Researchers shed new light on double-lung transplants

In the largest retrospective study to date using data from the United Network for Organ Sharing database for adult double-lung transplants, researchers have shown that there is no statistically significant difference between rejection and mortality rates among double-lung transplant recipients when their transplanted organs came from donors whose blood type was identical or compatible to their own.

AbstractPurpose of the ReviewAlthough still a relatively new technology, long-term left ventricular assist devices (LVADs) for management of advanced heart failure is rapidly increasing. Initially designed as a bridge to transplant, these invasive devices are increasingly used as a destination therapy, creating unique and long-term infection risks. The aim of this comprehensive review is to highlight current evidence about the prevention, diagnosis, and management of LVAD-specific infections.Recent FindingsThere are two recent, major societal guidelines (The International Society for Heart and Lung Transplantation, 2017, a...
