Heart Transplant

Heart transplant is a surgical procedure that is relevant to those with congenital heart diseases. It involves the donation of the heart from a donor to a recipient, the donor being usually deceased. Immunosuppressants are usually administered after the  surgery, during the period in which doctors wait to see whether the recipient will accept the graft or not.
