Abstract

End-stage allograft failure following cardiac transplantation is a devastating problem, and retransplantation offers the only chance for survival. We present the case of a young man with a failing cardiac allograft who underwent allograft cardiectomy, atrial pouch formation, and biventricular assist device (BiVAD) placement as a salvage maneuver.
