Abstract

Advances in heart transplantation and post-operative rejection therapy have given new hope to patients with end-stage congestive heart failure and cardiomyopathies. The growing numbers of pre- and post-transplant patients and the complexity of their care underscore the need for a multispecialty approach to patient management. This study examines the success of a multi- service program at Brooke Army Medical Center which offers pre- and post- transplant care to active duty, dependent, and retired military personnel.
