We examined the effect of cold ischemic interval (CII) on modern outcomes to determine whether advances in patient management have made an impact.

Rescuing heterotopic heart transplantation (HHT) patients remains a challenge in the field. When a 41 year old patient was transferred to our service, we chose a novel approach that is reported herein...
Gene expression profiling (GEP) measures a 20 gene expression profile of RNA isolated from mononuclear cells and offers a non-invasive acute cellular rejection surveillance method that is non-inferior...
Every year the number of patients waiting for a heart transplant increases faster than the number of available donor organs. Some potential donor organs are from donors with active communicable diseas...
Many heart transplant recipients experience declining kidney function following transplantation. We aimed to quantify change in kidney function in heart transplant recipients stratified by pre-transp...
There are two principal purposes of this study: 1) to determine whether it is more beneficial for a liver transplant recipient candidate to pursue a living donor liver transplant (LDLT) o...
Study subjects active on the waiting list for a heart transplant at the NYU Langone Transplant Institute who are hepatitis C (HCV) negative will receive a heart transplant from a donor who...
Activity of genes in donor tissues that are involved in inflammation are thought to be involved with early organ dysfunction, increased immune responses in transplant recipients, and organ...
The long-term goals of this proposal are to develop clinical protocols of donor preconditioning to improve liver graft function and ameliorate complications of poor graft function after li...
In recent years, a large number of studies confirmed the protective effect of ischemic preconditioning on myocardium against ischemia/reperfusion injury, but the clinical data of the effec...
The application of repeated, brief periods of vascular occlusion at the onset of REPERFUSION to reduce REPERFUSION INJURY that follows a prolonged ischemic event. The techniques are similar to ISCHEMIC PRECONDITIONING but the time of application is after the ischemic event instead of before.
The body location or part from which tissue is taken for TRANSPLANTATION.
The heart of the fetus of any viviparous animal. It refers to the heart in the postembryonic period and is differentiated from the embryonic heart (HEART/embryology) only on the basis of time.
Ischemic injury to the OPTIC NERVE which usually affects the OPTIC DISK (optic neuropathy, anterior ischemic) and less frequently the retrobulbar portion of the nerve (optic neuropathy, posterior ischemic). The injury results from occlusion of arterial blood supply which may result from TEMPORAL ARTERITIS; ATHEROSCLEROSIS; COLLAGEN DISEASES; EMBOLISM; DIABETES MELLITUS; and other conditions. The disease primarily occurs in the sixth decade or later and presents with the sudden onset of painless and usually severe monocular visual loss. Anterior ischemic optic neuropathy also features optic disk edema with microhemorrhages. The optic disk appears normal in posterior ischemic optic neuropathy.
