Endomyocardial Biopsy in Heart Transplantation: Schedule or Event
Transplantation Proceedings, 05/10/2012Chi NH et al.
The rejection rate was low after 3 years; episodes occurred within 2 years. Although the long–term survival in the event group was better, they had a younger man age. The rejection and freedom from rejection rates were similar. As the rejection rate was low at 3 years after transplantation, the authors suggest that the event principle could be applied for biopsy at 3 years after heart transplantation.
