Case Reports Journal Article --- Old month value: Jan
A 49-year-old man had progressive low cardiac output syndrome after mitral valve repair combined with a maze operation. A biventricular assist device was implanted and, finally, emergency orthotopic heart transplantation was performed. The multiple incisions, especially right atrial incisions, were successfully avoided by heart transplantation with bicaval anastomoses.
