Heart transplantation

Abstract

Heart transplantation has long been an acceptable form of pediatric therapy for end-stage heart failure secondary to genetic or acquired cardiomyopathy. Other indications include heart failure after palliation of congenital heart disease or for congenital heart disease not amenable to standard surgical approaches. Over the decades, survival outcome after pediatric heart transplantation has improved. Optimal post-transplant outcome can be attributed to all phases of care including the identification, evaluation, and care of the pre-transplant candidate, intra-operative and immediate post-operative approaches, and long-term management.
