Abstract

Orthotopic heart transplantation was performed in a 65-year-old man with a donor heart with Wolff-Parkinson-White Syndrome. An electrophysiologic study performed 7 days after transplantation showed a left-lateral accessory pathway that exhibited only anterograde conduction. Radiofrequency ablation of the bypass tract was successfully performed, and no evidence of recurrence was found at 12 months' follow-up. We suggest that potential donors with known electrophysiologic abnormalities that are amenable to catheter ablation techniques should be considered for orthotopic heart transplantation, thus broadening the potential donor pool.
