Abstract
During the first 40 months of the new Heart Transplantation Program (September 1985 until December 1988) a total of a 160 patients were evaluated for transplantation at the University Hospital in Zurich. 50 patients eventually came to heart transplantation, while one patient underwent a heart-lung transplant. In the same period 9 patients accepted for transplantation died on the waiting list before transplantation. All 50 hearts were transplanted orthotopically. Follow-up treatment, immunosuppression and diagnostics for rejection are described. There was no operative mortality in this group. Two patients died early and three died late. For the first consecutive 50 heart transplant patients, showing a total of 732 patient months, actuarial survival was calculated at 90.1% at one and two years, and at 79.5% at three years. "Enlarged Heart Transplantation Program" describes some of the secondary activities spurred by the new Heart Transplantation Program.
