Orthotopic cardiac transplant and straight-back syndrome: A case report

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Straight-back syndrome is a common malformation of the thoracic spine that is associated with a marked decrease in the anterior-posterior intrathoracic cavitary space. The authors describe their experience with a patient with straight-back syndrome who required orthotopic cardiac transplantation. Minor modification of the procurement and surgical procedure was required to facilitate graft implantation without cardiac compression.
