Abstract

Although Chagas disease is a rare entity in North America, it is associated with significant cardiac morbidity. It is estimated that 20-30% of those who are infected will eventually develop cardiovascular disease secondary to Chagas disease. We review the literature and share our experience on the surgical management of this challenging patient population.
