Mortality Prediction for Heart TransplantJohns Hopkins researchers say they have a formula to predict which heart transplant are developed most at risk of death in the surgeries operations, information to find the help medical teams on who benefit most from the could release small number of organs available. – ‘A limited resource donor hearts,’said John V. Professor of surgery at the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine and the lead author of the study. ‘Now we have an easy to use tool with highly predictive of survival heart transplant heart transplant, and can help guide organ allocation decisions. ‘.
Conte and his colleagues, writing in the September issue of of the Annals of Thoracic Surgery a number of risk a number of risk factors already drew with poor results, such as age, gender, the cause of a patient’s heart failure and whether he or she was on dialysis, and then assigned to a number of points to each factor.
