Abstract: OBJECTIVES: The aim of this study was to describe the need of stent for treatment of graft vascular disease in children submitted to hearttransplantation. MATERIAL AND METHODS: It was an observational study in a cohort of 115 patients who were submitted to heart transplantation at the Heart Institute (InCor) University of Sao Paulo Medical School. The data evaluated were: age, indication for transplantation, ischemic time and survival. RESULTS: From 1992 to 2012, 115 children were submitted to heart transplantation at our institution. There were 120 transplant procedures. Among these four had been submitted to percutaneus intervention for treatment of graft vascular disease. The mean age at time of the transplant was: 8.7 yrs. The period between the transplant and the stent procedure was from 1 to 8 yrs after the transplant. Three of these children died from 2 to 8 yrs after transplantation. CONCLUSION: Graft vascular disease is a severe complication after heart transplantation. Stent procedure can be an option, however other therapies need to be developed for this disease.
