Heart - Surgery & Transplantation

Heart transplant is a treatment that's usually reserved for people this is a treatment option for people who are in the end stages of heart failure, but their conditions haven't sufficiently improved. 90% of heart transplants are performed on patients with end-stage heart failure. A heart transplant is an operation in which the diseased heart in a person is replaced with a healthy heart from a deceased donor. The first heart transplant patient survived only 18 days, four of Groote Schuur Hospital’s first 10 patients survived for more than one year, two living for 13 and 23 years, respectively. Clinical research studies are designed to answer specific questions, sometimes about a new drug or medical device's safety and effectiveness. Rejection is the most common cause of the donor heart failing in heart transplant patients. If the transplanted heart fails, the patient dies.
