Long-term survival for kidney transplant continues to show variability. This study examined whether health-related quality of life (HRQOL) predicts long-term mortality in kidney transplantation after adjustment for known risk factors. A cohort of 347 kidney transplant recipients was followed up for 12 years after enrolment. They completed measures of HRQOL and medical records were reviewed […]

Best practice management of lung transplantation recipients includes both pre- and post-transplantation rehabilitation programs. However, the impact of a specific exercise intervention on recovery and post-transplant outcomes has not been rigorously studied. This randomized controlled trial studied the impact of a 3-month supervised exercise training program in lung transplant recipients with an uncomplicated post-transplant course. […]

Despite a recommended recipient cut off age of 69 years, recipient age remains a controversial topic in heart transplant (HT) candidacy discussions. For the most part, recipient age differences discussions focus primarily on morbidity and mortality outcomes. In this publication the authors shed some light on recipient age differences in quality of life, psychosocial adjustment, […]
