Abstract

We describe a patient who, during an episode of acute cardiac rejection, developed such severe systolic dysfunction that there was transient near-adynamic function of the right ventricle. This right ventricular dysfunction was reflected hemodynamically by the unusual finding of atrialization of right ventricular pressures. The patient's cardiac function returned to normal after treatment with extensive immunotherapy.
