Abstract

This case illustrates the successful use of orthotopic heart transplantation for the treatment of plastic bronchitis in a 6-year-old boy with hypoplastic left heart syndrome, which developed 2 years after Fontan procedure. Transplantation was undertaken after he failed medical management of airway obstruction. He is currently 1-year post-cardiac transplantion and has no evidence of plastic bronchitis despite weaning of an aggressive airway clearance regimen.
