Data forms were submitted to the Registry regarding pretransplantation diagnoses, causes of death, rehospitalization, functional and work status at I year, immunosuppressive therapy, and the development of complications such as hypertension, hyperlipidemia, renal insufficiency, diabetes, and malignancy.
This study is an analysis of this database for the period of April 1,1994, through March 31,1995, examining specifically morbidity, functional status, and other clinical events occurring during the period after the initial hospitalization and up to the first-year follow-up. (...)
