Members of the Clinical Practice Committee, American Society of Transplantation, have attempted to define referral criteria for solid organ transplantation. Work done by the Clinical Practice Committee does not represent the official position of the American Society of Transplantation. Recipients for solid organ transplantation are growing in numbers, progressively outstripping the availability of organ donors. As there may be discrepancies in referral practice and, therefore, inequity may… Expand
The start of the transplant journey: Referral for pediatric solid organ transplantation
TLDR
Steps that providers can take to enhance transplant referral are elucidated and suggestions for much needed research within this area are provided. Expand
Lung transplantation for cystic fibrosis.
TLDR
Leaders in transplantation and CF met together in Lansdowne, Virginia, to consider the state of the art in lung transplantation for CF in an international context, focusing on advances in surgical technique, measurement of outcomes, use of prognostic criteria, variations in local control over listing, and prioritization. Expand
Extended donor criteria for lung transplantation--a clinical reality.
  • C. Aigner, G. Winkler, +5 authors W. Klepetko
  • Medicine
  • European journal of cardio-thoracic surgery : official journal of the European Association for Cardio-thoracic Surgery
  • 2005
TLDR
The use of lung donors who fail to meet standard criteria does not impair short and medium term results compared to standard lung donors, and liberalisation of donor criteria might help to overcome donor shortage. Expand
The Psychosocial Evaluation of Transplant Candidates
TLDR
The role of psychosocial consultants should not be to make a determination regarding the patient’s worthiness as a candidate, but to assist the transplant selection committee in making the best clinical decision based on current available data. Expand
The preoperative evaluation of the transplanted patient for nontransplant surgery.
TLDR
With the improved success of solid-organ transplantation, there has been an increased willingness to transplant individuals previously felt to be unsuitable for such procedures, and hence, an increasing number of recipients may require medical care not specifically related to the transplant. Expand
Liver transplantation.
TLDR
There are difficulties in determining the optimal criteria for listing patients for transplantation and for treating some of the complications arising after transplantation such as recurrence of disease and complications of immunosuppression, e.g. renal failure, malignancy and vascular disease. Expand
Health insurance and cardiac transplantation: a call for reform.
TLDR
A government-sponsored, multidisciplinary task force is called for to address the funding requirement for cardiac transplantation and its implications on the organ donor consent process, and its potential impact on organ donation rates. Expand
Clinical Practice Guidelines on Wait-Listing for Kidney Transplantation: Consistent and Equitable?
TLDR
There is a case for developing comprehensive, methodologically robust, and regularly updated guidelines on wait-listing for kidney transplantation, based on life expectancy, comorbidities, lifestyle, and psychosocial factors. Expand
Criteria for and Appropriateness of Renal Transplantation in Elderly Patients With End-Stage Renal Disease: A Literature Review and Position Statement on Behalf of the European Renal Association-European Dialysis and Transplant Association Descartes Working Group and European Renal Best Practice
TLDR
Evidence for the benefits and risks of RT in the elderly in elderly patients is looked at to answer the following questions: Should RT be advocated for elderly patients, and what should be the criteria to accept elderly patients on the waiting list for RT. Expand
The Liver Transplant Patient Part 1: Managing Adults with Cirrhosis
TLDR
The primary care physician’s role of identifying patients with liver disease who may require liver transplantation and optimizing management of liver disease while the patient awaits transplantation is discussed. Expand

Indications for pediatric liver transplantation.
TLDR
This review discusses the indications for orthotopic liver transplantation (OLT) in children and provides guidelines for the appropriate time to list children for transplant and the importance of malnutrition and poor development as listing criteria is stressed. Expand
A comparison of the effects of dialysis and renal transplantation on the survival of older uremic patients.
TLDR
Renal transplantation seems to confer a substantial survival advantage over dialysis in patients with end-stage renal failure who are rigorously screened and considered suitable for renal transplantation. Expand
Risks and benefits of kidney and pancreas transplantation for diabetic patients.
TLDR
The risks and benefits of combined kidney and pancreas transplantation are outlined in this review and should be carefully considered by potential transplant recipients and their physicians. Expand
COMPARISON OF MORTALITY IN ALL PATIENTS ON DIALYSIS , PATIENTS ON DIALYSIS AWAITING TRANSPLANTATION , AND RECIPIENTS OF A FIRST CADAVERIC TRANSPLANT
A BSTRACT Background The extent to which renal allotransplantation — as compared with long-term dialysis — improves survival among patients with end-stage renal disease is controversial, becauseExpand
Increased immunosuppressive vulnerability in elderly renal transplant recipients.
TLDR
It is possible that the vulnerability to immunosuppression of older renal transplant patients may be very different from that of younger patients, and to test this hypothesis, a large group of renal transplant recipients were analyzed with regard to their balance of acute rejection versus death due to infection. Expand
Prevalence, predictors, and consequences of late nephrology referral at a tertiary care center.
TLDR
It is concluded that late referral to the nephrologist is common in the United States and is associated with poor pre-ESRD care. Expand

TLDR
From these results, it appears that the areas most helpful to participants include information in the following areas: immunosuppressive drugs, rejection, biopsy, and infection. Expand
Patient survival after renal transplantation; more than 25 years follow-up.
TLDR
Time-related changes in patient management were responsible for improved patient survival in the first year after transplantation during the study period, and there was no effect of the type of pretransplantation dialysis or the duration of pretranplantation haemodialysis on post-transplantation mortality.

Caring for families of pediatric transplant recipients: psychosocial implications.

TLDR
The psychosocial adaptation of pediatric transplant recipients can be promoted through support and counseling from health professionals caring for these families, and effective methods of providing psychological support and promoting adaptation in these children are identified. Expand
