    or How to Transplant a Heart in Nineteen Easy Steps

    by Rick Groleau
    OK, so there's really nothing humorous or easy about heart transplant surgery. Last year in the U.S., almost 800 men, women, and children died while waiting for suitable donor hearts. But despite this general shortage of hearts, the operation was (and is) routinely performed in American hospitals (During the same period, about 2,300 hearts were successfully transplanted.*) Lasting up to seven hours (and sometimes longer), the surgery is time-consuming and the work, intricate and involved. The step-by-step procedure, however, is fairly straightforward and not at all difficult to comprehend.
    Enter our virtual NOVA operating theatre, where you will be given a scalpel and perform a heart transplant of your own. Yes, our version of the operation has been greatly simplified. Nevertheless, all of the basic steps are outlined in this feature, and by the end of the operation, you will have a pretty good idea of what's involved in taking the heart of one human and making it work in another.
    Have no fear. The surgeons by your side will guide your every move and prevent you from taking any missteps.

    ne of the wonders of modern medical science is the ability to give someone a new heart. These heart transplants give new life to recipients who need them. Through their own deaths, donors provide new life to those who are dying.
    But these transplanted hearts will not last forever. They too will one day cease to beat. The life they give is only temporary.
    Have you ever wished you could have a new life. . . a life far different than one you have ever experienced?
    Are you in pain, bored, without purpose, addicted, hopeless, lonely or afraid of dying?

Description Return to top Heart transplants are the fourth most common (corneas, kidneys and liver are the most common) transplant operations in the U.S. (over 2,200 cases per year). A healthy heart is obtained from a donor who has suffered brain death but remains on life-support. The healthy heart is transported in a special solution that preserves the organ. While the patient is deep asleep and pain-free (general anesthesia), an incision is made through the breast bone (sternum). The patient's blood is re-routed through tubes to a heart-lung bypass machine to keep the blood oxygen-rich and circulating. The patient's diseased heart is removed and the donor heart is stitched in place. Indications Return to top A heart transplant may be recommended for: Heart failure caused by
