Outcomes in recipients of combined heart-kidney transplantation: multiorgan, same-donor transplant study of the International Society of Heart and Lung Transplantation/United Network for Organ Sharing Scientific Registry.

Transplantation 1997 March 28
In patients awaiting heart transplantation, end-stage disease of a second organ may occasionally require consideration of simultaneous multiorgan transplantation. Outcome statistics in multiorgan transplant recipients are needed to define optimal utilization of scarce donor resources. Incidence of cardiac allograft rejection, actuarial recipient survival, and cardiac allograft rejection-free survival were evaluated in 82 recipients of 84 simultaneous heart and kidney transplants. Twenty-three of the 82 dual-organ recipients have died with 1, 6, 12, and 24-month actuarial survival rates of 92%, 79%, 76%, and 67%, respectively. The actuarial survival rates in the heart-kidney recipients were similar to those observed in 14,340 isolated heart recipients (United Network for Organ Sharing Scientific Registry) during the same period (92%, 86%, 83%, and 79%, respectively; P=0.20). Clinical data on all episodes of treated rejection in either organ and on immunosuppressive regimens were available on 56 patients; 48% of these patients have had no rejection in either organ, 27% experienced heart rejection alone, 14% experienced kidney rejection alone, and 11% had both heart and kidney allograft rejection. Heart allograft rejection was less common in heart-kidney recipients, as compared with isolated heart transplant recipients; 0, 1, and > or = 2 treated cardiac allograft rejection episodes occurred in 63%, 20%, and 18% of heart-kidney recipients compared with 46%, 27%, and 28% of 911 isolated heart recipients reported by Transplant Cardiologists' Research Database (P=0.02). The rejection-free survival rates at 1, 3, and 6 months were 88%, 74%, and 71% in the double-organ recipients, as compared with 66%, 44%, and 39%, respectively, in the single-organ recipients. Compared with isolated heart transplantation, combined heart-kidney transplantation does not adversely affect intermediate survival and results in a lower incidence of treated cardiac allograft rejection. The findings suggest that combined heart-kidney transplantation may be an acceptable option in a small subset of potential heart transplant recipients with severe renal dysfunction.
