Renal function has been shown to be a risk factor for death while waiting for heart transplant and following transplantation in the pediatric population. Little is known about the effects of a deterioration of function from the time of listing to transplantation. This study was designed to determine the effects of worsening renal function during […]

Little information has been published on quality of life of children supported with mechanical circulatory support (MCS) (ECMO or VAD) with end stage heart failure. This paper examined the quality of life (QoL) scores, 3 years post transplant, in 84 children with cardiomyopathy. Of these children, 26 were bridged to transplant with mechanical circulatory support. […]

Early in-hospital deaths following pediatric heart continue to be a significant problem. Multiple studies have defined potential risk factors for early death but a validated risk predication model for in-hospital mortality does not exist. This study aimed to develop and validate such a model to assist in predicting in-hospital mortality following pediatric heart transplantation. This […]
