Abstract

Infants with dextrocardia-heterotaxy syndrome pose significant surgical challenges to a successful orthotopic heart transplant. Herein we report on 2 infants with dextrocardia-heterotaxy syndrome who underwent complex heart transplantation. A combination of preoperative 3-dimensional chest computed tomography to predict optimal donor size and unique surgical technique resulted in successful outcomes.
