BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE Heart transplantation is a procedure with a high mortality rate. Altered kidney function (AKF) after a heart transplant is common. The purpose of this study was to determine the incidence of and associated factors for renal dysfunction among patients who underwent heart transplantation in our hospital between January 2006 and November(More)
We present a patient with panfacial neurofibromatosis type 1 who underwent allogeneic transplantation of facial structures, which was complicated by severe rhabdomyolysis and temporary oligoanuria. Because of his underlying disease, this 35 year-old man, weighing 68 kg and with a body mass index (BMI) of 27, had undergone 17 operations for resection(More)
INTRODUCTION Invasive assessment of pulmonary artery pressure (PAP), via right heart catheterization, is part of the usual protocol prior to heart transplantation. Echocardiography is considered a valuable technique to evaluate PAP. We sought to determine the reliability of measurements of PAP via a noninvasive technique, echocardiography, in relation to(More)
INTRODUCTION Invasive estimation of pulmonary pressure is part of the usual protocol prior to heart transplantation. The aim of this study was to compare the results of 2 different vasodilators, nitric oxide (NO) and prostacyclin, in an acute vasodilator test (AVT) for patients with pulmonary venous hypertension. MATERIALS AND METHODS From January 2000 to(More)
INTRODUCTION Pulmonary hypertension (PHT) is associated with greater posttransplant mortality. In the last few years, many vasodilator drugs have been developed and some patients have therefore been transplanted. However, conflicting data exist regarding the impact of reversible PHT on posttransplant outcomes. The aim of this study was to determine the(More)
BACKGROUND A recent study proposed a risk index (McCluskey index) based on 7 parameters to identify the transfusion needs of patients during surgery and in the first 24 hours postoperation. The initial objective of our study was to validate this predictor for blood product transfusions. PATIENTS AND METHODS We undertook a retrospective, observational(More)
