Heart-Kidney Transplantation in a Transgender Woman (JACC Case Reports December 2022)
Heart-Kidney Transplantation in a Transgender Woman

We describe care of a transgender woman with heart failure who underwent heart-kidney transplantation. Peri-operative management of hormone therapy, considerations for future gender-affirming surgeries, and psychosocial aspects of care are discussed. Interdisciplinary collaboration is essential when treating patients with advanced heart failure in the setting of gender-affirming therapies
