Heart transplantation has become standard therapy for end-stage heart failure in children with cardiomyopathy as well as complex congenital heart disease, and has a significant effect on survival and quality of life. The indications for listing and referral for transplantation are outlined. Evaluation for heart transplantation is discussed, including full pretransplant assessment. ABO incompatible listing and HLA sensitization are discussed, and listing algorithms are outlined for different countries.
