Primary graft failure (PGF) is a common and devastating complication, despite the advances in perioperative treatment. We aim to evaluate the prevalence of PGF and its impact on survival and to explore associated risk factors.

Despite advances in HLA matching, graft failure remains a serious complication after allogeneic hematopoietic cell transplantation (HCT). Pre-formed anti-HLA donor-specific antibodies (DSAs) have been...
Graft failure affects approximately 5% of allogeneic stem cell transplants, with a poor prognosis. Salvage second allogeneic stem cell transplantation (alloSCT2) is limited by high rates of transplant...
PGD is a complication after heart transplantation (OHT) and a significant cause of mortality, particularly in infant recipients. Lack of standardized definition of PGD in the pediatric population make...
The OPTN Pancreas Transplantation Committee performed a multicenter retrospective study to determine if undetectable serum C-peptide levels correspond to center-reported pancreas graft failures. C-pep...
We aimed to evaluate the association between intraoperative pulmonary vascular resistance (PVR) and clinical outcome of liver transplantation (LT). Cardiovascular involvement of end-stage liver diseas...
Graft failure is a lethal complication after allogeneic stem cell transplantation, which often need a salvage transplantation. However, the current outcome of second transplantation for gr...
This study will investigate the prevalence of allograft vasculopathy and unexplained graft dysfunction during long-term follow-up after heart transplantation. Risk factors as well diagnost...
The cardiac allograft rejection (CAR) and cardiac allograft vasculopathy (CAV) significantly affect the prognosis of patients after heart transplantation. The aim of the present study is t...
Carperitide (alpha-human atrial natriuretic peptide) improves systemic hemodynamics in patients with heart failure through a vasodilatory action, a natriuretic action, and inhibition of th...
An unmet medical need exists for therapeutic regimens in transplantation that allow immediate postoperative graft function, thereby improving graft survival. Delayed graft function (DGF) a...
A form of ischemia-reperfusion injury occurring in the early period following transplantation. Significant pathophysiological changes in MITOCHONDRIA are the main cause of the dysfunction. It is most often seen in the transplanted lung, liver, or kidney and can lead to GRAFT REJECTION.
Tumors in any part of the heart. They include primary cardiac tumors and metastatic tumors to the heart. Their interference with normal cardiac functions can cause a wide variety of symptoms including HEART FAILURE; CARDIAC ARRHYTHMIAS; or EMBOLISM.
Agents that have a strengthening effect on the heart or that can increase cardiac output. They may be CARDIAC GLYCOSIDES; SYMPATHOMIMETICS; or other drugs. They are used after MYOCARDIAL INFARCT; CARDIAC SURGICAL PROCEDURES; in SHOCK; or in congestive heart failure (HEART FAILURE).
General dysfunction of an organ occurring immediately following its transplantation. The term most frequently refers to renal dysfunction following KIDNEY TRANSPLANTATION.
A heterogeneous condition in which the heart is unable to pump out sufficient blood to meet the metabolic need of the body. Heart failure can be caused by structural defects, functional abnormalities (VENTRICULAR DYSFUNCTION), or a sudden overload beyond its capacity. Chronic heart failure is more common than acute heart failure which results from sudden insult to cardiac function, such as MYOCARDIAL INFARCTION.
Organ transplantation is the moving of an organ from one body to another or from a donor site to another location on the patient's own body, for the purpose of replacing the recipient's damaged or absent organ. The emerging field of regenerative ...
An anesthesiologist (US English) or anaesthetist (British English) is a physician trained in anesthesia and perioperative medicine. Anesthesiologists are physicians who provide medical care to patients in a wide variety of (usually acute) situations. ...
