Heart Transplant - What To Expect Post Procedure?

Multi-Speciality Clinic
Cardiologist, Hyderabad
Heart Transplant - What To Expect Post Procedure?

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.

In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

If anyone is confused between heart attack and chest pain due to gastric, then can it be traced by TMT & ECHO test that the previous issue was not due to the heart problem? Means can we trace out the previous heart attack in ECHO & TMT test and if not, then what is the best process?

Heartburn or heart attack: When to worry. Severe heartburn and heart attack can be hard to tell apart. Understand how they typically differ, and learn when to get immediate help. Probably, but there's a chance the chest pain is caused by reduced blood flow to your heart (angina) or an actual heart attack. Both heartburn and a heart attack commonly cause chest pain, which might radiate to the jaw or arm. The character of the pain and accompanying symptoms provide clues about the more likely cause. For example, burning chest pain accompanied by a sour or bitter taste in the mouth and burning in the back of the throat points toward heartburn. These symptoms relate to acidic stomach contents traveling up the esophagus into the back of the mouth. On the other hand, chest pain accompanied by shortness of breath, sweating and/or dizziness suggests the underlying problem is more likely a heart attack. Of course, the presence or absence of certain symptoms is insufficient to determine whether chest pain is due to a heartburn or a heart attack. Testing and further evaluation is necessary.

Usually the hypertension remains asymptomatic in many cases and only diagnosed accidentally or if there are any complications... Second thing if its only a one time reading then you should check it at least two more times on different days and then only you can decide if it comes more then you are hypertensive.. If it comes normal then you can maintain it by walk (exercise, pranayam), salt restrictions... If it comes higher than the normal range then you should consider taking a homeopathic treatment which can bring it down to normal in time and you will not have to take the medicines lifelong, plus it also improves general health... For a good homoeopathic medicine consult with more details... Till then you may try taking Veretrum Viride 30 (homoeopathic).

Chest paining from 2 days may be bcz of chain smoking . please guide Me any medicine or way to leave smoke.
If you really have the desire to quit smoking then only you can quit otherwise nothing can do anything. Soo all you need is to calculate how mny cigarette you smoke per day. Jst quit 1 cig per week. Say your taking 20 cig per day jst quit 1.19 cig per day do it for one week. Next week take 18 per day. Like this way quit jst 1 cig per week. N after few weeks you gonna see that you have quit it. That's the easiest way. Remember this only help you if you have burning desire to quit.

Yes, food and exercise will definitely improve your condition. But continue your medication and slowly taper it off. The following building blocks can help you get a good start on improving your physical fitness: - Be active every day. Move instead of watching TV, surfing the Internet, or vegging on the couch. Exercise at least 30 minutes a day—at least 60 minutes a day if you have a weight problem. - Exercise vigorously—greater than 60 percent of maximum effort—if you want to improve fitness. Engage in a variety of activities, including weight-training, cardio, stretching, and muscle endurance exercises. - Eat a healthy diet. Eat a variety of foods, emphasizing fruits, vegetables, whole-grain products, and lean meats. Avoid simple sugars, saturated and trans fats, excessive amounts of alcohol, and desserts. - Take care of obvious health problems. See your physician regularly for checkups. Get treated for known problems, such as high blood pressure and high blood fats. Stop smoking. Do back-pain-prevention exercises if you have a back problem. - Enjoy life and reduce stress. Stress is the root cause of many health problems. Indians work hard trying to make it in a competitive society. Take time to enjoy your friends and family. Hope this helps.
