Systematic Evaluation of Predictors of Quality of Life in the Long-term After Solid Organ Transplantation
A systematic evaluation of predictors of health related quality of life (HRQoL) leads to multiple level of data analysis. The aim of the herein described observational project is to create a transplant patients registry on psychosocial outcomes and to evaluate longitudinally predictors of HRQoL after different types of solid organ transplantation in the long-term. A sample size of 700 participants consisting of all solid organ types is envisioned. Data will be compared with published healthy normative data. Data Evaluation of predictors of HRQoL may guide development of tailored interventions to reduce complications and to further improve outcomes.

Tissue And Organ Procurement
The administrative procedures involved with acquiring TISSUES or organs for TRANSPLANTATION through various programs, systems, or organizations. These procedures include obtaining consent from TISSUE DONORS and arranging for transportation of donated tissues and organs, after TISSUE HARVESTING, to HOSPITALS for processing and transplantation.
Tissue And Organ Harvesting
The procedure of removing TISSUES, organs, or specimens from DONORS for reuse, such as TRANSPLANTATION.
The chilling of a tissue or organ during decreased BLOOD perfusion or in the absence of blood supply. Cold ischemia time during ORGAN TRANSPLANTATION begins when the organ is cooled with a cold perfusion solution after ORGAN PROCUREMENT surgery, and ends after the tissue reaches physiological temperature during implantation procedures. WARM ISCHEMIA TIME starts then and ends with completion of SURGICAL ANASTOMOSIS.
Preparative treatment of transplant recipient with various conditioning regimens including radiation, immune sera, chemotherapy, and/or immunosuppressive agents, prior to transplantation. Transplantation conditioning is very common before bone marrow transplantation.
Transference of an organ between individuals of the same species or between individuals of different species.
In patients who receive an organ transplant, their body considers this organ as foreign and attempts to destroy it. This is called rejection. All patients who receive an organ transplant...
The objective of this study is to determine whether protocol guided resuscitation of brain dead organ donors using Pulse Pressure Variation (PPV) will increase the number of organs transpl...
Immunosuppressive therapy protocols in solid organ transplantation are rudimentary, differ by transplant center and no practical strategies are available to guide an individuals' response...
This study will investigate the clinical variables that may be used to predict who among the solid organ transplant recipients will develop cytomegalovirus (CMV) disease after completing a...
Does remote ischemic preconditioning (RIPC) induced by a brief period of occlusion of blood flow to the lower extremity prior to organ recovery in deceased donors, improve short and long t...
