Abstract

Cardiovascular diseases represent the leading cause of mortality in patients with Marfan syndrome. Many treatments have been developed for patients with end-stage heart failure, among which orthotopic heart transplantation remains the gold standard. We report a successful orthotopic heart transplantation for a Marfan syndrome patient in end-stage heart failure.
