BACKGROUND Extracorporeal life support (ECLS) is increasingly used to manage cardiac and pulmonary dysfunction. The impact of obesity on outcomes of ECLS is poorly defined. In this study, we aimed to examine in-hospital mortality, resource use, complications, and readmissions in obese versus nonobese patients receiving ECLS. METHODS A retrospective cohort study of all adult ECLS patients with and without an obesity diagnosis was performed using the 2010-16 Nationwide Readmissions Database (NRD)....

Right ventricular (RV) failure is significantly associated with morbidity and mortality after left ventricular assist device (LVAD) implantation. However, it remains unclear whether LVAD implantation could worsen RV function. Therefore, we aimed to investigate the effect of LVAD implantation on RV function by comparing RV energetics derived from the RV pressure-volume curve between before and after LVAD implantation. This exploratory observational study was performed between September 2016 and J...

Biocompatibility of ventricular assist devices (VADs) has been steadily improving; yet the rate of neurological events remains unacceptably high. Recent speculation for elevated stroke rates centers on ingestion of thrombi originating upstream of the pump, such as in the ventricle or left atrial appendage. These thrombi may be ejected by the VAD or become deposited within the blood flow pathway, presenting serious complications to the patient. This study was performed to visualize and quantify t...

OBJECTIVE With the new era of increasing use of mechanical circulatory support (MCS) in children, seemingly more patients with elevated pulmonary vascular resistance (PVR) are having positive outcomes. The purpose of this study is to define the effect of MCS on pediatric patients listed for heart transplant with an elevated PVR. METHODS The United Network for Organ Sharing (UNOS) database was used to identify patients ages 0-18 at the time of listing for heart transplant between 2010 and 2019 wh...

Retrograde type A dissection after thoracic endovascular aortic repair has been a major drawback of endovascular treatment. This study investigated the biomechanical mechanism of stent-graft induced new lesions after implantation and analyzed the relationship between radial force and spring-back force of the stent graft when it was implanted virtually under different oversizing ratios. Based on the computed tomography angiography images, a three-dimensional geometric model of a patient-specific ...

Gastrointestinal (GI) bleeding is a common complication following placement of continuous-flow left ventricular assist devices (LVADs) in patients with advanced heart failure. Secondary events arising as a result of GI bleeding have not been well-described. Furthermore, attribution of these events to bleeding is complicated by the interruption or de-intensification of antithrombotic therapy while bleeding is controlled. The purpose of this study was to assess the incidence of pump thrombosis and...

The aim of this document is to inform the scientific community of sparse preliminary results regarding advanced supportive therapies and technology-driven systems in addition to highlighting the benefits and possibilities of performing concise research during challenging times Advanced organ support for lung and heart offers the possibility to buy the time needed for recovery However, remaining a bridging strategy, extracorporeal life support cannot act as the ultimate treatment of the underlyin...

BACKGROUND Biolasol is a newly developed preserving solution for cold organ storage prior to transplantation. To date, only animal model experiments results are available. OBJECTIVE The aim of this single center analysis was to summarize the clinical experience concerning the early post-transplant course of kidney grafts preserved with Biolasol in comparison with other preservation solutions. METHODS Before transplantation, 173 kidney grafts were preserved using Biolasol and 240 organs with othe...

Coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) has been declared a pandemic touching thousands of patients all around the world. Patients supported with left ventricular assist devices (LVADs) are usually affected by long-standing cardiovascular diseases and subjected to variations of the normal cardiovascular physiology, thus requiring an even closer monitoring during the COVID-19 outbreak. Nevertheless, the COVID-19 pandemic led to a drastic reduction of routine clinical activities and a consequent risk ...
