Frequently Asked Questions Related to Heart Transplant

Before the Procedure (15 Questions):

Heart Transplant procedure consists of three stages: The first stage is harvesting the heart from the donor. The second removing the recipient's damaged heart And lastly is the implantation of donor's heart.

 

Contradictions are: Insulin-dependent diabetes with severe organ dysfunction Recent thromboembolism such as stroke Advanced kidney, lung, or liver disease Metastatic cancer Life-threatening diseases including acute infection or systemic disease such as systemic lupus erythematosus, sarcoidosis Vascular disease.

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.

At Vaidam, we are proud to associate with several Joint commission international (JCI )accredited Indian hospitals in our panel. Also Vaidam is the first and only online medical facilitator in India accredited by NABH. This recognition is an acknowledgment to the quality of care being provided to patients, safety standards and services.

85 to 90 percent patients live 2 years or more. 60% of them live for 5 years or more.

Heart transplant is the surgery to remove the disease part of heart from a person and then to replace it with a healthy heart from donor organ.  Before you can start with your heart transplant the doctor makes sure that this is the best treatment choice for your heart failure.

Heart transplant can take less than four hours to be done while some complex procedures will take seven to nine hours to be done.

Some of the causes of heart failure incudes heart attack, viral infection, high blood pressure, heart valve disease, heart defects seen at the time of birth, irregular heart beats, high blood pressure in lungs, alcohol intake,  low red blood cell count, chronic lung disease.

During the Procedure (4 Questions):

A heart transplant operation usually takes between 4-6 hrs.

Before undergoing heart transplantation you have to undergo some tests which doctor will prescribe you such as blood test, diagnostic tests such as X-rays, ultrasound, CT scans.  You should not eat or drink anything before six hours of the procedure.

A routine heart transplant surgery can be performed in less than four hours, while some complex ones may take seven to eight hours or even more than it.

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 put tubes into your chest so that your blood can be pumped through by a heart-lung machine.Once the blood has been completely diverted into the bypass machine eased 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.

Post the Procedure (6 Questions):
