Abstract

LTx in children with CF remains controversial. The UNOS database was queried from 1987 to 2013 for CF patients <18 yr of age at time of transplant. PCHR model was used to quantify hazard of mortality. 489 recipients were included in the survival analysis. The hazard function of post-transplant mortality was plotted over attained age to identify age window of highest risk, which was 16-20 yr. Unadjusted PCHR model revealed ages immediately after the high-risk window were characterized by lower hazard of mortality (HR = 0.472; 95% CI = 0.302, 0.738; p = 0.001). After adjusting for potential confounders, the decline in mortality hazard immediately after the high-risk window remained statistically significant (HR = 0.394; 95% CI: 0.211, 0.737; p = 0.004). Hazard of mortality in children with CF after LTx was highest between 16 and 20 yr of attained age and declined thereafter.
