Although the number of lung transplants in Spain is increasing annually, more organs are required to ease waiting lists. Controlled non-heart beating donors (NHBD) (Maastricht III) are a reality at international level, and contribute significantly to increasing donor numbers. In this study, we present our NHBD protocol and the initial experience in Spain using lung grafts from this type of donor. Three bilateral lung transplants were performed between January 2012 and December 2014. Preservation was by ex-vivo lung perfusion in 2 cases and by traditional cold ischemia in the other...

The disbalance between the number of candidates to liver transplant and the number of liver grafts leads to waiting list mortality. Two potential ways of increasing the number of liver grafts are split liver transplantation and the transplantation of grafts from non-heart beating donors. Both of them were discussed in a consensus meeting of the Spanish Society of Liver Transplantation in October 2012. This paper outlines the conclusions of that meeting.

Familial amyloidotic polyneuropathy (FAP) is a hereditary intractable disease induced by mutated transthyretin (TTR). Since TTR is predominantly synthesized by liver, liver transplantation has been performed to halt the clinical symptoms of FAP in the worldwide. It has been well documented that liver transplantation could halt the progression of FAP manifestations. However, the surgery could not prevent ocular symptoms and in some cases, cardiopathy and neuroparthy progressed even after liver trasplantation...

The number of lung transplantations that are performed in Spain continues to grow, with 235 transplant recipients 2010. Non-heart-beating donations have contributed to this upward progression. Our Lung Transplant Unit began its activity in October 2008 and during these last three years 97% of the transplant interventions performed have been successful. In order to increase the number of donations, we have developed a non-heart-beating donor program as part of the existing organs program in our hospital. In doing so, the development of a multi-organic preservation method (lung, liver and kidney), which we call «Bithermia Preservation», was necessary...

Amyloidosis (Am), a systemic disease, has poor prognosis because of organ damage produced by protein deposition in the extracellular space. Although heart transplantation (HTx) is possible, donor availability concerns and high mortality make this approach controversial. The Spanish Registry for Heart Transplantation includes 25 Am patients (54 +/- 9 years): 13 with AL type, 2 with AA and 10 with TTR mutation. Fifteen patients (60%) died during follow-up (4.9 +/- 1.3 years): 9 AL-Am patients, both AA-Am patients and 4 with TTR-Am...

INTRODUCTION AND GOALS: Renal procurement after a period of heart st op demands a previous knowledge of ischemia-reperfusion injuries means. To study cell injury mechanisms an experimental study has been designed in pigs, with different rangres of warm ischemia (0-30-45 and 90 min). The main goal was to research on the basis of ischemic injury. MATERIAL AND METHODS: Biochemical parameters (creatinine, urine output), energetic loading (ATP, ADP, AMP and global energetic loading) and pathological studies as long as survival analysis by 5th day were completed...

OBJECTIVE: Our aim was to analyze acceptance of cadaveric and living organ donation for transplantation among resident doctors, given that they are the new professionals of medicine who will have to encourage and develop transplant programs. MATERIALS AND METHODS: A random survey was performed on resident doctors in a third-level hospital with an organ transplant program which is accredited for undergraduate and postgraduate education (n = 171). Attitudes toward cadaveric and living donation were evaluated using a questionnaire including various psychosocial variables that might affect such attitudes...

This paper describes the general situation regarding heart transplantation in Spain and the results obtained using the technique, incorporating data for the year 2004. In 2004, 294 heart transplants were carried out, which brings the total number of procedures performed since 1984 to 4680. Clinically, the typical heart transplant recipient in Spain is male, aged around 50 years, has blood group A, has non-revascularizable coronary artery disease, and is in NYHA functional class IV/IV. The percentage of emergency heart transplantations was 35%, which is higher than in the previous year (29%), and higher than the mean for the preceding 5 years (22%)...

Transplantation of the heart has become an accepted method for the treatment of terminal cardiac failure. Despite obvious advances in the care of patients after trasplantation a number of problems exist. The authors summarize their experience with the long-term follow-up of 100 adult patients with transplantations made in the Brno Centre of Cardiovascular and Transplantation Surgery. One-year survival in the group of patients is 80%, three-year survival 69%. The authors discuss indications and contraindications of cardiac transplantations, necessary preoperative and postoperative examinations, they follow-up the most serious complications during the posttransplantation period...

There is nowadays a revolution of immunosuppressive regimens for trasplantation. The investigation of new drugs on experimental and clinical protocols is very important because is intended to find a better immunosuppressive drug. This activity is based on a better knowledge of immunology and physiopathology of rejection. Alternative non pharmacological methods are used for the control of severe and repetitive rejection and the study of quimerism and xenotransplantation.

The high hospital mortality due to primary graft failure, together with the ever more frequent use of "Suboptimum" donors because of the scarcity of organs has, in the recent years, caused renewed interest in perfectioning techniques of cardiac preservation. The numerous studies supporting the benefits of a period of controlled warm reperfusion after global ischemia, and the growth of the continuous warm blood cardioplegia, led us to the evolution of our own technique for myocardial protection during transplantation...
