Core Tip We retrospectively analyzed 23736 heart-transplant recipients between 2010 and 2015. Eight risk factors associated with post-transplant cutaneous squamous cell carcinoma were identified, including older age, male sex, lower human leukocyte antigen mismatch level, white race, malignancy at listing, diagnosis with restrictive myopathy or hypertrophic myopathy, heart re-transplant, induction therapy with OKT3 or daclizumab. A multivariate risk prediction model was developed with c-statistics of ≥ 0.77 in both derivation and validation sets. A risk scoring system was designed to stratify patients into 4 risk groups based on their total risk scores. The predicted and observed 5-year probability of developing cutaneous squamous cell carcinoma match well among different risk groups.
