The Oregon Cardiac Transplant Program provides a regional service.
Since December 4,1985,284 patients, including 14 children, from Oregon, Washington, Idaho, Alaska, and Hawaii, underwent 295 orthotopic heart transplantation procedures at the Oregon Health Sciences University.
Detailed, up-to-date follow-up data were available on all patients.
All patients have been followed up prospectively for transplant-related complications.
The most common recipient diagnoses were coronary artery disease (50%) or idiopathic cardiomyopathy (33%). The mean age of the recipients was 48 ± 15 years (range, 3 months to 68 years).
Donor hearts were retrieved from a procurement area of a 1,500-mile radius that involved Oregon, Washington, Idaho, Nevada, Utah, California, and Canada.
The mean donor age was 28 ± 11 years and the donor heart ischemia time was 180 ± 56 minutes.
The median recipient waiting time was 75 days.
Operative mortality was 6%. One-year, 5-year, and 10-year actuarial patient survival rates are 86 ± 2%, 74 ± 3%, and 59 ± 5%, respectively.
The majority of survivors are in very good functional status.
Now, more than 10 years into its existence, the Oregon Heart Transplant Program has fulfilled its goal of providing a most effective treatment option for patients with end-stage heart disease in the region.
