BACKGROUND Chronic rejection (CR) also called cardiac allograft vasculopathy (CAV) is, besides infections and malignant tumors, the leading cause of death during the late period of post-heart transplant. PATIENTS AND METHODS In this paper, we present a series of seven cases with chronic post-transplant cardiac rejection in the light of our experience(More)
