Recent studies directly linked asymptomatic AMR with a higher risk of cardiac allograft vasculopathy and mortality.  The study provides insight on the incidence of asymptomatic AMR early and late after transplantation. The course of untreated asymptomatic AMR appears to be influenced by the severity of its initial presentation and, to a lesser extent, the time from transplant.  The discussion explores the complexities of AMR incorporating the variation of patient profiles.
