Acute cellular rejection(ACR) is a common complication in the first year after heart transplantation(HT). Routine surveillance for ACR is undertaken by endomyocardial biopsy(EMB). Measurement of Cardiac troponins(cTn) in serum is an established diagnostic test of cardiac myocyte injury. This systematic review aimed to determine if cTn measurement could be used to diagnose or exclude ACR.

Conclusions Lung retransplantation is a viable treatment option for CLAD after LTx. In this study, retransplantation patients were younger, had higher lung allocation scores, and were more likely to require cardiopulmonary bypass and postoperative extracorporeal membrane oxygenation support than primary LTx patients. Postoperative length of stay and short- and mid-term survival were comparable with those of primary LTx patients.

Conclusions Transplant-free survival after TAPVC repair is excellent, with most deaths or transplant events occurring early. Factors associated with the worst long-term outcomes included complex TAPVC, mixed TAPVC, and prolonged postoperative length of stay.
