  1. M: male; F: female. (*) patient with cardiac pacemaker. BMI: body mass index in kg/m2. Calcium mass in mg CaHa. NL: no lesion. Biopsy: classification of rejection (ISHLT). Grade 0 R: no rejection; Grade 1 R: mild rejection; Grade 2 R: moderate rejection and Grade 3 R: severe rejection. Magnetic resonance imaging: NF: no fibrosis; SF: slight fibrosis; DF: diffuse fibrosis. NP: not performed. Coronary angiography/multi-slice computed tomography: CAD: Coronary artery disease; CS: Coronary sclerosis. Ejection fraction EF > 55% was defined as normal.
