Abstract

This continues to be an exciting time for pediatric heart transplantation. Since the first orthotopic heart transplantation a little over 50 years ago, the field has grown tremendously, including many advancements in the application of this therapy to children. Today, heart transplantation is performed routinely in many pediatric centers throughout the world with over 100 centers reporting to the International Thoracic Transplant Registry. The Registry is the largest source of worldwide data on pediatric heart transplantation with over 14,000 transplants reported in children. The focus theme for this year’s report is donor and recipient size match.
