BACKGROUND: In the past decade, C4d has emerged as a potential marker for antibody-mediated rejection (AMR); however, evidence on its use as a prognostic tool has been controversial. Although the International Society for Heart and Lung Transplantation guideline recommends early routine surveillance of C4d in heart transplantation, there is no consensus on its value in the pathologic assessment of AMR. Herein we present a correlation analysis of C4d immunoreactivity in endomyocardial biopsies with clinical cardiac dysfunction, cellular rejection, human leukocyte antigen (HLA) status, cardiac allograft vasculopathy (CAV) and death...

BACKGROUND: The electro-hydraulically actuated Carmat total artificial heart (C-TAH) is designed to replace the heart in patients with end-stage heart failure, either as bridge to transplant or destination therapy. It provides pulsatile flow and contains bio-prosthetic blood contacting materials. A clinical feasibility study was conducted to evaluate the C-TAH safety and performance. METHODS: Hospitalized patients, at imminent risk of death from irreversible biventricular failure despite optimal medical management, and not eligible for transplant or eligible but on extracorporeal life support, were enrolled...

BACKGROUND: An elevated serum level of interleukin-6 (IL-6) in pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH) patients results in a greater symptom burden and increased mortality; however, the mechanisms underlying these observations remain unclear. Because both pre-clinical and clinical data associate elevated IL-6 levels with impaired cardiac function, we hypothesized that the adverse effects of IL-6 in PAH result, in part, from right ventricular (RV) dysfunction. METHODS: We analyzed the relationship between IL-6 and RV function in 40 patients with PAH identified in our institutional PAH registry...

BACKGROUND: In idiopathic pulmonary arterial hypertension (IPAH) treatment goals include improving right ventricular (RV) function, hemodynamics and symptoms to move patients to a low-risk category for adverse clinical outcomes. No data are available on the effect of upfront combination therapy on RV improvement as compared with monotherapy. The aim of this study was to evaluate echocardiographic RV morphology and function in patients affected by IPAH and treated with different strategies...

Javier Carbone
In this issue of the Journal of Heart and Lung Transplantation, Marrón-Liñares et al report the results of an interesting study in which they evaluated 51 genes associated with the complement pathway in a small number of heart recipients to explore their relationship with antibody-mediated rejection (AMR). Next-generation sequencing was used in 46 heart transplant recipients (23 with AMR and 23 without AMR). The authors identified a significant association of 2 single-nucleotide polymorphisms with the absence or presence of AMR, respectively, p...

BACKGROUND: There has been little investigation into the potential interaction of recipient characteristics with the association of pre-transplant renal functions and survival after lung transplantation. In this study we tested the hypothesis that association of pre-transplant renal function and post-transplant mortality varies among recipient subgroups. METHODS: We queried the United Network for Organ Sharing (UNOS) database for adult patients (≥18 years of age) undergoing lung transplantation between May 2005 and March 2015...
