National Heart Transplant Life Expectancy Statistics
National heart transplant survival rate statistics are improving all the time and across all diagnoses. Heart transplant life expectancy also continues to improve. Cardiac allograft vasculopathy, PTLD, and malignancy are major factors in reduced long-term survival rates.
National Heart Transplant Statistics:
- The national 6 month heart transplant survival rate increased from 86.1% in 1999 to 91.6% in 2009
- The national 1 year heart transplant survival rate increased from 81.5% in 1991 to 88.6% in 2008
- The national 5 year heart transplant survival rate increased from 66.2% in 1993 to 73.1% in 2004
- The national 10 year heart transplant survival rate increased from 45.7% in 1991 to 53% in 1999
The number of patients with a functioning heart graft has increased by almost 50% between 1998 and 2009, from 13,715 to 20,369.

Our Heart Transplant Survival Rate Statistics:
We regularly exceed the national average for heart transplant survival rates:
- 88% one year heart transplant survival rate
- 76% three year heart transplant survival rate
- Average length of stay across all transplants of 6 days. 4 days less than the national average
*Transplant survival rates through June 30, 2010
We Have Some of the Best Transplant Survival Rates in the US
An analysis of the 1997 report published by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services shows that among the 32 centers (of 99 total centers) that exceeded 60 transplants in the report's most recent two-year interval, Nazih Zuhdi Transplant Institute in Oklahoma City ranked:
- 4th in the US in actual one-year survival (90 percent)
- 6th in the US in disease-severity-adjusted one-year survival.
Our current one-, two-, three- and five-year transplant survivals are 89 percent, 86 percent, 83 percent and 75 percent.
Heart transplant patients are referred to us from across the US, especially from surrounding states including: Texas, Arkansas, Kansas, Colorado, New Mexico, Missouri, Nebraska and Louisiana.
