Abstract: OBJECTIVE: The aim of the study was to evaluate the patients who were submitted to heart transplantation due to congenital heart disease. MATERIAL AND METHODS: It was considered a retrospective analysis of the medical records of the patients who were submitted to heart transplantation at Heart Institute (InCor) University of Sao Paulo Medical School from 2002 through 2012. RESULTS: From 2002 through 2012, 115 patients have undergone heart transplantation at Heart Institute (InCor) University of Sao Paulo Medical School. Of those, 29 (25.2%) had congenital heart diseases, having one of them submitted to re-transplantation 9 yrs after transplantation. The mean age was 8.56 yrs old (range of 0.11–26.06). The assessed congenital heart diseases were: double outlet (three patients), hypoplastic heart syndrome (two patients), pulmonary atresia (two patients), ventricular septal defect (one patient), Ebstein anomaly (two patients),Uhl anomaly (one patient), congenital heart block (three patients), tetralogy of Fallot (one patient), av canal (one patient), complex congenital heart disease (12 patients). Twenty patients had submitted to cardiac surgery before transplantation. The mean ischemia time was 170.8 min. Thirteen patients (44.8%) died (due to surgical complications, heart failure due to acute rejection and multiple organ insufficiency). Mean follow-up period of 4.7 yrs. CONCLUSION: Heart transplantation is an indication for patients with congenital heart disease and allowed long term survival for this population.
