The first heart transplantation in Spain was performed in 1984.
Since then, 950 patients had undergone heart transplantation in our country as of December 1992.
Data from all these 950 patients have been reported to the Spanish National Registry of Heart Transplantation since its inception in 1989.
Follow-up is complete for all patients.
Mean age of recipients was 46 ± 14 years ; 86% were male patients.
Almost 50% of all heart transplant procedures were performed in 1991 (232 patients, 6 per million persons) and 1992 (254 patients, 6.6 per million).
Twelve centers have performed heart transplantations in Spain.
Of the 950 procedures, 907 (95%) have been orthotopic, 6 (0.6%) heterotopic, 16 (1.7%) heart-lung transplantations, and 21 (2.7%) retransplantations.
