Acute cellular rejection in pediatric heart transplant recipients is associated with abnormal left ventricular mechanics by CMR

Abstract

Methods 18 combined cardiac magnetic resonance (CMR)/endomyocardial biopsies were performed in 14 HTX patients (11 male, age 13.9 ± 4.7 years (2.4-17.9 years); 1.2 ± 1.3 years (12 days-5.0 years) after HTX). Biventricular function and left ventricular (LV) circumferential strain, rotation and torsion by CMR were compared to 11 controls. To adjust for repeated measurements in 2 HTX patients, Wald-testing and Bayesian modeling were used for statistical analysis.
