INTRODUCTION: Lung disease is the major cause of death among cystic fibrosis (CF) patients, affecting 80% of the population. The impact of extracorporeal circulation (ECC) during transplantation has not been fully clarified. This study aimed to evaluate the outcomes of lung transplantation for CF in a single center, and to assess the impact of ECC on survival. METHODS: We performed a retrospective observational study of all trasplanted CF patients in a single center between 1992 and 2011...

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...

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...

Renal transplantation is the best therapeutic choice in patients with end-stage renal disease (ESRD), with donation from living donors the alternative that offers the best medium- and long-term results. Because of the limited number of cadaver donors and the progressive increase in donor age, transplantation from living donors has become the renal replacement treatment of choice. Several studies have demonstrated that donation does not increase the donor's risk of developing ESRD in the long term. Some studies have asserted that a donor's life expectancy increases as a result of the comprehensive study and screening process they must undergo...

INTRODUCTION AND AIMS: It has been described that patients who receive a transplant display a better Health Related Quality of Life (HRQoL). Our objective was to describe the HRQoL before and after a solid organ transplantation, comparing results among various transplantations. METHODS: This HRQoL study using the SF-36 was implemented before as well as at 3 and 12 months posttransplantation. Posttransplantation were compared with pretransplantation scores as well as with the general population...

Recently, the work group made up of the National Transplant Organization (Organización Nacional de Trasplantes, ONT), Spanish Society of Intensive, Critical Medicine and Coronary Units (Sociedad Española de Medicina Intensiva, Crítica y de Unidades Coronarias, SEMICYUC) and other Scientific Societies have recommended using 15 mg/kg of methyl prednisolone during the management of lung donors after brain death. This recommendation is based on descriptive and retrospective studies. However, the review of different experimental and clinical studies also suggests a potential benefit of using steroids in either thoracic or abdominal organ donors during management strategies...

BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE: To describe the characteristics observed in patients diagnosed of hepatopulmonary syndrome (HPS) waiting for orthotopic liver transplantation and those who underwent liver trasplantation. PATIENTS AND METHOD: An observational prospective descriptive study was carried out of patients waiting for liver transplantation in whom data of liver illness and lung function tests were analyzed. RESULTS: 107 patients of 53.69 years average age were studied (7...

Invasive fungal infections (IFI) are the third cause of infectious complications in recipients of solid organ transplants (SOT), showing an incidence of 5-42% depending of the trasplanted organ. Moreover, IFI account for significant morbility and mortality in SOT, ranging between 25-95% depending on the type of fungus and its organ localization. Different strategies (prophylaxis, preemptive treatment, treatment, antifungal combinations, routes of administration) have been tested to improve the prognosis of IFI in SOT...

AIM: To study adrenomedullin (AM) plasma levels in patients with severe lung disease and to analyze the relationship between AM and heart changes, hemodynamics and blood gases. METHODS: Case control study of 56 patients (36 men, 20 women) with severe lung disease and 9 control subjects (7 men, 2 women). Patients with end-stage pulmonary disease, including chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD, n=11), cystic fibrosis (CF, 26), idiopatic pulmonary fibrosis (ILD, n=9), and idiopatic pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH, n=10), who were evaluated for lung trasplantation between January 1997 and September 2000, and nine patients who underwent lung surgery for a solitary benign nodule...
