This review article analyzes the currently available data supporting the use of everolimus in de novo heart transplant patients. Rejection, renal function, malignancy, infection and wound complications including pleural and pericardial effusions are examined. The evidence suggests that the most convincing reasons for use of everolimus are to slow the progression of CAV and to […]

Post operative complications and survival after lung transplantation between 1999 and 2009 was reviewed using the UNOS database, to compare outcomes in centres performing a high volume of transplants to centres performing low volumes. The incidence of postoperative complications was similar in both groups, however having a complication in a low volume center was a […]

As the field of lung transplantation advances, the eligibility criteria have evolved and patients with more risk factors for impaired renal function are now receiving lung transplants.  This cohort study examined baseline characteristics of lung transplant recipients and the incidence of renal function impairment in consecutive series of transplants.   Although there was a higher prevalence […]

Hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) has been estimated to be the third most common cause of cancer-related death. The best potential curative therapies available are liver resection or transplantation. Determination of which curative intent therapy to offer to which patient remains poorly defined. In this analysis the authors define the relative outcomes for patients who theoretically might […]

There is variability in how bacterial, viral, and fungal infections are defined after cardiothoracic transplantation, leading to variation in reported incidences of disease and epidemiology of infections.  This consensus report attempts to standardize definitions of common and uncommon infections by combining clinical features, radiology, and microbiology.  These definitions can be used for future descriptive or […]
