Bretschneider HTK-solution is frequently used for myocardial preservation. In order to evaluate its protective effect in heart transplantation we initiated a retrospective study in co-operation with Eurotransplant. Sixty-four female and 95 male patients, who were transplanted between 1985 and 1991 at our institution, were included in this study. We collected important data on donors and recipients, such as labaratory data, and data on immunosuppressive therapy and pre-, intra- and postoperative organ function.
