PRADO, Bárbara Catarina da Cunha; LOPES, Sandra Ribeiro de Almeida  e  SANT'ANA, Juliana Stella. Teenagers with heart diseases and their mothers' prospects after transplantation. Rev. SBPH [online]. 2015, vol.18, n.1, pp. 5-38. ISSN 1516-0858.

This research aimed to understand how the heart transplant interferes with teenagers' future prospects and their mothers. This is a qualitative-exploratory study performed with 09 transplanted teenagers and their mothers. An openly interview and a timeline technique were used for the purpose of data collection. It was possible to identify that while the future prospect is uncertain for the youngs, it is non-existent for the mothers, and that the psychic experience associated with a cardiopathy is a shared and intense suffering of the mother and the teenager. Futhermore, it was observed that mothers do not get back to their everyday activities after their child's transplant, dedicating themselves wholly to the child care. It was concluded that the transplant in the young's life generates large emotional impact, especially regarding the identity building, body image definition and normality concept.
