Heart Transplant - When to Go For it?

M.Ch. CVTS

Heart Transplant - When to Go For it?

A heart transplant is an operation in which a failing, diseased heart is replaced with a healthier, donor heart. Heart transplant is a treatment that's usually reserved for people who have tried medications or other surgeries, but their conditions haven't sufficiently improved.

While a heart transplant is a major operation, your chance of survival is good, with appropriate follow-up care.

When faced with a decision about having a heart transplant, know what to expect of the heart transplant process, the surgery itself, potential risks and follow-up care.

Why it's done

Heart transplants are performed when other treatments for heart problems haven't worked, leading to heart failure. In adults, heart failure can be caused by several conditions, including:

  1. A weakening of the heart muscle (cardiomyopathy)
  2. Coronary artery disease
  3. Heart valve disease
  4. A heart problem you're born with (congenital heart defect)
  5. Dangerous recurring abnormal heart rhythms (ventricular arrhythmias) not controlled by other treatments
  6. Amyloidosis
  7. Failure of a previous heart transplant
  8. In children, heart failure is most often caused by either a congenital heart defect or a cardiomyopathy.

Another organ transplant may be performed at the same time as a heart transplant (multiorgan transplant) in people with certain conditions at select medical centers. Multiorgan transplants include:

  1. Heart-kidney transplant. This procedure may be an option for some people with kidney failure in addition to heart failure.
  2. Heart-liver transplant. This procedure may be an option for people with certain liver and heart conditions.
  3. Heart-lung transplant. Rarely, doctors may suggest this procedure for some people with severe lung and heart diseases, if the conditions aren't able to be treated by only a heart transplant or lung transplant.

Factors that may affect your eligibility for a heart transplant

A heart transplant isn't the right treatment for everyone. Certain factors may mean you're not a good candidate for a heart transplant. While each case is considered individually by a transplant center, a heart transplant may not be appropriate if you:

  1. Are an advanced age that would interfere with the ability to recover from transplant surgery
  2. Have another medical condition that could shorten your life, regardless of receiving a donor heart, such as a serious kidney, liver or lung disease
  3. Have an active infection
  4. Have a recent personal medical history of cancer
  5. Are unwilling or unable to make lifestyle changes necessary to keep your donor heart healthy, such as not drinking alcohol or not smoking

What happens after the transplant?

Most people leave hospital within about four weeks of the operation, but depending on your condition, you may need to stay in hospital for longer.

In the first few months after your surgery you will need to spend a lot of time visiting the hospital – you might even need to stay near the transplant centre. Your transplant team will talk to you about practical arrangements for after your surgery.

Although you will be weak after the operation, recovery can be very quick. It is important to build up your level of activity gradually. You should avoid activities involving lifting and pushing until your breastbone is fully healed, which can take up to three or four months.

Once you feel fit and able, you can start doing things like light vacuuming or light gardening. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a cardiologist.

There are different causes of chest pain. Cardiac chest pain or angina is squeezing type of heaviness which appears on working hard and goes away on resting. Gastritis is burning type of pain related to meals. There are other causes of chest pain like muscular pain also. It is best if you get yourself evaluated properly by a cardiologist. Some tests like treadmill test can help differentiate cardiac chest pain from noncardiac chest pain.

Etc 3) Increased rate of atherosclerosis and it's related complications like stroke (लकवा) and heart attack. These risks start decreasing the day you stop smoking. Repeat test after stoping smoking.

Abnormal awareness of own heart beat is called palpitation. There could various reasons for palpitation. It could be because of anxiety or tension. It could be because of various cardiac reasons like valve disease, increase in heart size (hypertrophy) etc and also because of hormone disorders like thyroid hormone, adrenal hormones etc. You should consult a cardiologist in person for further diagnosis and treatment.

For paroxysmal supraventricular tachycardia you need to consult a cardiologist who have is an ep specialist. So far as angiography goes conventional angiography gives the final answer. Ct angiography is more of a screening test. If the heart is'weakening' better to go for conventional angiography to check if any vessels are blocked. In delhi all good centres like medanta, fortis escorts and aiims have the required facilities.

I am 35 years old man with well built athletic body. I jog for 3 kms per day followed by 100 indian push ups, 100 squats etc. I also practice martial arts and go for trek pretty often. I never get tired no matter how steep the trek maybe. But in spite of all this, 3 out of 4 BP readings are high (150/85 - 160/85). 1 in 4 readings is normal (120-130/80-85). I also have moderate LVH but all the stress tests have been negative. I want to keep my BP low without medication. Please suggest.

Salil it's rather unfortunate that inspite of such a healthy lifestyle you have high blood pressure. You can take the following steps: 1) Try meditation. Probably you need to tone down your sympathetic drive. Don't do kapalbhati...meditation for mind relaxation. 2) Get your ambulatory bllod pressure checked. That way we can know how much part of the day you have high BP. 3) Lastly you could start some high blood pressure medication. Better to have your BP under control you can prevent many long term complications.

Occasional pain on right side not relayed to exertion is probably non cardiac origin. Smoking at this young age can reduce your life span considerably. You are exposing yourself to the risk of heart attack, lung cancer, copd and many more diseases. All though your current medical problem might not be serious at present smoking can land you in serious trouble 10-20 years down the line.

My father iz 55 years old. He smokes and drinks a lot and is suffering from high cholesterol.
Treatment for high cholesterol is lipid lowering drugs. But it is prudent to rather treat the cause than the effect. Which means if he avoids alcohol eats low fat diet and exercises regularly he might not need to take medicines.

At this age high blood pressure generally develops because of stressfull life with irregular schedule inadequate sleep lack of exercise and eating junk food. You should modify your lifestyle to avoid all this. You should exercise regularly. Perform isotonic exercise like walking aerobic etc. Control fat and salt in diet. Drink adequate amount of water. Start meditation to relax your mind. If all these things don't help consult a physician/ cardiologist.

Ideally at this age you should not have problem in breathing. Sensation of heart beat can be normal. I think you should get an echocardiography done.

Chest pain jo heart ki vajah se hota hai wo chale ne pe ya kaam karne pe aata hai aur araam karne se chala jata hai. Gas ka dard chest mein ho sakta hai. Treadmill test (tmt) karne se dono mein fark kar sakte hain. Cardiologist ko dikhayein.

From your history it appears that you are really stressed out. Nowadays many youngsters having such complains which I believe are mainly because abnormal lifestyle like lack rest lack of sleep abnormal eating times, eating junk food so on and so forth. You need to adopt a healthy stress free lifestyle. Like regular exercise healthy food at normal times at least 8 hours of sleep. From what I see meditation and yoga will be great help. Do see a doctor so that he does necessary test for chest pain. Changing your lifestyle at this age will prevent many diseases like diabetes, blood pressure, coronary artery disease etc.
