Heart transplantation is the process of replacing the diseased heart with a healthy heart from a suitable donor. This procedure is done on patients with end stage heart disease or other dangerous heart conditions. The heart transplantation can improve the life span of a person. The implantation of healthy heart in place of less working heart will help the patient to lead a normal life.
The most common conditions that damage the heart and result in heart transplantation are coronary artery disease and idiopathic cardiomyopathy. Heart transplantation is an inevitable procedure when the hearts can no longer pump well enough to supply blood with oxygen and nutrients to the organs of the body. Sometimes, the problem may also be associated with the bad “electrical conduction system of the heart which determines the rate, rhythm and sequence of contraction of heart muscle.
