Restrictive allograft syndrome (RAS) after lung transplantation (LTx) is associated with the poorer graft survival in patients with chronic lung allograft dysfunction (CLAD). Nevertheless, its diagnostic criteria remain not well defined after single-LTx (SLTx). Hence, we studied an SLTx cohort with CLAD to investigate the utility of both CT-score/volume measures and functional spirometric criteria for early identifying RAS in this population.

Conclusion: There is an identified gap of approximately 20% between the total number of transplants in the European data submitted to the ISHLT registry and the country specific reported data for 2016. This number underestimates the total number of lung transplant procedures, as there are some European countries where 2016 data was not available for review.

We report here a series of children who developed pulmonary hypertension after HSCT. Methods Between January 2008 and December 2015, we retrospectively analysed 366 children who underwent HSCT (age range 0.5–252 months; median 20.3 months). During the post-HSCT course, echocardiography scans motivated by respiratory symptoms identified 31 patients with elevated tricuspid regurgitation velocity (>2.8 m·s–1), confirmed when possible by right heart catheterisation (RHC). Results 22 patients had confirmed pulmonary hypertension with mean±sd pulmonary arterial pressure 40.1±1...

Conclusions: The present study seeks to provide new insight in the pathophysiological mechanisms linking reduced kidney function to cardiovascular disease. In addition, we aim to enlighten predictors of adverse cardiovascular outcome in living kidney donors. The study is registered at Clinical-Trials.gov (identifier: NCT03729557).

Conclusion: Considering the poor oral hygiene and high clinical periodontal parameters of heart transplant recipients, periodontal evaluation should be done regularly before and after transplantation. The patient's daily oral hygiene regimens should be evaluated carefully in this evaluation session and modified based on their gingival health, manual skill and motivational levels. The importance of oral health and its effects on systemic health should also be explained to the transplant recipients in detail. PMID: 31661343 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

AbstractA 45 ‐year‐old male presented in decompensated heart failure from nonischemic cardiomyopathy and was implanted with a right transaxillary intra‐aortic balloon pump. He was listed for heart transplantation but after 9 days, he developed abdominal pain with evidence of embolization on computed tomogr aphy scan despite a well‐positioned balloon pump. He underwent concomitant abdominal exploration with small bowel resection and durable left ventricular assist device implantation. He recovered well and was discharged home. This case highlights the challenges of decision‐making in the current er a where intra...

In this study, researchers studied 438,952 participants in the UK Biobank, who had a total of 24,980 major coronary events - defined as the first occurrence of non-fatal heart attack, ischaemic stroke, or death due to coronary heart disease. They used an approach called Mendelian randomisation, which uses naturally occurring genetic differences to randomly divide the participants into groups, mimicking the effects of running a clinical trial. People with genes associated with lower blood pressure, lower LDL cholesterol, and a combination of both were put into different groups, and compared against those without thes...

We examined human lung tissue from COPD patients and normal control subjects, and found a substantial increase in p16-expressing alveolar cells in COPD patients. Using a transgenic mouse deficient for p16, we demonstrated that lungs of mice lacking p16 were structurally and functionally resistant to CS-induced emphysema due to activation of IGF1/Akt regenerative and protective signaling.
