The Registry of the International Society for Heart and Lung Transplantation: Thirty-third Adult Heart Transplantation Report—2016; Focus Theme: Primary Diagnostic Indications for Transplant

      Since the first heart transplant was performed in 1967, heart transplantation has grown worldwide. This 33rd adult heart transplant report is based on data submitted to the International Society for Heart and Lung Transplantation (ISHLT) Registry on 118,788 heart transplants in recipients of all ages (including 113,472 adult heart transplants) through June 30, 2015. This year’s report focuses on primary diagnostic indications for transplant. We present data on the distribution of diagnostic categories, demographics of patients with the different heart disorders leading to the need for transplant (Figure 1), associations of the diagnoses with outcomes, and other data of interest related to this topic.
