Abstract

Over the past 12 months, The Registry of the International Society for Heart and Lung Transplantation added 20 new transplantation programs and a total of 7073 additional thoracic organ recipients. All of the national and multinational registries are now fully integrated into our registry, and electronic data submission via the Internet will be instituted by mid 1998 for those centers not participating in larger registries. For the first time, the entire data set was used to calculate multivariate risks rather than the U.S. data set alone, and we have continued to extend the time frame for both univariate and multivariate analyses. For this report, risk factors for 5-year outcome and morbidity at 3 years are presented.
