On behalf of the Registry Executive Committee, I am pleased to present the 2012 Annual Reports of the Scientific Registry (the Registry) of the International Society for Heart and Lung Transplantation (ISHLT). The Registry has now collected, analyzed, and reported data regarding more than 150,000 heart, heart-lung, and lung transplants. We are delighted to report a new relationship with the Registro Español de Trasplante Cardíaco, which will allow us, for the first time, to add data to the Registry regarding more than 4,000 heart transplants performed in Spain between May 1984 and March 2012. The addition of the Spanish data, in combination with continued participation of more than 200 other centers worldwide (Appendix), has resulted in the past year being our most active to date, with 6,915 reported transplants (Table 1).
