Abstract
Liberalization of stringent guidelines regarding donor selection is acceptable in the case of critical recipient condition. Few cardiac allografts with preexisting accessory atrioventricular pathways have been implanted. We describe the successful radiofrequency modification of the atrioventricular node and ablation of an accessory pathway after cardiac transplantation. Although the previously healthy donor had no history of arrhythmia, the recipient's postoperative course was characterized by multiple bouts of reentry tachycardia. The highly successful catheter-based ablation techniques available to cure this condition favor the use of donor hearts with a preexisting accessory pathway.
