Endomyocardial biopsy in the heterotopic heart transplant patient.

We present a technique for rapid and easy endomyocardial biopsy of the heterotopic transplanted heart. With a recent resurgence in heterotopic heart transplantation, we believe that ours is a sound technique in obtaining both routine surveillance biopsies as well as evaluating "right-sided pressures" in the "piggy-back" heart.
