I have a heart condition and need to have a liver transplant but they think my heart might not take it and it may be too much. I have transposition of the heart when I was 2 Im 33 now I would like to know if you heard of anyone having a similar procedure and how it went. thankyou A33
i do not think that this in itself is a contraindication for liver transplantation assuming that the heart function is OK. Unequivocally you need to be seen by a large liver transplant center and be assessed by their cardiologist and transplant anesthesiologist.
