research about heart transplant @JordAnrt

Aliciaa:

A heart transplant is an operation to replace a damaged or failing heart with a healthy heart from a donor who has recently passed away.It also may be recommended when a person's life is at risk because their heart no longer works effectively. To have a heart transplant, you may have a heart attack, viral infection of the heart muscles, high blood pressure, heart valve disease, heart defects present at birth, irregular heart beats, alcoholism, drug use, and many more. Did you know, most patients with end-stage heart failure will live no longer than 6 months? Patients should not be automatically shut out because they didn't meet a certain set of criteria. One of the most common complications of a heart transplant is rejection of the donor heart. The immune system recognises the transplanted heart as foreign to the body and attacks it. Usually, rejection occurs in days, weeks, or months after a transplant. It could also happen years later.
