Heart and Lungs transplant

Why needed?

 Severe end-stage heart failure is the primary indication for heart transplantation, where the heart's ability to effectively pump blood to all body tissues is severely compromised. Heart transplants are typically reserved for individuals whose failing hearts have not shown improvement with medications or other surgical interventions.

Chronic obstructive lung diseases, such as emphysema, are the most common reasons for lung transplantation. Additionally, there are individuals who are born with conditions that result in lung failure.

In general, transplantation is considered for individuals whose heart or lung condition significantly impairs their daily functioning, and when medical treatments and lifestyle changes have proven ineffective in improving their condition.
