Heart Transplant Specialist India
- Posted on in Organ Transplant
A Heart Transplant is done a patient with end stage heart failure or very severe Coronary Artery Disease. A brain dead donor or recently deceased person’s heart is removed and implanted in to the patient after doing several blood and tissue matching to ensure least rejections.
There is a large waiting period for the Heart Transplants and the donors are very few. The concept of organ donation after death (cadaver donor) is picking up in India and will still take some more years that the relatives of the deceased would voluntarily come forward for donation to save many lives.
