Heart Transplantation is considered the definitive treatment of advanced heart failure and is performed when the patient does not respond to treatment or conventional surgery.

Heart Transplantation explained in first person

Professionals and patients explain how you live with the disease
Do not give up! At times, it may seem like a mountain to climb, and a high one at that, but you shouldn’t give up, just keep going. What is most important is that an offer comes in and you recover well. You have to have hope and never give up.
Don't be afraid, we have great professionals, we are in the best hospitals in the world and things are going well. And that a transplant gives you a very, very, very good quality of life.
