Based on own experiences with heart transplantation problems of isotopic and heterotopic transplants are discussed. Technical difficulties occurred especially in isotopic heart transplantations of dogs. Heterotopic transplants are easier to perform and show response to immunsuppressive therapy. By using Azathiprine a rejection crisis could be delayed but not prevented. The problem of effective immunsuppression seems to be unsolved.
