Heart Transplant Surgery

A heart transplant is a procedure that completely removes the diseased heart of a terminally ill heart failure patient who cannot otherwise be treated, and then completely replaces it with the heart of a healthy donor. In Korea, myocardial disease accounts for about 70% of all heart disease, and coronary artery disease accounts for less than 10%. It is difficult to expect any further improvement to be made in these figures caused by medical or surgical treatment. In the case of children, congenital heart malformation and myocardial disease are the main heart diseases.
