Heart Transplant Programs When the Medical College of Ohio performed northwest Ohio's first heart transplant in May 1988, it was the latest in a long line of pioneering advances in surgical and medical care for residents of northwest Ohio and southeastern Michigan. As northwest Ohio's only solid organ transplant center, MCO has earned an outstanding reputation in patient care, research, and education in heart transplantation.
More than 100 heart transplants have been performed at MCO since 1988, with a one-year survival rate of 90 percent, higher than the national average of 84 percent.

Holub, Miroslav Heart Transplant
Genre Poem Keywords Heart Disease Medical Advances Surgery Technology Summary In typically terse poetic structure, utilizing fresh new images, Holub visualizes removal and replacement of a human heart during a transplant procedure. He describes the throb of the extracorporeal circulation mechanics as an "inaudible New World Symphony" as he elevates the imagery of the hole in the chest where once resided the "king of Blood" transiently into the cosmos. With the arrival of the "new heart," the imagery again becomes earth bound: the structure is sewn in place, the beats resume and the "curves jump like / synthetic sheep" as the EKG rhythm resumes. Commentary In this poem, Holub stays much closer to a description of an actual event than he does in his more dramatically metaphorical pieces. The differences are twofold: the absolute technical wonderment of the achievement is so understated as to be most effective; and the images used, though refreshing, are crystal clear. For example, watch the QRS complex on an EKG screen and you will see sheep jumping in lines and in perfect rhythmas an emblem of the victory of both "life and spirit."

... Mississippi News February 21, 2003 Heart transplant pioneer dies at 84
  • 1964 operation made history By Pamela Berry The Clarion-Ledger file photo Dr. James Hardy, On Wednesday, the world-renowned surgeon died peacefully in his sleep at St. Catherine's Village retirement home in Madison surrounded by his four daughters. He was 84. Hardy's surgical team at the University of Mississippi Medical Center transplanted the heart of a chimpanzee into a dying man. The patient lived for 90 minutes following the surgery. A year earlier, Hardy's team transplanted the world's first human lung into another human, but it was the 1964 heart transplant that earned him global recognition. The UMC heart surgery came three years before Dr. Christiaan Barnard performed the first human-to-human heart transplant. "He's a local hero," said Dr. Richard Yelverton, a general surgeon at the Lakeland Surgical Clinic who was trained by Hardy and helped organize the James D. Hardy Society, a group of surgeons who studied under Hardy and who meet each year to honor him. "Above all, he was a gentleman, very strict and demanding as far as the quality of work you did." Friends, students and colleagues of Hardy said the historic surgeon felt deeply about the need to find solutions to medical problems by conducting research and later translating that to patient care.

    Judge rejects plea of convicted marijuana grower who fears jail time will kill him.
    By Denny Walsh Bee Staff Writer
    Get weekday updates of Sacramento Bee headlines and breaking news. Sign up here. Peter Ballinger, a heart transplant patient terrified of dying in custody, was sentenced Wednesday in Sacramento federal court to a mandatory minimum five years in prison for growing more than 100 marijuana plants. "If he dies in prison, it's of his own making," U.S. District Judge William B. Shubb told heartbroken defense attorney Linda Harter, who had accused the judge of having a "suspicious mind" and had called the sentence "a travesty." She filed a notice of appeal later in the day.

    Heart Transplant Criteria Patient selection is a key determinant to patient survival. Unfortunately, many end-stage heart patients are not candidates for transplantation. Appropriate selection is paramount in the best interest of the patient and the health of the transplant program. Indications
    Any end-stage heart disease with a limited prognosis (i.e. less than 60 percent survival rate for one year). Typical patterns follow:
    • Ventricular dysrhythmias not responsive to medical therapy and/or AICD implantation
    • Ischemic heart disease not manageable by medications, PTCA or conventional coronary artery bypass surgery wherein the long-term prognosis is poor and the patient is symptomatic
    • Valvular heart disease not amenable to medical or surgical therapy
    • Restrictive disease not amenable to medical or surgical therapy
      There are specific contraindications, absolute and relative, that may adversely affect a patient's candidacy.
    Absolute Contraindications
    • Age greater than 67 years
    • Pulmonary artery hypertension with pulmonary vascular resistance greater than six Wood units
    • Infection or sepsis
    • Positive HIV antibody
    • Irreversible hepatic or renal dysfunction
    • Ventilatory support
    • Recent substance abuse

Today, the USC Multi-Organ Transplant Program , consisting of heart lung liver kidney and pancreas transplant, offers such patients a second chance at life and better health. The Transplant Program has earned a reputation of technical excellence, cutting-edge research and high success rates. A world pioneer in live-donor transplants, the Program offers a unique service: Patients with one or more family members willing to donate a lung lobe, kidney or a portion of a liver may have the procedures performed when the need presents itself, without waiting for a cadaveric organ. USC doctors also are known for advances in transfusion-free medicine and surgery. USC transplant surgeries take place at several facilities, including:
    • USC University Hospital
    • USC/Norris Comprehensive Cancer Center
    • Childrens Hospital Los Angeles
    • The Doheny Eye Institute
    To create a complete teaching and research institution, teams of highly skilled and experienced specialists from a wide variety of disciplines come together to best meet the needs of patients and their families. The teams perform hundreds of transplants every year-each carried out and followed up with personal care and medical treatment that ensures the best experience and the greatest chance of success.

    Specialty section of University website provides consumer and professional information addressing heart, liver, lung, kidney, bone marrow and pancreas transplant programs.
    Ranked among the busiest solid organ transplant centers in the country, Emory University has become a regional multi-organ transplant center serving the needs of both adult and pediatric patients with end-organ disease. The rich history of clinical transplantation at Emory began in 1947 with the performance of Georgia's first corneal transplant at Emory University Hospital . Knowledge and techniques continued to develop, and Emory's transplant program expanded to include solid organ transplantation in 1966 with the performance of Georgia's first kidney transplant at Emory University Hospital. In the late 1970s, the bone marrow transplant program at Emory was initiated. Rapid growth characterized the 1980's: the performance of kidney transplants increased dramatically, the heart transplant program began in 1985 and the liver transplant service was launched in 1987. Beginning in 1989 with the addition of the simultaneous kidney-pancreas operation to the program, Emory began offering multi-organ transplantation in various combinations, from heart-lung to heart-kidney. Emory transplant teams also perform pediatric transplants at Children's Healthcare of Atlanta at Egleston , the university's pediatric affiliate.

    135. Pulmonary Hypertension PH, PPH, Congenital Heart Lung Defect, HELP
    Information about this 4 year old who has Pulmonary Hypertension, a Congenital heart Lung Defect. heart lung transplant will be needed in the future.
    I am Roosje Smid - I have Pulminary Hypertension
    The girl you see on the picture is the almost 7 year old Roosje Smid, she has a unique congenital heart lung defect which results in a life threatening high blood pressure especially in the lung arteries. This defect is known as (Primary) Pulmonary Hypertension or PH / PPH . Today we know that Roos has Secondairy Pulmonary Hypertension. In Roos' case the defect is at least caused by the fact that the upper half of the arteries in the lungs that assimilate the oxygen from the air into the blood, have not been formed. Instead of these arteries extra (so called aberrant) arteries have been formed between the short and long blood circulation system, which is the cause for the high blood pressure in Roosjes lungs (around a factor of 4 above normal levels). Against this high pressure her heart has to work. It is beyond saying that eventually this little heart will lose this struggle. When this congenital defect was discovered at the age of 4 months, the lungs had already lost all their elasticity (compare this with an airballoon which had been filled with air for a long time) and the only hope was that her situation would remain stable - which it is up till today. The only thing which can save her today is a heart lung transplant, which is - of course - a very dangerous operation. However, the longer she will be able to fight this battle the further the medical sciences will develop and the better her future will be.

    Doctors transplant muscle cells to patient's failing heart
    PHILADELPHIA, Pennsylvania (AP) For the first time, doctors have transplanted a patient's own skeletal muscle onto his heart to see if similar tissue could one day be used to treat heart disease. Under the procedure, a small amount of muscle from a patient's arm was removed, grown in a lab for two weeks and then grafted to his heart. The 48-year-old patient is awaiting a heart transplant.
