As per available reports about 29 relevant Journals, 20 Conferences, 28 National symposiums are presently dedicated exclusively to heart transplant and about 1708 articles are being published on Heart Transplant.
A heart transplant, or a cardiac transplant , is a surgical transplant procedure performed on patients with end-stage heart failure or severe coronary artery disease. In this procedure patients own heart is either removed or, less commonly, left in place to support the donor heart. Post-operation survival periods average 15 years. The most common reason for heart transplant is the one or both ventricles have aren't functioning properly and severe heart failure is present. Ventricular failure can happen in many forms of congenital heart disease, but is more common in congenital defects with a single ventricle or if long-standing valve obstruction or leakage has led to irreversible heart failure. Patients who as children had the Fontan procedure, which helps complex congenital heart defects, may need a heart transplant because the blood flow through the venous system is slow and the veins are congested, which can lead to swelling, fluid accumulation, and protein loss.
OMICS International Organizes 1000+ Global Events Every Year across USA, Europe & Asia with support from 1000 more scientific societies and Publishes 700+ Open access journals which contains over 100000 eminent personalities, reputed scientists as editorial board and organizing committee members. The conference series website will provide you list and details about the conference organize worldwide.
Scope and importance:
For some children with heart disease, even the most aggressive treatment with medication or conventional cardiac surgery is not enough to restore health and maintain a good quality of life. These children may be considered for heart transplantation. Heart transplantation is not a cure, and late complications can occur. After transplantation, a child can develop an infection or rejection at any time; however, both become less likely after the first year. Children on chronic immunosuppressive medications are also at increased risk for developing cancer, especially a particular cancer of the blood stream called lymphoma. According to the ISHLT data, the risk of lymphoma in pediatric heart transplant patients is approximately eight percent at 10 years. Congenital malformations are still the most common indication for infant heart transplantation. Congenital cardiomyopathy occurs in approximately 1 in 10,000 live births. The most common indication for heart transplantation in older children is cardiomyopathy. The number of children who have failing cardiac function late after palliative surgery for congenital heart disease is increasing. An important example is so-called failed Fontan.
An estimated 10% of congenital heart disease cases have been deemed uncorrectable. One of the most common indications for infant heart transplantation had been hypoplastic left heart syndrome (HLHS), which occurs in about 1 in 6000 live births. HLHS has diminished as an indication for heart transplantation because of the limited donor supply and the improvements that have been achieved in the surgical palliative approach (ie, the Norwood procedure, with or without the Sano modification).
Approximately 4000 heart transplantation procedures are performed annually worldwide. In the United States, approximately 3000 patients are awaiting transplantation, but only 2000 patients undergo transplantation annually because of lack of donor hearts. Long-term outcomes after transplantation have improved with the advances made in transplant candidate selection, surgical techniques, immunosuppressive modalities, and postoperative care. The current survival rate after heart transplantation has been reported as approximately 50%.In carefully selected people, a heart transplant can be very successful. About 87 out of 100 people who have a heart transplant survive for at least 1 year. About 50 out of 100 survive 10 years.
