Özet

Pediatric heart transplantation is indicated with end-stage heart failure or complex inoperable congenital heart defects. In this article, we report the first youngest (2 years old) successfully pediatric heart transplantation after 25 years compared to literature indicating limited pediatric donor pool and trained surgeon team. Our experience suggests that heart transplantation of pediatric patients requires multidisciplinary collaboration.
