CI = confidence interval; HR = hazard ratio; PGF = primary graft failure; other abbreviations as in Table 1.

  • Adjusted for propensity score.

  • Adjusted for recipient age, sex mismatch, donor recipient height ratio, ischemic etiology, total waitlist time, UNOS status 1a or old 1 at transplant, LVAD at transplant, graft ischemic time, and donor cause of death.
