The transplant is not a solution for all heart problems, obviously. In fact, it can only be carried out in a very small number of patients who are less than 55-60 years old, with some very determined heart diseases that drastically limit their life expectancy, to no more than 2 or 3 years, that have all the other vital organs in excellent condition (particularly the kidneys, the liver and the lungs), that are very emotionally stable and that have a very cooperative family.
It is about finding a donor heart first, which will generally come from a healthy person killed in an accident, without injuries that affect the heart. The donor heart’s is transported in a special solution as quickly as possible to the recipient patient, whose thoracic cavity will already be open and without a diseased heart. The new organ is put in its place. In Heart Transplant Hospitals, the heart transplant, like all major heart surgery, is done under general anesthesia. The intervention usually lasts several hours, during which part of the heart and lung function must be assumed by an extracorporeal circulation machine.
Causes of Heart Failure
In adults, heart failure can occur due to various diseases, among which are the following:
- Weakening of the heart muscle (Cardiomyopathy)
- Coronary artery disease
- The disease of the heart valves
- A heart problem at birth (congenital heart defect)
- Recurrent dangerous abnormal heart rhythms (ventricular arrhythmias) not controlled by other treatments
- Failure of a previous heart transplant
In children, heart failure usually occurs due to a congenital heart defect or Cardiomyopathy.
Heart Failure Treatment In India Increases 10 Times
Since the year 2016, there has been a tenfold increase in cases of Heart Failure Treatment in India. A report says that due to better coordination between heart rate, recovery, and transplantation, such a situation has been created. In India, there have been approximately 300 heart transplants in the last two years. Heart transplant surgery is a very sensitive process, during which the fully active and healthy heart is implanted in place of damaged muscles, arterial or valve heart.
Doctors of Heart Transplant Hospitals said that most of the bodies removed from the body of a person declared as ‘Brain Dead’ can be preserved for several hours unless they are implanted in another person’s body. They also said that once the blood is taken from a person’s body is stored for a long time and it is given to others when necessary. The story of Dancer Claire Sylvia establishes the point of cellular memory that memory and consciousness can survive in cells and move to other people.
Medical experts said that after donating heart and lungs in Sylvia’s body, properties of donor began to develop male change to sexual preferences from woman to woman, green and blue choice of red color, the taste of chicken and beer. However, this cannot happen in everyone. The process of fixing the organs is called Harvesting. This transplant is done in the organ recipient, which requires that organ. There are two types of organ donation – live donations and dead or cadaver donations.
Professionals said that the figures show that the number of heart transplant has increased, but there is a need to have more awareness about it. People should be sensitive about the fact that they can survive even through death. There is also a need to get rid of myths and misconceptions about organ donation and spread the message that how beneficial it can be for another person.
According to HCFI, high age is not obstructed in the angles. Even people above the age of 80 can become an organ and tissue donor. There is no need to be healthy for donation. Even those who smoke, drink or do not eat healthy food, they can also donate the yarn. Organ and tissue donation do not ‘define’ the body in some way.
