Heart Transplant (End stage)
I would like to know, how a person with heart failure, lung collapsed, kidney not functioning well, would survive? what is the rate of survival? and that person has done a biventricular pacing surgery. right now in a very critical state. what is the cost for check up after heart transplant according to this person's condition? would there be any chance, the person will get back in normal? I heard of that person's doctor to do VAD but doing VAD will risk the person's life as well. and the cost is unbelievably high.


This discussion is related to Life Expectancy after Transplant.

What was the cause for the heart failure?
The ventricle assist device, is it to assist until a donor is available, or is it hoped it may assist with some recovery, enough to keep the existing heart?

ohh , and they didn't do the VAD . due to lots of infections spreading and he's in a state of a very high fever . nevertheless , he had seizures also :S
it was mainly for making it as a bridge while waiting for the heart transplant . but right now , they're just going to hold onto that biventricular pacing .
a person with such , would not even live long after heart transplant ?
