ABO-Identical Blood Group Matching Has No Survival Benefit for AB Heart Transplant Recipients.

Forskningsoutput: TidskriftsbidragArtikel i vetenskaplig tidskrift

Abstract

Although identical blood group matching is preferred, it is uncertain if this results in improved survival and, if so, how large the survival benefits are. Earlier studies have yielded conflicting results and are mostly based on single-center cohorts with few long-term results. Recipients with blood group AB are of particular interest regarding nonidentical blood group matching because they may receive organs from all blood groups. We wanted to test the hypothesis that ABO-identical matching results in superior survival in recipients with blood group AB.
