio-center once in a month to have his unique heart examined.
”When doctors told me about my heart, I was shocked. I was afraid to walk and even to breath. I was panicking all the time: I thought that blood
would stop flowing through my body and I would just die. Then I got used to it. Now I can even forget about it at times,” Nikolai said.
The heart, long thought to be little more than a muscle that pumps blood, has been shown to produce biologically powerful substances that probably act as hormones.
The researchers said the chemicals made in the heart probably act as hormones important to the function of the kidneys and the circulatory system. A hormone is a substance produced by one organ to circulate through the body and affect distant tissues. Because the heart substances have not been found in the blood, the scientists said it was still premature to call them hormones.
