Up to one-third of transplant recipients can develop hypogammaglobulinemia. However, it is controversial whether the presence of hypogammaglobulinemia leads to an increased risk of infections. Further, many transplant centers do not do routine monitoring for this. The authors of this paper prospectively monitored 226 kidney transplant patients at 0, 1, 6 months post-transplant. At one […]

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 […]

Toxoplasmosis is a relatively uncommon infectious complication after transplant.  Seropositive heart transplant recipients or heart transplant recipients who receive toxoplasmosis seropositive hearts generally receive lifelong prophylaxis.  A review of SOTs done in Spain identified 22 cases of toxoplasmosis.  Although the majority of these were heart transplant recipients, kidney and liver transplant patients also developed the […]

This article defines risk factors for patient mortality and graft loss in living-donor liver transplantation (LDLT) in North American centers. It analyzes the association between the center’s experience and the outcomes. It provide guidance for selection of donors and recipients in adult living-donor liver transplantation.
