The Cardio VID Clinic is the first heart transplant center in Colombia. Was in the year 1985 when the first heart transplant was performed in the country and the third in Latin America.
Patients who benefit from a heart transplant are those who have no other alternative treatment, with a diagnosis of terminal heart failure; with intractable angina that cannot be revascularized surgically or percutaneously, or those with malignant arrhythmias that have a great deterioration in their quality of life, with limitation to carry out activities of daily living. For them, heart transplantation can give them the opportunity to return to a normal life.
