Transplant Surgeries :
Heart Transplant : A heart transplant is an open heart surgery performed on patients with last stage heart failure and or severely coronary artery disease. It is a process in which the doctor removes the diseased heart with the donor heart. Heart transplant is usually done when the heart gets damaged and is unable to pump enough blood to meet the body's requirements. The situation for heart transplant comes when all other treatments fails. Heart donors are usually those people who are brain dead or on the life support system. Their healthy heart are put into the special solution that preserve that organ.

Heart transplant is a simple surgery for the cardiac surgeons. The patients is first put into the deep sleep with general anesthesia. Than the damaged heart is removed from the patient body, which is difficult process. If there has been any previous surgery, than cutting through the scar tissue may complicate the whole process of removing the heart. Thereafter the donor's heart is replaced in place of the patient heart. Today this operation involves the creation of only five stitches or anastomoses. Through these five lines blood vessels are connected which enter and leave the heart. People who receive heart transplant are required to live in the hospital for approximately 10 days.

Liver Transplant : Liver transplantation is a surgical transplantation procedure which involves replacement of a diseased liver with the healthy liver from an organ donor. Ninety percent of the liver transplantation are performed on a person with end stage liver disease and acute liver failure. The most common technique used in the liver transplantation is called orthotopic transplantation in which the patient's liver is removed and the donor liver is placed at the same anatomic location as the original liver. Most of the liver transplants are done in cases of cirrhosis, a disease in which all the liver cells are killed and replaced by scar tissue. Survival rate for the liver transplant patient has consequently increased in the last few years. But according to the latest research people who have undergone liver transplantations are at greater risk of developing non Hodgkin's lymphoma and colorectal cancer.
