In a national cohort of patients undergoing complex medical procedures, health indicators from patients’ communities are strong independent predictors of all-cause mortality. Findings highlight the importance of community conditions for risk stratification of patients and development of individualized treatment protocols. Findings also demonstrate that standard risk adjustment does not capture important factors that may affect […]

Most registries show worse outcomes with pancreas-after-kidney (PAK) compared to simultaneous pancreas-kidney (SPK) transplants. In this single-centre, retrospective study, living donor renal transplants followed by pancreas transplants showed comparable results to SPK, despite the long time between kidney and pancreas transplants. Greater use of PAK may shorten time of dialysis for patient with a living […]

While acute renal failure or acute kidney injury (AKI) is reversible, it is often seen as a contraindication to transplantation. This retrospective, single-center study compared both standard and expanded criteria donor kidney with and without AKI. Although the rates of delayed graft function were higher in the kidneys with AKI, 1-year results were similar for […]

Restrictive cardiomyopathy is a clinical entity that is often challenging to manage pre-Tx. Restrictive cardiomyopathy has been studied more extensively in the pediatric population with reasonable overall survival after transplantation. Interestingly, the prevalence of heart transplantation in the USA due to restrictive cardiomyopathy is low (1.4%), but is comparable to that for patients transplanted for […]

The development of MCS programs capable of implanting long-term VADs at non-transplant centres may provide more Canadians suffering from end-stage heart failure and critical cardiogenic shock with access to cardiac transplantation as a life-saving therapy. The ongoing debate regarding center volume and outcomes is addressed.

There is a lack of objective diagnostics test to confirm drug-induced liver injury. In this single-center study, the authors applied a specific criteria to identify the prevalence, clinical features and outcomes of drug-induced liver injury in a population of liver transplant recipients. The suspicion of drug-induced liver injury should be considered when unexplained allograft dysfunction […]
