Caption: Heart for transplant. Surgeon's gloved hands holding a donated human heart packaged for transport to a transplant recipient. Only patients with irremediable heart disease such as advanced coronary heart disease receive a heart transplant. Organ transfers between hospitals are often needed for transplant operations. This is because organ transplants are most successful when the donor and the recipient share most of the same tissue- types. This has led to matching between donors and recipients at different hospitals.
