Abstract Antibody-mediated rejection (AMR) of cardiac allografts mediated by anti-HLA Donor Specific Antibodies (DSA) is one of the major barriers to successful transplantation for the treatment of end-stage heart failure. Therapeutic plasma exchange (TPE) is a first-line treatment for pre-transplant desensitization. However, indications for treatment regimens and treatment end-points have not been well established. In this study, we investigated how sera dilutions could guide TPE regimens for e...

The use of mechanical circulatory support for posttransplant right ventricular (RV) failure is well described. Nakatani and colleagues first reported on the feasibility of the right heart assist for acute RV failure after heart transplantation. However, longest possible duration of the RV support is unknown for recovery following heart transplantation. We report a case of successful use of a Thoratec (Thoratec Corporation, Pleasanton, Calif) ventricular assist device (IVAD) as a bridge to recove...

II (Thoratec, Pleasanton, Calif) axial flow pumps have sustained patients for 4 years. Given the reservations about survival advantage and economic viability of cardiac transplantation in United Network for Organ Sharing status II patients, properly structured clinical trials to compare LVADs with transplantation or continued medical therapy are indicated and probably overdue. Indeed, for those who wish to avoid the side effects of immunosuppression, a rotary blood pump might provide a realistic...
