|Abstract:||In a 38-year-old man combined heart and kidney transplantation was performed successfully in one operation. Both organs have functioned well post-operatively: the patient was discharged from hospital on the 19th postoperative day and has remained in functional class I (New York Heart Association) eight months later. Only two episodes of cardiac rejection have been observed during this period, responding to treatment, and there was no evidence of rejection of the kidney. Such combined heart-kidney transplantation from one donor seems to be a promising form of treatment for patients in end-stage myocardial and renal failure. The frequency of cardiac rejections may be lower after combined heart-kidney transplantation than after cardiac transplantation alone.|
