Heart Transplant Usage

Written by FoundHealth.

Reasons for Procedure

A heart transplant is done if you have:

  • End stage heart disease that is life-threatening and cannot be fixed (but you are in otherwise good health)—This is most often due to cardiomyopathy (disease of the heart muscle) with severe congestive heart failure.
  • Severe coronary artery disease that cannot be fixed with medicine or other surgeries
  • Congenital heart defects
  • Valvular defects making it too hard for the heart to pump blood through the body
  • Uncontrollable life-threatening irregular heart rhythms
