Introduction: Renal transplantation (RTx) is one of the great options for hemodialysis (HD) patients to improve their life expectancy. However, little is known about outcomes of RTx patients undergoing percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI).
Methods: Consecutive 50 RTx patients undergoing PCI from 2002 to 2017 were enrolled. We examined clinical outcomes of RTx patients in comparison with those of 50 HD patients who underwent PCI using propensity score matching. The primary outcome was the incidence of major adverse cardiac event (MACE: a composite of all cause death, non-fatal myocardial infarction and target vessel revascularization [TVR]).
Results: Kaplan-Meier analysis revealed that the incidence of MACE in RTx group was significantly lower than in HD group (p<0.0001). Moreover, RTx group was associated with lower risk for all cause death (odds ratio [OR]: 0.23; 95% confidence interval [CI]: 0.05 to 0.72; p=0.01) and TVR (OR: 0.12; 95% CI: 0.04 to 0.29; p<0.0001) than HD group.Conclusion: Our present results suggest that RTx may improve not only life expectancy but also TVR after PCI.
