Discussion :

This man has Eisenmenger syndome. He is not a candidate for VSD repair alone. Iron supplementation is required because of iatrogenic iron deficiency and a relative anemia. He is seen as a candidate for eventual lung transplantation, although it's not clear (until his hemoglobin is corrected) how much of his recent deterioration was due to blood loss, and how much to progressive pulmonary vascular disease. Many of them will live until their 40s, 50s, and occasionally beyond. We would not wish to interface with such a prospect. Others will die suddenly without prior deterioration. Our focus is usually on quality of life, since markers for death are poorly defined. It should also be noted that outcome of transplantation in congenital heart disease are generally felt to be inferior to that of other conditions (e.g. dilated cardiomyopathy, CAD, primary lung disease).
