Early prediction of cardiac allograft vasculopathy and heart transplant failure.

Abstract

Early risk-prediction is essential to prevent cardiac allograft vasculopathy (CAV) and graft failure in heart transplant patients. We developed multivariate models to identify patients likely to experience CAV, severe CAV, and failure due to CAV, at 1, 5 and 10 years. A cohort of 172 patients was followed prospectively for 6.7 ± 3.9 years. Logistic… (More)
