Faustão is hospitalized in São Paulo and must undergo new surgery six months after a heart transplant

Presenter Fausto Silva, 73 years old, was admitted this Monday to Hospital Israelita Albert Einstein, in São Paulo, six months after undergoing a heart transplant, in the same place. Faustão had kidney problems and there is a possibility that the presenter will undergo further surgery. The information is from Folha de São Paulo.

Why did Faustão need a transplant?

Faustão had been admitted to the Einstein Intensive Care Unit (ICU) on August 5 last year, to treat heart failure. He needed to undergo dialysis sessions. Therefore, he joined the transplant queue to receive a new heart. The presenter was in second place, according to the São Paulo State Transplant Center, when he was called for surgery.

Shortly after hospitalization, Fausto Silva’s wife, Luciana Cardoso, created an Instagram profile to encourage organ donation, called “Faustão do meu coração”. He was knocked down by the platform, but later returned to the air.
