What is the Prognosis after a Heart Transplant?

The prognosis after a heart transplant can vary depending on factors such as:

  • the recipient’s overall health
  • the quality of the donor’s heart
  • adherence to post-transplant medication and lifestyle recommendations

With advancements in surgical techniques, immunosuppressive therapies, and post-transplant care, many recipients can expect a significant improvement in their quality of life and survival rates. However, regular medical monitoring and adherence to medication regimens are essential for long-term success.
