Heart Transplantation

Heart Transplant

Pediatric heart transplant is a surgical procedure performed to replace a diseased heart with a healthy one from another person. Heart transplant is recommended for children who have serious heart dysfunction and will not be able to live without having the heart replaced. Some of the illnesses that affect the heart in this way include complex congenital heart disease and cardiomyopathy.
