  • Descrição: To determine the effect of heart donors with echocardiographic abnormalities on short and long-term outcomes on heart transplant recipients. Retrospective chart review of heart donors used over 6 y. Donor charts provided demographic information, cause of death, and echo results. Recipient charts were queried for predischarge echo and survival results. From January 1999 to December 2005, 485 heart transplants were performed. Of these, 50 donors had 70 echo abnormalities. Mean donor age was 32 y (range 4–51 y). Echo abnormalities included wall motion abnormality in 30 (60%), left ventricular hypertrophy in 20 (40%), mitral regurgitation in 16 (32%), aortic regurgitation in 2 (4%), and left ventricle dilation in 2 (4%). Mean ejection fraction was 54.0% (range 40%–70%). Echo abnormalities post-transplant decreased significantly to 18 (64% decrease) patients with 21 (70% decrease) echo abnormalities. Wall motion abnormalities resolved in 27 (90%...
