Mauna Kea touts data from Cellvizio lung transplant study
This study provides further evidence of the broad potential of the Cellvizio platform to improve diagnostic and treatment outcomes. We thank Dr. Keller and his colleagues for conducting this unique study sponsored by Mauna Kea Technologies and demonstrating that with proper training, the procedure is effective and reproducible. We are optimistic that Cellvizio will increasingly be used in a variety of applications that can benefit from its unique ability to provide real-time diagnostic information at the cellular level. Moreover, image interpretation automation with artificial intelligence will contribute to the performance and adoption of Cellvizio in this and other applications,” CEO &founder Sacha Loiseau said in a press release. Earlier this month, Mauna Kea said it won 510(k) clearance from the FDA for its Confocal miniprobes designed for use with the company’s Cellvizio platform. The Confocal miniprobes are indicated for use in urological and minimally invasive surgical applications along with the near-infared Cellvizio platform.

ConclusionsBTT ECMO can be performed as a bridge to LTx without significantly increasing patient mortality in high-volume centers. Patients undergoing BTT ECMO at LTx centers that perform more than 35 LTx annually have equivalent mortality to those who do not require ECMO prior to transplantation.Graphical abstract

Because each sport has its own set of characteristics and physiological complications that tend to appear during exercise training, the effects and underlying mechanisms of exercise remain unclear. Thus, the first step in probing exercise effects on different diseases is the s...
The new heart allocation system in the United States prioritizes patients supported by temporary mechanical circulatory support devices (TMCS) over those with uncomplicated durable continuous-flow left ventricular assist devices (CF-LVAD), which may increase the number of patients bridged to transplant with TMCS. Limited data are available in guiding post-transplant outcomes with various TMCS devices. We sought to describe post-transplant outcome and identify clinical variables associated with post-transplant outcome in patients bridged to transplant with TMCS.
We describe a novel approach for bilateral lung transplantation as off-pump technique via median sternotomy which has the potential to combine the advantages of median sternotomy with less postoperative pain and better chest wall function and off-pump technique with reduced risk of primary graft dysfunction and bleeding complications.

Conclusions Impairments in sensory and anticipatory postural control were insufficiently restored after subacute lung transplantation rehabilitation. The little sensitivity of the sensory organization test-composite score or limits of stability test scores to detect a minimal change in performance due to rehabilitation limits the clinical applicability of these tests as objective outcome measures in lung transplantation rehabilitation.
