Heart transplantation for congenital heart disease

World Journal for Pediatric & Congenital Heart Surgery
Linda B Pauliks, Akif Undar

Abstract

Congenital heart disease affects 0.8% of all live-born infants. Some of the malformed hearts can at best be palliated by conventional surgical or catheter interventions from the start. Others fail slowly from chronic overloading. Patients with congenital heart disease have been among the first transplant recipients since 1967. Primary therapy with infant heart transplant is a convincing concept from an immunological perspective but large-scale implementation is limited by donor organ shortages. Another growing area is rescue therapy for older patients with end-stage heart failure after palliative procedures, particularly those with single-ventricle hearts, systemic right ventricles, and associated arrhythmias.

Arrhythmia

Arrhythmias are abnormalities in heart rhythms, which can be either too fast or too slow. They can result from abnormalities of the initiation of an impulse or impulse conduction or a combination of both. Here is the latest research on arrhythmias.

Atrial Fibrillation

Atrial fibrillation is a common arrhythmia that is associated with substantial morbidity and mortality, particularly due to stroke and thromboembolism. Here is the latest research.
