      BACKGROUND: Patients bridged to heart transplantation with left ventricular assist devices (LVADs) have been reported to have higher post-transplant mortality compared with those without LVADs. Our aim was to determine the impact of the type of LVAD and implant era on post-transplant survival.

      METHODS: In this study we included 8,557 patients from the registry of the International Society for Heart and Lung Transplantation. We examined post-transplant outcomes in 1,100 patients bridged ...

      BACKGROUND: The decision to perform single-lung (SLT) or bilateral sequential lung (BSLT) transplantation in patients with pulmonary fibrosis is controversial. Some centers use recipient age (<50 years) as a criterion to select BSLT over SLT, but the rationale for this approach is not well established.

      METHODS: Eight hundred twenty-one patients (636 SLT, 185 BSLT), aged 30 to 69 years, who were recipients of transplants for pulmonary fibrosis in the United States between 1994 and 2000 ...

      BACKGROUND: The objective of this study was to review the international experience in lung transplantation using lung donation after circulatory death (DCD).

      METHODS: In this retrospective study, data from the International Society for Heart and Lung Transplantation (ISHLT) DCD Registry were analyzed. The study cohort included DCD lung transplants performed between January 2003 and June 2013, and reported to the ISHLT DCD Registry as of April 2014. The participating institutions included ...

      BACKGROUND: Retransplantation for graft failure in the pediatric population is rare with reports of decreased survival compared with primary transplantation. Little is known about the risk factors for retransplantation or death after retransplantation; in addition, there is a paucity of data in the literature on transplant-related morbidities in this patient population. The purpose of this analysis of the registry of the International Society of Heart and Lung Transplant (ISHLT) was to ...

      BACKGROUND: The use of induction immunosuppression after lung transplantation remains controversial. In this study, we examined the impact of induction on survival after lung transplantation.

      METHODS: We performed a retrospective cohort study of 3970 adult lung transplant recipients reported to the ISHLT Registry. We divided the cohort into three groups based on the use of induction: none, interleukin-2 receptor antagonists (IL-2 RA), and polyclonal antithymocyte globulins (ATG). We ...

      BACKGROUND: INTERMACS is a registry of FDA-approved durable mechanical circulatory support (MCS) devices used for the strategies of destination therapy (DT) and bridge to transplantation (BTT) or recovery. This study identifies predictors for death and transplantation based on initial results from INTERMACS.

      METHODS: From June 23, 2006 to December 31, 2007, 420 patients from 75 institutions were prospectively entered into the INTERMACS database in which pre-implant data, indication for ...

      OBJECTIVE: We sought to determine the influence of the interval from ventricular assist device implantation to cardiac transplantation on end-organ function and posttransplantation survival.

      METHODS: United Network for Organ Sharing data on 2692 heart transplantations performed in adult patients in the United States between October 1999 and March 2001 were reviewed.

      RESULTS: Seventeen percent (466) of adult heart transplant recipients were bridged to transplantation with a ventricular ...

      BACKGROUND: The use of induction therapy may reduce the risk of acute rejection after heart transplantation. This study assessed the association between basiliximab (BAS) vs anti-thymocyte globulin (ATG) induction and long-term survival after heart transplantation.

      METHODS: We used data from the International Society for Heart and Lung Transplantation Registry to examine outcomes of all adult heart transplant recipients treated with ATG or BAS as induction therapy.

      RESULTS: We identified ...

      BACKGROUND: Malignancy after organ transplantation has been described as the "price of immunotherapy." Evolving strategies aimed at effective immunosuppression could have differing effects on the likelihood of developing malignancy. We analyzed data from the transplant registry of the International Society for Heart and Lung Transplantation (ISHLT) to ascertain which factors are associated with the development of malignancy after orthotopic heart transplantation (OHT).

      BACKGROUND: Improved outcomes with contemporary medical therapy in patients with advanced heart failure brings into question the survival advantage of transplantation for patients in stable United Network for Organ Sharing (UNOS) Status 2.

      METHODS: Between January 1999 and June 2001, a total of 7,539 adult patients were listed for heart transplantation. Of those, 4,255 (56.4%) patients were listed as UNOS Status 2. Using a competing risk method, we computed probabilities of events while ...

      BACKGROUND: Reduced early survival has been reported in adult congenital heart disease (ACHD) heart transplant (HTx) recipients, but little is known about late outcomes after HTx. The aim of this study was to examine survival; causes of death; and predictors of early (<1 year), mid-term (1 to 5 years) and late (>5 years) mortality in ACHD HTx recipients.

      METHODS: ACHD patients undergoing HTx between 1985 and 2010 were identified in the transplant registry of the International Society for ...

      BACKGROUND: Idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF) is the second largest indication for lung transplantation worldwide. Average 90-day mortality rates for this procedure are 22%. It is unclear what factors predispose patients with IPF to this increased early posttransplant mortality. Pulmonary hypertension may increase the risk of development of early posttransplant complications through several mechanisms. We examined the effect of secondary pulmonary hypertension on 90-day mortality after ...

      BACKGROUND: New anti-neoplastic drugs have improved survival of cancer patients but have also been associated with chemotherapy-induced cardiomyopathy (CCMP), ultimately requiring orthotopic heart transplantation (OHT). We conducted this study to describe the clinical characteristics and outcomes of patients with CCMP treated with OHT and compare them with outcomes of patients with other forms of non-ischemic cardiomyopathy (NICMP).

      METHODS: We retrospectively identified 232 CCMP ...

      BACKGROUND: The Etablissement français des Greffes reports regional variability in access to organ transplantation in France. Some variability seems to be inevitable for reasons discussed in the French article. We provide comparative data on a similar phenomenon in the United States, including some historical perspectives and recent attempts to minimize geographic variability especially for patients in urgent need of liver transplants.

      METHODS: To assess regional variability in access to ...

      BACKGROUND: Survival beyond 1 year after heart transplantation has remained without significant improvement for the last 2 decades. A more individualized approach to post-transplant care could result in a reduction of long-term mortality. Although recipient age has been associated with an increased incidence of certain post-transplant morbidities, its effect on cause-specific mortality has not been established.

      METHODS: We analyzed overall and cause-specific mortality of heart transplant ...
