Abstract

Coronary atherosclerosis remains a significant cause of morbidity and mortality following cardiac transplantation. Coronary artery bypass grafting, percutaneous transluminal coronary angioplasty, and directional coronary atherectomy have all been presented as attempted treatment options in this population with generally suboptimal results. Endovascular stenting is a new transcatheter treatment modality with unique potential advantages as compared to other transcatheter revascularization techniques. This report presents the use of endovascular stenting and 6-mo follow-up in two orthotopic cardiac transplant recipients with proximal stenotic posttransplant graft atherosclerosis.
