Abstract

to determine I-month and I-year survival rate in recipients of heart transplants in Imam Khomeini Medical Center.
Methods: we analyzed the outcomes of 69 patients who underwent heart transplantation between 2007 and 2010. The 1-month and 1-year survival rates were calculated, and we assessed prognostic factors such as donor and recipient age and sex, graft ischemic time during surgery, and liver and kidney function tests.
Results: increased donor age had a significant negative effect on survival rate (p=0.005). Sex differences between donor and recipient had no association with transplant outcome and survival rate. The overall 1-month and 1-year survival was 82.6% (n=54) and 70% (n=48), respectively.
Conclusion: heart transplantation is a lifesaving procedure for and-stage heart disorders. Mortality after heart transplantation depends on numerous factors, and thus survival rates differ among centers. The 1-month and 1-year survival rates after heart transplantation in our center currently stand at 82.6% and 70% respectively
