PURPOSE OF REVIEW Hematopoietic stem cell as well as solid-organ transplantation is being carried out with increasing frequency throughout the world. Lower respiratory tract infections (LRTIs) remain a common life-threatening complication faced by the transplant recipients. The purpose of this review is to provide up-to-date information on pulmonary(More)
The diagnosis of active and latent tuberculosis infection (LTBI) remains a challenge, especially in light of the fact that the tuberculin skin test (TST), which has been used to diagnose LTBI for over a century, has many well-known drawbacks. This study aimed to compare the diagnostic performance of the T-cell-based interferon-gamma releasing assay (IGRA)(More)
BACKGROUND Recipients of solid organ transplants (SOTs) are at higher risk to develop pulmonary infections (PIs) owing to their immunocompromised state. Flexible bronchoscopy (FB) is frequently performed to diagnose nature of these infections. The aim of 12-year review was to evaluate the demographic characteristics of SOT recipients with PIs and to study(More)
BACKGROUND Pulmonary hypertension (PHT) and right ventricular (RV) dysfunction are among the commonly observed and potentially serious complications following heart transplantation. RV dysfunction is reported to occur in as much as half of these patients. In this study, the authors sought to examine the prevalence and the course of these prognostically(More)
Diagnosis of latent Mycobacterium tuberculosis infection (LTBI) by the tuberculin skin test (TST) is hampered due to anergy and impaired sensitivity in chronic renal failure (CRF) patients. We aimed to compare the diagnostic performance of the TST with that of interferon-gamma immunospot (T-SPOT.TB®) assay in diagnosing LTBI in CRF and immunocompetent (IC)(More)
