Abstract

As heart transplantation becomes much more common primary care physicians will play a key role in preventing, detecting, and treating the short-term and long-term complications of this procedure. These complications include chiefly graft rejection and accelerated coronary artery disease, but also dyslipidemia, hypertension, diabetes mellitus, kidney failure, gout, osteoporosis, and malignancy.
