Patient's Guide to Heart Transplant Surgery
Participation in Research Studies
Both before and after your transplant, you may be asked to participate in various research studies. All studies performed at the USC University Hospital involving transplant patients are extremely important to the care of all patients, now and in the future. Please note that your willingness to participate in these studies will not affect your care in the transplant program in any way. We ask for your participation and consent in these endeavors.
For more information on participating in research studies, please visit Cardiothoracic Surgery Clinical Trials.
