Purpose Heart transplantation (HTx) is routine in many eligible patients of different ages including elderly. We investigated the 5 year to 10 year survival outcomes of elderly heart transplantation patients by analyzing the UNOS database. Methods 51,899 patients underwent heart transplantation that were reviewed from the UNOS database (1987-2014). HTx patients were divided into two different age groups based on recipient age, Results Out of 51,899 HTx patients, 51,165 were Conclusion Older hear...

Purpose Coronary artery disease (CAD) has been considered a relative contraindication for concomitant cardiac surgery during lung transplantation. We investigated a cohort of older patients who underwent concomitant coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG) with lung transplantation, to determine whether surgical outcomes were acceptable. Methods Lung transplant procedures with concomitant CABG between March 2012 and July 2019 were retrospectively analyzed. The patients investigated were over 70 ye...

Purpose Due to the high mortality of idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF) patients on the waiting list, potential older donors are considered frequently for lung transplantation. We investigated the survival outcome of IPF patients receiving lungs from donors aged Methods We retrospectively studied IPF transplant recipients that underwent either a single or double lung transplant at our center (Mar-2012 to Jun-2019) and divided patients into two groups (donors age Results Patients (n=388) were se...

Purpose The method of cardiorespiratory support used during lung transplantation (LTx) has been debated. This study serves to compare survival after LTx in patients who received support from either extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO) or cardiopulmonary bypass (CPB). Methods We studied 565 LTx performed at a single institution between March 2012 and June 2019. Concomitant cardiac procedures were excluded. 118 underwent CPB, 49 underwent ECMO, and 398 were considered “off-pump”, as they rec...

Purpose There are controversies regarding which side of the lungs, under-perfused versus over-perfused to be replaced when performing single lung transplantation (LTx). Theoretically, under-perfused lung appears to be better replaced rather than over-perfused lung; however, occasionally over-perfused lung is chosen due to limited organ availability, size discrepancy between the sides, or anatomical complexity, and this is recognized as ‘side-mismatching’ in single LTx. This study aims at evaluat...
