Plastic surgery for heart patients can save them thousands of dollars
An Angioplastic heart surgeon in the US has saved the lives of a group of patients after using a heart transplant to restore their ability to pump blood.
The heart transplant was performed on a patient in Houston, Texas, who suffered from a severe heart defect that caused them to lose their ability of breathing.
It was the first of its kind in the world.
Dr David Buss, a plastic surgery resident at Northwestern University, was one of only a handful of plastic surgeons who had been able to perform the surgery.
“It’s the best surgery I’ve ever seen.” “

The patient’s life has been saved The procedure was performed in a hospital at Houston Methodist Medical Center, where Dr Buss was treating the patient.
The patient, identified as Tanya, was born with a congenital heart defect, which caused her to lose her ability to breathe and cause the heart to stop beating.
She has been in a coma since her heart was amputated.
Tanya had been on life support for four months before the heart transplant, and the surgeon had no choice but to remove her heart in order to get the transplant.
He described it as a “big victory”.
Dr Bux said: I didn’t know how many lives I would save, but this was the best decision I could make.
The operation had been scheduled for three weeks.
After a few hours of preparation, the heart was removed and the patient was fitted with a heart monitor.
The monitor measured the electrical activity of the heart’s muscle.
A specialist then inserted the heart into the patient’s heart and the blood pumped into it, restoring her ability of pumping blood.
After surgery, Tanya said: The operation was a real treat.
“I’m actually happy to be alive now, and I’m just so thankful that my doctors gave me a chance to get this surgery done.”
She is currently in recovery.
Dr Bus said: It’s like being a child again, it’s a little scary.
But I just want to give her all of the love and support she needs, so that she can have her full life.
