In brief: Donor shortage

Heart failure patients are waiting many months for a matching donor heart after being listed as a suitable candidate.

In brief: Medical Complexity

In order for the best results to help the most needy patients, selection of both donor hearts and recipients with end stage cardiac disease is complex.
It is also essential that the recipient becomes their own health advocate, and be responsible to take their anti-rejection medications and adhere to the follow-up regimen of the transplant program.
