Preoperative INTERMACS profiles determine postoperative outcomes in critically ill patients undergoing emergency heart transplantation: analysis of the Spanish National Heart Transplant Registry
(American Heart Association, 2013-05-14)
[Abstract] Background. Postoperative outcomes of patients with advanced heart failure undergoing ventricular assist device implantation are strongly influenced by their preoperative Interagency Registry for Mechanically ...
Polymorphisms in genes related to the complement system and antibody-mediated cardiac allograft rejection
[Abstract] Background. Heart transplantation (HT) is a life-saving treatment for patients with end-stage heart failure. One of the main problems after HT is the humoral response termed antibody-mediated rejection (AMR). ...
Indoleamine, 2-3 dioxygenase activity could be an early marker of graft rejection in heart transplantation
[Abstract] Background. The indoleamine, 2-3 dioxygenase (IDO) is an inducible intracellular enzyme with immunosuppressive effects mainly on lymphocyte populations. It has been postulated that indirect determination of IDO ...
Clinical profile and causes of death according to ejection fraction in patients with heart failure cared for in a specialized Cardiology unit
[Abstract] Background and objective. Patients with heart failure are classified into three phenotypes based on left ventricular ejection fraction. This work aimed to compare the clinical profile, treatment, prognosis, ...
AGT haplotype in ITGA4 gene is related to antibody-mediated rejection in heart transplant patients
(Stanislaw Stepkowski,, 2019-07-23)
[Abstract] Introduction. One of the main problems involved in heart transplantation (HT) is antibody-mediated rejection (AMR). Many aspects of AMR are still unresolved, including its etiology, diagnosis and treatment. ...
Infectious complications associated with short-term mechanical circulatory support in urgent heart transplant candidates
[Abstract] Introduction and objectives. Short-term mechanical circulatory support is frequently used as a bridge to heart transplant in Spain. The epidemiology and prognostic impact of infectious complications in these ...
The prognosis of noncutaneous, nonlymphomatous malignancy after heart transplantation: data from the spanish post-heart transplant tumour registry
[Abstract] Introduction. Malignancy is a major complication in the management of solid organ transplant patients. Skin cancers show a better prognosis than other neoplasms, but not all others are equal: Ideally, patient ...
Significance of potassium alterations. Beyond heart failure
Venoarterial Extracorporeal Membrane Oxygenation with or without Simultaneous Intra-Aortic Balloon Pump Support as a Direct Bridge to Heart Transplantation: Results from a Nationwide Spanish Registry
(Oxford Academic, 2019-06-30)
[Abstract] OBJECTIVES To investigate the potential clinical benefit of an intra-aortic balloon pump (IABP) in patients supported with venoarterial extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (VA-ECMO) as a bridge to heart ...
Prognostic value of serum lactate levels in patients undergoing urgent heart transplant: a subanalysis of the ASIS-TC spanish multicenter study
[Abstract] Introduction and objectives. To study the prognostic value of serum lactate in patients under temporary preoperative mechanical circulatory support who underwent urgent heart transplant. Methods. We conducted ...
