Success, life expectancy, and preservation of heart transplants. What is the life expectancy of a successful heart transplant patient?
Success, life expectancy, and preservation of heart transplants
Question was submitted by: nili on 10/12/95.
What is the rate of heart tranplant success?
What is the life expectancy of a successful heart transplant patient?
What is the length of time and means of preservation of a harvested heart?
1) The success of heart transplantation obviously varies according to risk factors prior to transplantation. In general the success rate of the surgery is close to 95% in most centers on the average. Traditional risk factors include age over 60, patients transplanted who are on a ventilator, patients with an elevated panel reactive antibody level (antibodies in the blood to foreign antigens seen rarely), patients who have had a previous heart transplant, and patients who have high pressures in the pulmonary (lung) blood vessels. At this time, however, a standard transplant has a 95% or higher chance of being initially successful, and if you survive the initial 30 days the chances are close to 90% that you will be alive at the end of the first year. 2) Life expectancy folllowing heart transplant is somewhat harder to predict because it depends upon a number of factors including age, patient compliance, immunological match of donor to recipient, and the era in which you were transplanted. Again average survival, obtained from

    California Pacific initiated the nation’s first heart transplant service in a private institution in 1984 and has been at the forefront of disease management and transplant ever since. We were the first center in the nation to successfully place and maintain a patient on a bi-ventricular assist device (BiVAD) while waiting for a donor heart and have been a leader in developing the “bridge-to-transplantation.”
    With heart disease affecting an estimated 58 million people in the U.S. alone, medical researchers continue to pursue better treatment options. To this end, California Pacific is one of 20 clinical trial sites for the MicroMed DeBakey VAD®,

    hristiaan Neethling Barnard was born in the town of Beaufort West, on the edge of the great Karoo, the dry and arid interior of South Africa, in 1922.His father was a preacher and there were 4 boys in the family. He did well at school , learned music and played sport, and decided on leaving school to study medicine at the University of Cape Town. The Barnard family was not wealthy but managed to secure a 3 year scholarship. He stayed with his older brother and walked to the University. There was little money to spare and even less time for leisure. Another problem was language, as his mother tongue was Afrikaans, and he had to learn to express himself in English. After 6 years he graduated and did internship and residency at Groote Schuur Hospital and Peninsula Maternity. He then joined a colleague and moved to a small town, Ceres, and married Louwtjie.

    Experts say animal-human heart transplants risky, for now
    WASHINGTON (Reuters) It is too soon to start experimenting with animal-to-human transplants of hearts or lungs because the procedure is still far too risky, an international transplant group said on Friday. Although taking organs from farm animals such as pigs offers the possibility of an almost limitless supply, the organs still do not work well in people and there is too big a chance that an unknown virus could pass into the human population, the International Society for Heart and Lung Transplantation said.

    Heart transplant
    Definition: Heart transplantation is a surgical procedure to remove a damaged or diseased heart and replace it with a healthy donor heart.
    Alternative Names: Cardiac transplant; Transplant - heart
    Description: Heart transplants are the fourth most common (corneas, kidneys and liver are the most common) transplant operations in the U.S. (over 2,200 cases per year). A healthy heart is obtained from a donor who has suffered brain death but remains on life-support. The healthy heart is transported in a special solution that preserves the organ.
    While the patient is deep asleep and pain-free (general anesthesia), an incision is made through the breast bone (sternum). The patient's blood is re-routed through tubes to a heart-lung bypass machine to keep the blood oxygen-rich and circulating. The patient's diseased heart is removed and the donor heart is stitched in place.
    Indications: A heart transplant may be recommended for:

    • : As usual, paperwork always seems to hold things up. A delay in getting Rob into the insurance company's computer has kept his doctor from being able to make the much needed appt. They should know more by tomorrow.
    • : Mary was informed today that the doctor at the Univer. of Washington will not guarantee that he will do the transplant surgery without they're obviously not going there now.
      She's been told that there are only 2 places that will operate without blood,
      • the Texas Heart Institute in Houston and
      • the UCLA Medical Center in Calif.
      She's working with the Anchorage liaison committee to get more information on the UCLA clinic.
      Rob's doctor is on vacation this week (wouldn't you know!). And the Providence Clinic in Seattle that recently opened, which specializes in bloodless surgery does not perform transplant surgeries.
    • : Mary is in MUCH better spirits today. Even though they can't go to the Providence clinic in Seattle, she's been getting some very good information from them on the hospital in Houston. (And the woman at Providence who coordinates this stuff is a sister!)
      Dr. Coolie (?) is still a surgeon at the Houston hospital, but he no longer performs transplants. However, his partner does and has an excellent reputation. Now they'll just wait for their Anchorage doctor to return to the office on Monday and let him know they want to work making the arrangements for Houston.

    Bracing for Hubble's 'heart transplant'
    'Any major surgery entails a certain degree of risk'
    Operating at the end of Columbia's 50-foot robotic arm, spacewalkers on Tuesday installed Hubble's second of two new solar "arrays," or panels, designed to boost its energy by some 20 percent. By Porter Anderson CNN Editor's note: The third of five Hubble spacewalks a sensitive one in which mission specialists John Grunsfeld and Richard Linnehan are to replace the telescope's "PCU," or power control unit is to begin at roughly 1:30 a.m. EST Wednesday and last for some seven hours. (CNN) Medical metaphors were everywhere as NASA prepared to mount Wednesday's third of five spacewalks at the orbiting shuttle Columbia on its Hubble-repair mission. "In 1993," program scientist Dave Leckrone said in a briefing, "we like to say we performed 'eye surgery' on Hubble to correct its poor vision." Then, in a 1999 mission, NASA changed out part of the Hubble's gyroscope hardware, "and a lot of us," said Leckrone, "referred to that as 'brain surgery.'
