Because studies about insomnia among organ recipients were scarce, we used National Health Insurance Research Database (NHIRD) between 2001 and 2012 to understand how pre-transplant and post-transplant insomnia effect on the survival among solid organ recipients.
National Health Insurance program is compulsory for all citizens in Taiwan. Insomnia was defined by International Classification of Diseases, Ninth Revision, Clinical Modification (ICD-9-CM) 307.41, 307.42 or 780.52 with great than or equal to 3 times on records of outpatient visits or hospitalizations. In this study, 5853 patients received heart, kidney or liver transplantation from 2001 to 2011 with a follow-up ≥ 1 month. Kaplan-Meier analysis was used for survival and log-rank test were calculated for comparisons.
5853 recipients were analyzed and 297 patients (5.1%) were pre-transplant insomnia, 260 recipients (4.4%) were post-transplant insomnia and the rest (90.5%) was insomnia free. Among solid organ recipients, those with post-transplant insomnia had better survival than pre-transplant insomnia and insomnia free (p<0.001). Both pre-transplant insomnia and insomnia free group had similar outcome (p=0.65). We also found same results among kidney (p<0.001) and liver (p=0.01) recipients but no significant difference on heart patients (p=0.17).
Recipients with post-transplant insomnia had better survival than pre-transplant insomnia and insomnia free. Patients with pre-transplant insomnia and insomnia free group had similar survival. These phenomenon also could be found in kidney and liver transplantations.
