Discussion The results of this study indicated that the patients experienced several emotional and psychological changes after heart transplantation. It was also shown that the participants experienced a change in the emotions and feelings over time. On the basis of the findings of this study, it can be suggested that health care providers need to improve their knowledge about posttransplant changes, recipients' feelings, and adaptation strategies.

Conclusions Implantation of an LVAD is associated with significant, nonlinear improvement in short-term memory and global cognitive function, with the most significant improvements occurring in the first 3 months after implantation. Clinicians should anticipate improvements in cognitive function after LVAD implantation and modify postimplantation education to maximize effectiveness of LVAD self-care.

Primary immunodeficiency (PID) is a rare indication for hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (HSCT) and no standard approaches to transplant are utilized in these patients. For many decades, alongside serotherapy in conditioning regimens, post-transplant immunosuppression has been routinely used for graft versus host disease (GVHD) prophylaxis in HSCT recipients.1 However, growing implementation of both in vivo and ex vivo T-cell depletion methods has been changing this paradigm, which is particularly important in the light of rising numbers of transplants utilizing HLA-mismatched donors.

Pediatric patients with relapsed/refractory B-cell acute lymphoblastic leukemia (B-ALL) historically have poor survival outcomes due to inherent and/or acquired chemotherapy resistance1. With the advent of CD19-specific chimeric antigen receptor (CD19-CAR) T-cell therapies, these patients are now experiencing remission at high rates2-6. For pediatric patients without access to experimental T-cell products, the availability of the FDA-approved product tisagenlecleucel (Kymriah, Novartis) has changed the treatment paradigm7, 8.

Approximately 22,000 individuals receive a hematopoietic stem cell transplant (HSCT) each year in the United States for a variety of underlying conditions, including malignancy, bone marrow failure disorders, primary immunodeficiencies, and metabolic disorders.1,2,3 HSCT requires the administration of high-intensity chemotherapy-based conditioning regimens followed by the infusion of autologous or allogeneic progenitor cells. Despite advances in the field and supportive care, there is still significant treatment-related mortality and morbidity after transplantation, including the risk for opportunistic infections.

Successful allogeneic hematopoietic cell transplant (HCT) treatment for hematological disease requires a complex, multicomponent medical regimen be followed by patients with the help of their caregivers after hospital discharge.1, 2 Patients are most immunocompromised during the first 100 days post-HCT3, thus the initial period at home after discharge is highly important. During this immunocompromised period, patients are at particular risk for graft rejection, opportunistic infections, graft-versus-host disease, and related complications.
