Clinical Activities
Vanderbilt University Medical Center's history of pioneering advances in heart transplantation has made it the region's premier heart transplant center. Vanderbilt's first heart transplant was performed in April 1985. The Vanderbilt Transplant Center performed Tennessee's first pediatric heart transplant. Vanderbilt's Heart Transplant Program was also the first program in Tennessee to perform heart transplant in infants for hypoplastic left heart syndrome. The success of the heart transplants at Vanderbilt is a testament to the success of the collaborative, multi-disciplinary approach to transplant science supported by the Vanderbilt Transplant Center. Under the direction of Dr. Davis C. Drinkwater, Surgical Director, Dr. Stacy F. Davis, Medical Director for Adult Transplantation, and Dr. Debra A. Dodd, Medical Director for Pediatric Transplantation, the Heart Transplant Program functions as a multidisciplinary team, bringing to bear the skills of cardiology, pulmonology, nephrology, nursing, infectious disease, pathology, social work, nutrition, ethics, psychiatry, rehabilitation medicine and surgery to address the needs of patients with end-stage cardiopulmonary disease. The program consists of adult heart transplantation, adult alternate recipient program (for age >65), pediatric heart transplantation and mechanical circulatory support. The results for each program continue to equal or surpass national and international outcome benchmarks.

82. My Transplant
Well, that was just a little over 11 years ago. I was the 38th heart transplant done at UCLA I don t know how many they have done since.
My purpose here is to make people aware of the desperate shortage of ORGAN DONORS.
My own experience
I had my first heart attack at age 35 and it was a doozy. Myocardial infarction, they called it...massive, they said. Total arrest in the ER, twice in half an hour, they said. I have to take their word for it, I don't remember a thing. That was in November, 1981. Oh yeah, did I mention I was going through a divorce at the same time? MAJOR BUMMER! In May, 1983, I had my 2nd myocardial infarction (I hate that word). In June I had bypass surgery and felt pretty good for 3 years, even continued to work. By early fall of 1986 I was really sick and they told me "congestive heart failure, nothing we can do. Take it easy and think about a transplant." Christmas Eve, 1986... My cardiologist puts me in the hospital and they transfer me to UCLA Medical Center the day after Christmas. "You have perhaps 6 months, Mr. Fowler, we will do our best to get you a new heart." Now..I knew that people had to wait months, even years, before a donor might be found...I wasn't feeling very hopeful. So, I started looking back at my life and I wasn't very pleased with what I saw. And I knew, that if I got lucky and lived through this, I

Personal account of a heart transplant in 1997, before, during and after the procedure.
Heart Transplant: A Patient's Perspective
Taavi Kubits

In 1997 I had a heart transplant. This is the story of my going through end stage heart failure, transplant evaluation, waiting, transplant surgery and recovery, and life afterwards.
It is an overwhelming experience, but one of the best weapons against fear and uncertainty is knowledge. Your experience may be nothing like mine, but this is what happened to me and what I have learned.
Before CHF

Although it seems to confuse many people, the name Taavi is masculine. Born in Tallinn, Estonia in 1943; right in the middle of all the excitement. Our family finally made it to America in 1949. .
I hired on with Univac in 1968 and remained with them for what seems like forever. The company went through various reorganizations and exists today as Unisys. I traveled around fixing mainframe computer systems for 10+ plus years, and even had my appendix removed in Switzerland!
The traveling finally got to be too much for me. My health was starting to fail although I did not realize it yet. I continued in a series of desk jobs in both hardware and software until I had to go out on Disability in 1995.
My Health

My heart problems began with rheumatic fever at age 10. I seemed to recover ok but was left with a murmur. I had my first heart cath in 1967. It was quite a big deal then, including 5 days in the hospital; things sure have changed over the years! I found out in the mid '70s (by reading an unattended file, not by being directly told) that I had Cardiomyopathy. I slowly deteriorated through the 1970s and '80s and got much worse about 1990. I couldn't breathe lying down, stairs were a major effort that had to be planned for, constantly nauseous and exhausted, and I got hauled out of work once on a stretcher. My weight dropped from 242 to 165. Then I also went into atrial fribulation in 1992.

What is cardiac transplantation?
Orthotopic cardiac transplantation is the process of explanting (removing) a person's failing heart and replacing it with a suitable donor heart from a person who has been declared clinically brain dead. Return to Top
Heart transplantation indications
Heart transplantation is used as a last resort for people with end-stage heart disease who have no other surgical or medical therapy available. Generally, people listed for heart transplantation have a life expectancy of less than one year, and often much less. In addition, candidates often have significant limitations of their activity and lifestyle prior to transplantation. The goal of heart transplantation is to return the patient to as functional a state as possible with the least amount of limitations and best quality of life.

The Inova Transplant Center has been a pioneer in the Washington, DC, metropolitan area, establishing its Heart Transplant Program in 1986, when it recognized a growing need for a center of excellence in lung transplantation. The program is responsible for the area's first heart transplant in 1986 and has launched many other programs, including the ventricular assist device and lung transplant programs.

Department of Surgery Home Page The University of Colorado's Adult Heart Transplant Program has been in existence since 1986 and is the only Medicare-certified heart transplant program in Colorado. This program achieved patient and graft survival rates in the top percentiles nationwide with over 200 patients transplanted. A multi-disciplinary approach is used for patient management in all phases of care from the selection phase through post-operative follow-up. Pre-operative care is delivered by the transplant cardiologists in the Heart Failure Clinic at University of Colorado Hospital. Care is coordinated through the patient's referring physician and communication is maintained with the referring physicians on each visit. The transplant coordinators, transplant cardiologists, social worker and transplant financial coordinator are always available to patients during their visits to clinic or during their hospital stay. Patients waiting for a transplant are provided educational assistance in preparing for their transplant and are accessible 24 hours a day in the event they need to be contacted immediately. Patient selection for cardiac transplantation at University Hospital is based on both critical medical need for the transplantation and the likelihood of a successful outcome. Critical need for cardiac transplantation is defined as a life expectancy of less than 12 months due to cardiac disease with no reasonable possibility of improvement with medical or surgical therapy. Likely success is predicted by a lack of absolute contraindications and absent or few relative contraindications.

HEART TRANSPLANTS Heart transplantation is no longer an experimental procedure but rather a highly effective therapy for the treatment of end-stage heart disease. According to the United Network for Organ Sharing, a total of 26,704 heart transplantations have been reported worldwide, and 1,804 of these were performed in Texas. It is estimated that as many as 15,000 people per year could benefit from a heart transplant, but the actual number of recipients is constrained by the donor supply. Worldwide, just over 3,000 heart transplants are performed each year. In 1994 167 of these were in Texas. In September 1994 the rival institutions in Houston announced a change of heart. Methodist Hospital of Houston qv and St. Luke's signed a letter of intent to merge the two world-renowned heart-transplantation centers. In 1995 O. H. Frazier, the chief of cardiopulmonary transplantation and codirector of the Cullen Cardiovascular Research Laboratories at the Texas Heart Institute, continued work in both heart transplantation and artificial heart research.

"Some tough work with those gloves on"
The Hubble Space Telescope appears to have survived a tricky spacewalk operation to fit a new power control unit. "Hubble has a heartbeat," Nasa spokesman Rob Navias said after astronauts from the Columbia space shuttle fitted the new component and mission controllers turned the power back on. The spacewalkers had to work quickly so that Hubble's power could be turned back on before it was damaged by the extreme cold of space. Signs of weakness had been detected in the existing power unit. The new one is to last until the telescope is taken out of service in 2010. Element of risk There was no guarantee that the power would come back on once the unit was installed - although Nasa was always confident it would. Astronauts John Grunsfeld and Richard Linnehan took about four hours to remove the old power unit and fit the new one. It was a tricky job, delayed by a leak in Grunsfeld's spacesuit and involving 36 connections in cramped conditions.

Organ transplant
An organ transplant is the transplantation of an organ (or part of one) from one body to another, for the purpose of replacing the recipient's damaged or failing organ with a working one from the donor. Blood transfusion and bone marrow transplants are special cases of a transplant where the transplanted part of the body is renewable; in other cases, the organ donor either has another of the same organ (such as lungs or kidneys ), or has been declared brain dead Organs that can currently be transplanted include: The heart and lungs are sometimes transplanted together, in a heart-lung transplant. Organ transplants that can not be performed today include
Successful inter-human transplants have a relatively long history, the operative skills were present long before the necessities for post-operative survival were discovered. Rejection was, is, and may always be the key problem. The third century saints Damian and Cosmas are recorded as performing the first medical transplant - replacing the gangrenous leg of a white man with the leg of a dead Moor. Less miraculous was the work of French surgeon

Heart transplant pioneer dies
NICOSIA, Cyprus (CNN) Heart transplant pioneer Dr. Christiaan Barnard died Sunday. Barnard, 78, died in his hotel room in the southwest coastal town of Paphos, said Dr. Maro Svana, a spokeswoman for Paphos General Hospital. He was taken from the hotel in an ambulance to the hospital, where he was pronounced dead at 1 a.m. (6 p.m. Saturday EDT), she said. An autopsy will be performed Monday. In a five-hour operation at Groote Schuur Hospital in Cape Town in 1967, Barnard replaced the diseased heart of Louis Washkansky with that of a woman in her mid-20s who had died in a car accident. Washkansky died 18 days later of double pneumonia, the result of his suppressed immune system. But the surgery represented a milestone, and propelled the South Africa surgeon, then 45, to acclaim. "On Saturday, I was a surgeon in South Africa, very little known," he recalled years later to a documentary producer. "On Monday, I was world renowned."

POSTED 18 OCT 2001 On Sept. 14, the National Day of Remembrance for victims of the Sept. 11 terrorist attack, Chucky finally got lucky. James (Chuck) Reynolds, 54, had been waiting in the hospital for three and one-half months for a heart. In other words, he was waiting for a generous stranger to die. A stranger with the correct blood type and a heart suited to Reynolds's large chest. Otherwise, Thomas Starkey, his heart surgeon at University of Wisconsin-Madison Hospital, had told him he would die of heart failure. In fact, Reynolds was already rather far along in the process of retiring from life. A registered nurse from the hills of southwest Wisconsin, his failing heart prevented him from working, even caring for his three young boys.

My book has inspirational stories about donor families and liver, kidney, and heart transplant recipients, including my own heart transplant in 1989. By Jeffrey R. Lueders. My Story
Almost 12 years ago I received the gift of life, a heart transplant. My donor, Brandon, was only 15, riding his bike home when he was tragically hit and killed by a car. That's him on the cover in his football uniform. During my illness and wait for an organ, I lost faith in God but He never gave up on me. My accomplishments and zeal for life since my transplant completing graduate school, getting married, writing this book, all while working full-time as public affairs manager for LifeCenter, the local organ recovery agency in Cincinnati. Other Transplant Recipient Friends
Read about others who have received heart, liver, kidney, and kidney/pancreas transplants as well as a young burn patient who received donated skin. People like Patty Britton, a young woman who has survived 3 liver transplants. Who, in an ironic turn of events, also became a donor mother when her newborn baby Christopher lost his fight for life. A physician at the University of Cincinnati Medical Center and Childrens Hospital of Cincinnati, Dr. Ed Lowe, became a patient when he needed a heart transplant.
