Indications for Heart Transplantation

A simple description of main indications, anatomy, and other general information can be found on the NIH Medline website. The main factors bringing transplantation as an option into the picture are patients with New York Heart Association (NYHA) Class III or IV congestive heart failure, intractable arrhythmias or severe ischemic heart disease who are expected to live less than one year without a transplant.
