Description

Heart Transplant surgery is done to replace a damaged heart with a healthy, working heart that is taken from an Ďorgan donorí who has recently died. However, in very rare cases, the diseased heart is kept in its place to support the donated heart, instead of being removed. Heart transplant is used as a last resort when all the other cardiac treatments fail to improve the health of the patient.
