The sample median (range) is given for continuous variables and number (percent) is given for categorical variables. Information was not available for the following variables:  initial BMI (n=28), ischemic time (n=66), left ventricular ejection fraction of donor heart(n=186), serum total albumin (n=290), diabetes (n=9), dialysis at listing (n=9). BMI= body-mass index. VAD=ventricular assist device. IABP=intraaortic balloon pump.
