Cedars-Sinai heart transplantation tip sheet
Date:4/24/2010

s not included in the Centers for Disease Control criteria for high-risk organ donation, half the patients who received hearts from homeless organ donors died within the first year of transplantation. Researchers believe that homelessness leads to poor hygiene and increased susceptibility to infections, which can affect organ recipients. Further study is needed to confirm whether homelessness should be added to the high-risk organ donation category. Embargo lifts 9:50 a.m. CDT April 22, 2020.

  • Patients who smoked prior to receiving a heart transplant experienced worse outcomes than patients who never smoked. Following transplant, 10 percent of patients who formerly smoked experienced non-fatal, major adverse cardiac events, such as a stroke or heart failure, compared to just 4 percent of transplant patients who never smoked. Embargo lifts 3 p.m. CDT April 22.

  • After reviewing 10-year survival and outcomes of 574 transplant patients, researchers found no difference in outcome for patients who received a heart from a donor of a different race. Embargo lifts noon CDT, April 23.

  • Transplant patients who receive donor hearts from the opposite gender typically have worse outcomes than patients who receive a heart from the same gender. Males who received hearts from males had a 69 percent survival rate 10 years after transplant, compared to 59 percent 10 year survival rate for males who received hearts from females. Females who received hearts from females had a 71 percent survival rate, compared to 58 percent for females who received hearts from males. Embargo lifts 2:30 p.m. CDT April 24.
