BACKGROUND Cardiac allograft vasculopathy remains the leading limitation to long-term survival after cardiac transplantation. While the influence of donor and recipient gender in the pathogenesis of cardiac vasculopathy is still poorly understood, studies have indicated that female allografts may be at higher risk for the development of cardiac allograft vasculopathy. The purpose of this study was to characterize the influence of donor and recipient gender on the early genesis of cardiac… CONTINUE READING
