Abstract

Between November 1985 and September 1994, 254 orthotopic heart transplantation were carried out; 186 (72.4%) had initial cardiac operation (group I), 71 (27.6 %) had previous cardiac surgery (group II). Mean age of group was 45.9, and 48.6 in group II (p=0.004). Preoperative clinical and hemodynamic conditions were similar between two groups. Significantly longer CPB and duration of operation was found in group II. Operative mortality in group I was 9 % and in group II 7% (p=NS). As a far a surgical complications and duration in ICU no differences were encountered. At follow-up (1-108 months, mean 36±29) in group II a significantly minor number of rejections was registered (3.6±2.3% Vs 47±2.8%, p
