MUHC announces a transplant first in Quebec

ys," says Dr. Nadia Gianetti, Medical Director the Heart Failure and Heart Transplant Program at the MUHC. "The seamless collaboration between the cardiac and liver transplant teams at the MUHC is one of many reasons why the planning, surgery, and follow-up care of Mr. Dionne was so straightforward and uncomplicated." The patient has now fully recovered and is again living a full and rich life. "I am extremely impressed with the doctors at the MUHC; from the onset I had unquestioned confidence in their ability to perform this complex surgery," says Patrice Dionne. "I'm so thankful that I will now be able to enjoy this fathers day with my three sons."

"As a comprehensive Multi-Organ Transplant Program, we are accustomed to collaborating with other institutions across Quebec and other provinces for this form of highly specialized patient care," says Dr. Renzo Cecere, Surgical Director of Heart Failure and Heart Transplantation at the MUHC. "We are particularly pleased to have specialists from every discipline with a strong interest in transplantation, allowing us to successfully offer combined organ transplants within one institution."

The world's first heart transplant was conducted less than forty years ago; complex combined transplants have only been conducted since the 1980's. Multi-organ transplants, such as the combined heart-liver transplant conducted at the MUHC require a multi-specialized team, consisting of cardiologists, hepatologists, intensive care specialists, anesthesiologists, nurses, physiotherapists and Transplant Quebec coordinators. Combined heart-liver transplants are rare--only a few successful procedures have been performed in Canada, and this is the first in Quebec.
