The acute abdominal complications in the cardiac transplant recipients represents a big challenge, demanding an early diagnosis due to its high mortality (20-25%). Most of them occur on the first 30 postoperative days, when other events can make the appropriate diagnosis more difficult (1-3).
We report the case of cecal volvulus in the early postoperative period of a cardiac transplant patient, and a critical review.
