When is a heart transplant necessary?

A heart transplant becomes a necessity if the patient has already suffered a major heart attack. When all other methods of medical intervention have failed to improve things, our cardiologists may refer the patient to our heart transplant department for a transplant assessment. In the first 3 months after the surgery, the patient will need to make regular visits to the hospital. At Fortis, one of the best heart care hospitals in India, the transplant team will regularly consult with the patient with regards to practical arrangements for post-surgery rehabilitation. Our main motto at Fortis is to provide unmatchable cardiovascular care to patients and help them resuscitate at the fastest.

Some of the most common cardiac conditions we treat at our heart care center:

Congenital heart defects: A congenital heart defect is an abnormality present at birth. Find information on specific types tailored to adults with heart defects and parents of children diagnosed with a defect.

Pericarditis: Pericarditis is inflammation of the pericardium, two thin layers of a sac-like tissue that surrounds the heart, holds it in place and helps it work. A common symptom of pericarditis is chest pain, caused by the sac’s layers becoming inflamed and possibly rubbing against the heart.

Peripheral artery disease: Peripheral artery disease (PAD) is a narrowing of the peripheral arteries to the legs, stomach, arms, and head — most commonly in the arteries of the legs.

Coronary artery disease: Coronary heart disease is a common term for the buildup of plaque in the heart’s arteries that could lead to heart attack. 

Venous thromboembolism: VTE is a term for blood clots that get lodged in the veins and may block blood flow. It includes deep vein thrombosis (DVT) and pulmonary embolism (PE). 

Heart failure:  Heart failure means that the heart isn't pumping as well as it should be. Congestive heart failure is a type of heart failure which requires seeking timely medical attention, although sometimes the two terms are used interchangeably.
