Bangalore October 10, 2023:    A 61-year-old patient was brought into Aster CMI hospital with a history of heart failure and he was diagnosed with dilated cardiomyopathy and advanced heart failure six months ago.

The heart was transported on Tuesday early morning from Sparsh Hospital, RR Nagar to Aster CMI Hospital, Hebbal. The team transporting the organ covered a distance of 24 km in a span of 35 minutes, which happened around 5:00 a.m. 

The heart retrieval and transplant procedure was performed by a team led by Prof. Dr. Nagamalesh U M, Lead Consultant - Cardiology, Interventional Cardiologist, Aster CMI Hospital, Bangalore and Director - Heart Failure, Transplant & MCS Program, Aster Hospitals, Bangalore along with Dr. Ganesh Krishnan Iyer, Lead Consultant – CTVS Surgery, Dr. Divakar Bhat, Dr. Arul Dominic Furtado, Dr. Prashanth Ramamurthy and Dr. Prashanth Y M.
