Between October 1997 and December 2000, a total of 7 pediatric patients with end-stage dilated cardiomyopathy (DCM) were referred to our service for heart transplantation; non-transplant cardiac surgery was offered as a biologic bridge. Two patients died before surgery and the in-hospital surgical mortality rate was 50%: 75% in 4 patients who received emergency surgery and 0% in 2 patients who received urgent surgery. Non-transplant cardiac surgery improved clinical outcome and acted as a biologic bridge, instead of a mechanical bridge, to heart transplantation in small children with DCM and severe heart failure.
