When checking whether a heart is a good match the team will look at the quality of the heart, the size, and how well it matches blood and tissue type.

The most common causes of death following a transplant are infection and rejection. With the exception of having to take lifelong medication to keep the body from rejecting the new heart.

General symptoms of heart transplant rejection are- Fever Fluid collection in lungs Decreased oxygen level in blood Shortness of breath.

Functioning of heart is assessed by: Echocardiogram - measures the Ejection Fraction or EF which is a measure of how well the heart is contracting. NT-pro BNP - a hormone that rises in the blood as a response to a failing heart.

Heart transplant is done under general anaesthesia, first a soft flexible tube will be placed in your bladder for draining urine. Another tube will be put through your mouth or nose into your stomach for draining stomach fluids. Once you are asleep, a breathing tube will be put through your mouth into your lungs. The tube will be attached to a machine (ventilator) that will breathe for you during the surgery. The skin over your chest will be cleaned with an antiseptic solution.

  • The surgeon will make an incision down the centre of your chest from just below the Adam's apple to just above the navel.
  • After that surgeon will cut the breast bone in half and they will then separate the two half of the breast bone and spread them apart to reach your heart.

  • The surgeon will sew the donor heart into place. Once your new heart is in place, it is being connected with the blood vessels carefully so there are no leakage.
  • When your new heart is fully connected, the blood circulating through the bypass machine will be allowed back into the heart and the tubes to the machine are removed.
  • Tubes will be put into your chest to drain blood and other fluids from around the heart. These tubes will be connected to a suction device to drain fluids away from the heart as it heals.
  • A sterile bandage or dressing will be applied.
