Summary of "Effects of donor cause of death, ischemia time, inotrope exposure, troponin values, cardiopulmonary resuscitation, electrocardiographic and echocardiographic data on recipient outcomes: A review of the literature."

Heart transplantation has become standard of care for pediatric patients with either end-stage heart failure or inoperable congenital heart defects. Despite increasing surgical complexity and overall volume, however, annual transplant rates remain largely unchanged. Data demonstrating pediatric donor heart refusal rates of 50% suggest optimizing donor utilization is critical. This review evaluated the impact of donor characteristics surrounding the time of death on pediatric heart transplant recipient outcomes.

Prolonged Cold Ischemia Time Offsets the Benefit of Human Leukocyte Antigen Matching in Deceased Donor Kidney Transplant.

The consequences of prolonging cold ischemia time (CIT) to facilitate HLA matching in kidney transplantation are not known.

5-HT and 5-HT receptors contribute to the exacerbation of targeted and non-targeted effects of ionizing radiation-induced cell death in human colon carcinoma cells.

Serotonin (5-HT) is implicated in the underlying mechanisms which mediate cell death following ionizing radiation exposure, however, effects appear to be cell type-dependent. We sought to further char...

Inhibitor of apoptosis-stimulating protein of p53 inhibits ferroptosis and alleviates intestinal ischemia/reperfusion-induced acute lung injury.

Acute lung injury (ALI) is a life-threatening disorder with high rates of morbidity and mortality. Reactive oxygen species and epithelial apoptosis are involved in the pathogenesis of acute lung injur...

Astragaloside IV alleviates ischemia reperfusion-induced apoptosis by inhibiting the activation of key factors in death receptor pathway and mitochondrial pathway.

Apoptosis plays an important role in cerebral ischemia-reperfusion injury and triggers a series of pathological changes which may even be life-threatening. Astragaloside-IV (AS-IV), a natural compound...

Brain death effects on lung microvasculature in an experimental model of lung donor.

Brain death (BD) triggers important hemodynamic and inflammatory alterations, compromising the viability of organs suitable for transplantation. To better understand the microcirculatory alterations i...

The INTERPRET Inotrope Evaluation and Research Patient Registry is a longitudinal, observational study designed to look at the demographics and outcomes of heart failure patients on inotro...

Impact of Variable Types of Preconditioning Upon the Inotrope Score in Adult Patients, Undergoing Cardiac Surgery

Preconditioning (PC) of the heart occurs when brief exposure to a stimulus protects the heart from subsequent ischemia. PC stimulus may be (ischemic ; pharmacologic or Physical).

Study Of The Metabolic Parameters Of Uterine Muscle Cells

To date, no transplant has allowed pregnancy from a donor in a state of brain death. One of the main reservations lies in the ischemic properties of the uterine graft between the sampling ...

PDE5i Use in Renal Transplant Recipients

Ischemia-reperfusion (IRI) injuries are common in renal transplantation and cause poor patient outcomes. Ischemia occurs after the donor's death and reperfusion occurs after kidney implant...

Anti-T-Lymphocyte Globulin (ATG) in Renal Transplantation of Kidneys With a Non-Heart-Beating (NHB) Donor

One of the greatest problems in renal transplantation is the shortage of donor kidneys. Kidneys of non-heart-beating donors (NHB) are a possible solution, but transplantation is accompanie...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Exposure of myocardial tissue to brief, repeated periods of vascular occlusion in order to render the myocardium resistant to the deleterious effects of ISCHEMIA or REPERFUSION. The period of pre-exposure and the number of times the tissue is exposed to ischemia and reperfusion vary, the average being 3 to 5 minutes.

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.

Standards for limiting worker exposure to airborne contaminants. They are the maximum concentration in air at which it is believed that a particular substance will not produce adverse health effects with repeated daily exposure. It can be a time-weighted average (TLV-TWA), a short-term value (TLV-STEL), or an instantaneous value (TLV-Ceiling). They are expressed either as parts per million (ppm) or milligram per cubic meter (mg/m3).

A technique in which tissue is rendered resistant to the deleterious effects of prolonged ischemia and reperfusion by prior exposure to brief, repeated periods of vascular occlusion. (Am J Physiol 1995 May;268(5 Pt 2):H2063-7, Abstract)

Experiments designed to determine the potential toxic effects of one-time, short-term exposure to a chemical or chemicals.
