Ventricular assist devices and transplantation for adults with congenital heart disease

Chapter

Abstract

  • Patients with congenital heart disease pose a unique challenge to the transplant surgeon often due to prior complex reconstructive procedures and/or abnormalities in systemic and pulmonary venous return. Options for mechanical assistance of advanced heart failure in this population as well as considerations regarding operative technique required at the time of cardiac transplant are discussed.
