This study compared the early clinical course of 9 pediatric heart transplantation recipients treated with cyclosporine A-based immunosuppression with 10 similarly aged recipients treated with tacrolimus- based therapy. One-year follow-up after transplantation revealed that tacrolimus-treated children had similar left ventricular function, experienced fewer episodes of severe rejection, were more rapidly weaned from corticosteroids, and had relatively few side effects from immunosuppression compared with cyclosporine A-treated children.
