Recent advances in the management of patients with adult congenital heart disease (ACHD) have led to an increased number of patients who may develop heart failure and require heart transplantation (HTx). The purpose of this study was to evaluate early and mid-term postoperative outcomes after HTx with the use of Organ Care System (OCS) in a cohort of ACHD patients transplanted at our tertiary center. All consecutive HTx performed from January 2015 to January 2019 at our institution were… 

Outcome and Midterm Survival after Heart Transplantation Is Independent from Donor Length of Stay in the Intensive Care Unit

Although the donors differed in baseline parameters, the donor LOS in the ICU was not associated with altered recipient survival or outcome after HTx, and in this retrospective analysis, the groups did not differ in all of the assessed parameters.

Ex-Vivo Preservation with the Organ Care System in High Risk Heart Transplantation

OCS heart allowed safe transplantation of surgically complex recipients with excellent one-year outcomes, despite long preservation times and unfavourable donor characteristics, and trends towards decreased ventilation times and fewer ECLS treatments are observed.

Can adequate hemodynamic management of brain-dead donors improve donor organ procurement?

There is increasing evidence that adequate donor management with a goal of optimization of organ function is essential to maximize the number of organs that can be procured. Therefore, identification

Increasing Complexity of Heart Transplantation in Patients With Congenital Heart Disease.

Patients with CHD undergoing cardiac transplantation in the recent era were more complex, they had a greater number of prior cardiac operations, and more often underwent complex vascular reconstructions and required more prolonged intraoperative preparation.

Successful cardiac transplantation outcomes in patients with adult congenital heart disease

Patients with congenital heart disease undergoing heart transplantation by adult cardiac surgeons in a large academic medical centre are characterised to describe successful outcomes associated with the multidisciplinary approach to the evaluation and treatment of adults with congenITAL heart disease (ACHD) undergoing orthotopic heart transplants (OHT).

The Challenging Pathway Toward Heart Transplant Listing for Adult Congenital Heart Disease Patients

Survival for ACHD patients with end-stage heart failure is reduced severely either in waiting list for transplant or excluded indicating the potential need of mechanical circulatory support as bridge to transplant or as destination therapy to improve survival likelihood.

A Review of Heart Transplantation for Adults With Congenital Heart Disease.

Assessment of contraindications to heart transplantation for the general population, factors specific to ACHD should be considered, including pulmonary hypertension, cyanosis, liver disease, previous surgeries, and the degree of allosensitization.

The experience with cardiac transplantation for ACHD patients with end-stage heart failure is growing, and high-risk patient subsets have been defined, and outcomes should continue to improve.
