Many centers have now adopted hsTnT as a serum biomarker. This study found a serum hsTNT concentration of 33.55 ng/l 6 weeks after transplantation was found to be the best cutoff to predict death at 1 year (HR 0.16, 95%CI:0.05–0.46, P = 0.001) with a sensitivity of 90.91% and a specificity of 70.97%. In addition, […]

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 […]

This retrospective analysis of 554 lung transplant recipients compared the outcomes of patients with previous cardiothoracic surgical procedures (prior to lung transplant) to outcomes of patients without prior procedures. There was no difference in survival between the two groups, but allograft dysfunction and the incidence of major complications was higher in the patients with previous […]

Hypoalbuminemia is frequently associated with morbidity and mortality in illness and aging patients. This study used Cox proportional hazard models to examine associations between serum albumin and rate of death after lung transplantation in 6808 adult patients with interstitial lung disease, COPD, or cystic fibrosis. Hypoalbuminemia was independently associated with increased risk of death in […]

In 2007, France implemented a high emergency lung allocation system to prioritize candidates with immediately life-threatening conditions, such as mechanical ventilation and ECMO. This survival analysis assessed survival outcomes in patients undergoing transplant via the high emergency lung allocation system during the first two years. The study is limited by small patient numbers, but indicates […]

The purpose of this study was to attempt to settle the controversies regarding outcomes in peripartum cardiomyopathy cardiac transplant recipients through an analysis of the United Network for Organ Sharing (UNOS) database.  This group of peripartum cardiomyopathy patients in the UNOS database have baseline characteristics suggesting higher acuity: more were hospitalized at the time of […]

Several studies have shown significant rates of ventricular tachyarrhythmia events while on VAD support, ranging from 22% -52%.  This single center study noted the mean time to first shock after LVAD implant was 129 ± 109 days, the LVAD cohort was more likely to have an appropriate ICD before LVAD implant than after and a survival […]
