This study reviewed single institutional data to develop a composite risk index for mortality after heart transplantation in patients with congenital heart disease.  Results in 46 pts operated 1996-2011 were studied with the primary differentiation being single vs double ventricle morphology.  Predictors of mortality were preoperative renal insufficiency and the combination of single ventricle morphology and dialysis.
