Heart Transplantation

A heart transplant is a surgical transplant procedure performed on patients with end stage heart failure or severe coronary artery disease, when other medical or surgical treatments have failed. Heart transplant surgery used to remove the diseased heart from a person and replace it with a healthy one from an organ donor. Heart failure is a disease in which the heart muscle is failing severely in its attempt to pump blood through the body. Some patients are less suitable for a heart transplant, mainly if they have other circulatory conditions related to their heart condition. Heart transplantation is not considered to be a cure for heart disease; rather it is a life-saving treatment intended to improve the quality and duration of life for a recipient.

Some causes of heart failure include

  • Heart attack
  • High blood pressure
  • Alcoholism or drug abuse
  • Low red blood cell count (anemia)
  • Viral infection of the heart muscle
  • COPD
  • Sweating
