A cardiac replacement was a medical procedure which replaced the heart with a parthenogenetic implant. The mortality rate for such a procedure using Van Doren's technique was less than 2.4% by 2365. In 2365, Doctor Pulaski ordered Captain Picard to undergo a cardiac replacement at Starbase 515 in order to repair a prior faulty replacement. (TNG: "Samaritan Snare") In 2374, Ishka suffered a possible heart attack or cardiac arrest and had to be given a new heart by Doctor Bashir.
