Primary graft dysfunction after heart transplantation: Incidence, trends and associated risk factors
from American Journal of Transplantation
Changes in heart transplant (HT) donor and recipient demographics may influence the incidence of primary graft dysfunction (PGD). We conducted a retrospective study to evaluate PGD incidence, trends, and associated risk factors by analyzing consecutive adult patients who underwent HT between January 2009 and December 2014 at our institution. Patients were categorized as having PGD using the International Society of Heart and Lung Transplantation defined criteria.
