In brief: Cardiac transplant
Transplant survival rates have been improving over the past several years as better options exist in preventing rejection (better than 60% live 10 or more years).
Diffuse post-transplant coronary arteriopathy tends to or relate more with late post-transplant events. Coexistant renal failure would also be a negative predictor on survival irrespective of transplant status (mortality 50% at 2 yrs).
