Identification of heart transplant recipients at highest risk for a poor outcome could lead to improved posttransplantation survival. A chart review of primary heart transplantations from 1993 to 2006 was performed. Analysis was performed to evaluate the risk of graft loss for those with a transplantation age less than 1 year, congenital heart disease (CHD), elevated pulmonary vascular resistance (index > 6), positive panel reactive antibody or crossmatch, liver or renal dysfunction, mechanical… CONTINUE READING
