    • Re-transplantation Multi-organ transplantation Transplants on even the tiniest infants and children.
    Many of our patients are considered high-risk and, in the recent past, would have been considered ineligible for transplant. Specifically, we have performed several successful transplants in patients who were rejected for transplant by other medical centers. In 2001, we had the shortest waiting list for heart transplants and the highest case volume in Illinois.

After performing Illinois’ first-ever infant heart transplant in 1988, Children’s Memorial rapidly became an international resource for pediatric heart transplants. Since 1988, the hospital’s Pediatric Heart Transplant Program has performed more than 100 heart transplants on infants and children with complex congenital heart disease, cardiomyopathies, and life-threatening cardiac arrhythmias. The program boasts an excellent first-year survival rate of more than 90 percent, and a five-year rate of more than 70 percent. Longer-term recovery is also impressive, with most patients experiencing no limitations to normal childhood activity three years after their surgery.

    The University of Utah Heart Transplant Program is a vital component in the treatment of patients with heart disease. A pioneer in artificial heart technology, the University designed and developed the first artificial heart, and the first artificial heart transplant performed on a human patient took place at University Hospital. Despite taking on the most challenging of cases, frequently patients who have been turned down at other institutions, the program has achieved remarkable patient and graft survival rates. In 1986 the University Hospital was among the first group of hospitals to be designated Medicare-approved centers for heart transplantation. Extensive Resources Through Affiliation
    The Heart Transplant Program at the University of Utah began in 1985, and is part of the Utah Transplantation Affiliated Hospitals (U.T.A.H.) Cardiac Transplant Program. One of the largest centers in the country, U.T.A.H. has performed over 680 transplants since the program’s inception. The U.T.A.H. Transplant Program is unique in its ability to provide multiple resources to both adult and pediatric patients. Expert Care
    The University of Utah Heart Transplant Program takes a multidisciplinary approach providing patients access to a variety of health care professionals including transplant cardiologists, surgeons, and registered nurse coordinators, dietitians, a licensed clinical social worker, financial advisors, and support staff. The transplant team has extensive training and experience in all phases of care, from evaluation and selection of candidates through post-operative follow-up. While many hospitals across the country struggle to find one physician and one surgeon who meet the criteria for United Network for Organ Sharing certification, at University Hospital, three cardiac surgeons and three transplant cardiologists meet and exceed the UNOS criteria.

    Cardiac Transplantation Approximately 2,300 heart transplants are now performed each year in more than 150 heart transplant centers in the United States. The surgeons and cardiologists of Columbia University Medical Center have a long and distinguished history of advancing "standards of care" and the survival rates of our patients by using innovative surgical techniques, by applying our basic scientific research in immunosuppression to the clinical setting, and by inventing and perfecting life-sustaining cardiac assist devices that prolong life while waiting for organ availability.
    The Heart Transplant Team As you may already know, and will learn further, transplant recipients are not passive participants in their health care. They must be proactive and influential activists during the entire process. Following surgery, they face a long recovery period, episodes of rejection, reintegration into family and work roles, and lifelong responsibility for complying with drug and dietary recommendations. Recovery following transplant involves adjusting to many lifestyle changes, including unceasing monitoring of your cardiac and total health, administering an extensive medication regimen, committing to new habits in eating and physical exercise, and perhaps abandoning past behaviors that contributed to your own heartÕs demise. Your rehabilitation and adaptation following transplantation is a lifelong process.

    Mission Statement The Heart Transplant Association is a not-for-profit organization committed to improving the quality of life of transplant candidates, recipients and their families. The Association serves its members in three key areas:
    Support We provide support and encouragement to transplant candidates, recipients and their families to help alleviate the stresses and challenges associated with transplantation.
    Education We also provide transplant recipients and their families with the latest information on developments in transplantation, medications, social issues, and related topics.
    Donor Awareness We feel promoting organ and tissue donation is an important social responsibility. To that end, we provide speakers to community groups and members of the media who request our assistance with public awareness projects. This allows us to spread the word and effectively share our views on transplantation and organ and tissue donation with the general public.

    Fractures in liver transplant recipients
    The grey background shows number of patients in each study, the black bars are the fracture rates. Bone density is generally lower in patients who get a fracture, but some patients fracture despite normal bone density. Older patients and women are more likely to fracture. Markers
    The osteocalcin levels decrease during the first 3 months after transplantation, and then they increase to levels higher than normal. The collagen-cross-links also increase. Magnesium
    A recent study has shown that magnesium intake was inversely associated with bone loss in heart transplant recipients. This is possibly related to PTH, which may be lower in the patients who took less magnesium. Treatment
    Several small or uncontrolled studies have been done in patients after heart transplantation, but the results are not consistent. Agents used have included calcitonin, calcidiol, calcitriol, etidronate, pamidronate, or alendronate.

    previous story: World's smallest pacemaker implanted in baby at Tampa hospital (3/25/04)
    ST. PETERSBURG - A life and death struggle continues for a bay area baby born with a series of health problems, including heart defects. But now a heart transplant may be his only chance. The baby's name is Kerrick Walker. 'Kerrick' means 'strong warrior,' and he is indeed fighting a great battle; the 2-month-old needs a new heart. Surrounded by stuffed animals, Kerrick waits at All Children's Hospital in St. Petersburg, his name on a waiting list for a transplant. "The average wait is six weeks for a heart transplant, but [the doctor] said it could be anywhere from one day to two months. And the longer they wait the more risk there is," explained Kendrick's mom, Rica. Kerrick made news the day he was born, when doctors implanted the world's smallest pacemaker in his chest to help his heart beat faster. A second surgery helped improve the blood flow from his heart to his lungs. "Basically, the doctors told us that they really didn't know what else to do after that point. His blockage was so bad that his heart was still not functioning properly," Rica continued.

    Historical Look at Heart Transplant
    The first human cardiac transplant was performed in January of 1964. The operation consisted of a chimpanzee's heart and although technically successful, the patient survived only a few short hours. In 1967, Dr. Christian Bernard from Cape Town, South Africa performed the first human-human heart transplant. He died of pneumonia but survived eighteen days before dying.

    Heart Transplant Surgery Patients with long-term heart failure who do not respond to medical treatment may be candidates for heart transplants. In heart transplant surgery, a patient's diseased heart is removed and replaced with a healthy human heart. Approximately 2,300 heart transplants are performed in the United States each year. While surgeons at the Columbia Weill Cornell Heart Institute have already performed more heart transplants than any other hospital over the last two decades, this type of surgery remains limited to the most severe cases, in part because there are not enough donor hearts available.
