  • The thoracotomy approach showed significant improvements in patients` quality of life and functional capacity, supported by strong safety and effectiveness data from the study," said David Steinhaus, M.D., vice president and general manager of the Heart Failure business, which is part of the Cardiac and Vascular Group at Medtronic. (
  • As a consequence of improved management in acute coronary syndromes and improved longevity of the population, the number of patients with heart failure is growing. (
  • w1 Up to 10% of people with heart failure are at an advanced stage, amounting to 300 000 patients in the USA and 60 000 in the UK. (
  • The combination of good surgical success rates and the presence of a growing number of well equipped cardiac transplant programmes has created an enormous flux of heart failure patients towards these centres. (

  • The death rates of advanced heart failure patients on the waiting list of the United Network for Organ Sharing (UNOS), the US organisation in charge of organ transplantation ( ), have decreased dramatically over time, from 432.2 per 1000 patient years in 1990 to 172.4 per 1000 patient years in 1999. (

  • Studies conducted at the Center for Advanced Lung Disease and Lung Transplantation continue to improve treatment options, prevent or delay the progression of serious lung diseases, and improve the quality of life and survival for our patients. (
  • Expertise in our preoperative management and life support has allowed our Program to transplant much sicker patients with significantly higher lung allocation scores compared to the rest of the country. (
  • Most transplant surgeries are now performed without using the heart-lung bypass machine, sparing patients from associated postoperative complications. (
  • The average waiting time for a lung transplant was seven months, with one in four patients receiving a transplant within ten weeks of being placed on the organ donation wait list. (
  • For patients with end-stage lung disease, lung transplantation offers hope for a second chance at life. (
  • Patients referred for lung transplantation are typically out of options and looking for a way to continue living and breathing. (
  • Once patients are put on the waitlist for a donor lung, the average amount of time before they receive a transplant is 3-5 months. (
  • The team calculates patients' Lung Allocation Score (LAS), which prioritizes them on the waitlist depending on the severity of their illness. (
  • After receiving a lung transplant, patients must be on lifelong immunosuppression to prevent rejection of the transplanted lung. (
  • Subject to certain exclusions, this study is only open to prospective pediatric heart transplant patients. (

  • Effective treatment for heart failure with preserved ejection fraction (HFPEF) remains elusive, but use of dopamine in decompensated patients with right ventricle dysfunction (RVD) may at least reduce hospital length of stay. (
  • Neither the initial study nor the post-hoc analysis presented this year found any statistically significant benefit from dopamine, in patients with or without RVD, but this year's poster suggested that its use did result in shorter hospitalization for those with RVD ( P = 0.01). (

  • AbstractPrimary graft dysfunction (PGD) remains the leading cause of early mortality post-heart transplantation. (
  • Backgroud : In lung transplantation using Non-Heart-Beating donors(NHBD), the postmortem period of warm ischemia exacerbates lung ischemia-reperfusion injury, We hypothesized that intrabronchial administ rat ion of Prostaglandin E1 (PGE1) would reduce ischemia-reperfusion injury, and ameliorate the viability of the lung graft. (
  • Conclusion : These data suggested that intrabronchial administration of PGE1 during warm ischemia is advantageous for preservation of graft function in lungs harvested from NHBD. (

  • A process that prevents antibody-mediated rejection in lung transplantation has been identified in mice by the researchers at the Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis. (
  • Antibody-mediated rejection has become a leading cause of lung failure after transplantation, which is difficult to diagnose and does not respond to many medications. (
  • Often, the culprit is lung rejection, which occurs when cells in the patient's immune system perceive the donor lung as a foreign threat. (
  • However, one particularly deadly form of rejection called antibody-mediated rejection remains difficult to diagnose after a lung transplant and is mostly impervious to available treatments. (
  • Antibody-mediated rejection is a vexing problem that is increasingly being acknowledged as an important cause of lung failure after transplantation," said the study's senior author, Daniel Kreisel, MD, PhD, the surgical director of lung transplantation at the School of Medicine and Barnes-Jewish Hospital. (
  • The researchers noted that antibody-mediated rejection after lung transplantation occurs when B cells mingle with T cells in the donor lung. (
  • We thought these Foxp3 T-cells would inhibit activation of T cells after lung transplantation and prevent cellular rejection," said Kreisel, who is also the G. Alexander Patterson, MD/Mid-America Transplant Endowed Distinguished Chair in Lung Transplantation. (
  • Instead, we were surprised to find that it was the antibody-producing B cells that sparked lung rejection when Foxp3 T cells were absent. (
