Heart Transplant

Articles on heart transplant surgery

- Angioplasty is a procedure to reconstruct or repair a blood vessel. In most cases, this term refers to a procedure to open and restore blood flow through a clogged artery. This procedure is often used as a less invasive treatment instead of traditional surgery.
aortic regurgitation
atrial septal defects
- An atrial septal defect is an abnormal opening in the wall of the heart that separates the right from the left atrium.
cardiac catheterization
blood flow studies
- This test measures blood flow through an artery or vein.
cardiac rehabilitation
- Cardiac rehabilitation is a program designed to help a person with heart disease return to health.
aortic stenosis
- The left side of the heart pumps oxygen-rich blood into the aorta, which is the main artery in the body. Before the blood reaches the aorta, it collects in an area called the left ventricle. The left ventricle squeezes, or contracts, regularly. That sends blood through the aortic valve and into the aorta.
coarctation of the aorta
congenital heart disease
- Cyanosis is a blue or purple discolouration of the skin that can occur when there is not enough oxygen in a person's blood or tissues.
coronary artery disease
heart and lung transplant
- A heart and lung transplant is a surgical procedure in which a person's poorly functioning heart and lungs are replaced with those a person who has died and donated their organs.

heart valve surgery
- There are 4 valves in the heart. They connect the 4 heart chambers. The valves help move the blood through the heart as it pumps. Valves that are not working properly can sometimes be repaired with surgery.
laser surgery
- A laser is a special high-energy beam of light that can be used to treat certain conditions.
mitral regurgitation, chronic
- Chronic mitral regurgitation occurs when the mitral valve in the heart fails to close tightly. This allows some oxygen-rich blood to flow back into the heart rather than out into the body.
mitral stenosis
- Mitral stenosis is an abnormal narrowing of the mitral valve, which is one of the heart valves. This "tight" valve obstructs the flow of blood within the heart.
left heart catheterisation
- Left heart catheterisation describes the placement of a tube into the heart. It is most commonly done to examine the arteries that supply the heart. It may also used to examine the structure and function of the left side of the heart.
myocardial contusion
open heart surgery
organ donation
- Organs such as the kidneys, heart, lungs, pancreas, and liver can be transplanted from one person into another person who is in need of a new organ. Organ donation can give others a second chance at life.
patent ductus arteriosus
- Patent ductus arteriosus (PDA) is the failure of a duct, or passageway, between two specific blood vessels to close. The blood vessels involved are the pulmonary artery and the aorta, two of the largest arteries in the body. It is a congenital heart disease, or a defect present at birth.
pulmonary atresia
- Pulmonary atresia is a serious birth defect in the heart which causes congenital heart disease.
sick sinus syndrome
- Sick sinus syndrome (SSS) is a set of symptoms caused by abnormal electrical activity in a part of the heart called the sinus node.
rheumatic fever
- This is an immune response that occurs in the body, causing inflammation and damage to certain organs, particularly the heart. It follows a streptococcal infection, such as strep throat or scarlet fever.
thoracic aortic aneurysm
- An aneurysm is an abnormal widening of a blood vessel. In this case, the blood vessel is in the aorta. This is the main blood vessel that takes blood from the heart to the rest of the body. The thoracic aorta is the part of the aorta that travels through the chest.
