abstract

  • Coronary revascularization may be an effective palliative therapy in suitable cardiac transplant recipients. Angioplasty has an acceptable survival in patients without angiographic distal arteriopathy. Because few patients underwent atherectomy and coronary bypass surgery, assessment of these procedures is limited. Angiographic distal arteriopathy is associated with decreased allograft survival in patients requiring revascularization.
