BACKGROUND: Faecal microbiota transplantation (FMT) is an effective treatment for recurrent Clostridium difficile infection. In short-term the treatment has been shown to be safe, however, there are no large, long-term follow-up studies looking into the potential adverse effects. AIM: To analyse the long-term effect of FMT treatment in patients with recurrent C. difficile infection and to compare the outcome to antibiotic treated patients. METHODS: Altogether 84 patients of which 45 received a FMT treatment and 39 served as controls receiving antibiotics for the infection were followed on average for 3...

Consensus statements on the selection of lung transplant candidates have consistently identified older age as a relative contraindication to transplantation. A combination of population-level demographic changes, revision of the lung allocation score (LAS), and clearer data on outcomes in elderly transplant recipients has, however, driven a steady increase in the threshold at which age is taken into consideration. This article reviews the current state of lung transplantation in elderly patients with an emphasis on the factors that have increased lung transplantation in older age groups, their expected outcomes including survival and health-related quality of life, and the factors that go in to appropriate candidate and procedure selection in this population...

OBJECTIVES: To review long-term transplant-free survival and quality of life of patients with biliary atresia. METHODS: A retrospective study reviewing all patients with Kasai operation between 1 January 1980 and 31 December 2015 was performed to evaluate the transplant-free survival. Subgroup analysis of patients over 20 years old was carried out to assess the quality of life using the Short Form-36 Health Survey and incidences of disease-related complications...

Atypical hemolytic uremic syndrome and C3 glomerulopathy (dense deposit disease and C3 glomerulonephritis) are characterized as inappropriate activation of the alternative complement pathway. Genetic mutations affecting the alternative complement pathway regulating proteins (complement factor H, I, membrane cofactor protein and complement factor H-related proteins) and triggers (such as infection, surgery, pregnancy and autoimmune disease flares) result in the clinical manifestation of these diseases. A decade ago, prognosis of these disease states was quite poor, with most patients developing end-stage renal disease...

In cirrhosis of liver, hepatic encephalopathy (HE) has an important impact on health-related quality of life. It is important to define whether HE is episodic, recurrent, or persistent; types A, B, or C; overt HE or covert HE; and spontaneous or precipitated. The overt HE is clinically evident and needs hospitalization. Nonabsorbable disaccharides, rifaximin, and probiotics are proven to be useful in the treatment of overt HE. Covert HE includes both minimal HE and grade I HE. It is not apparent on routine clinical examination...

BACKGROUND: Adult congenital heart disease (ACHD) prevalence is increasing worldwide, with advanced heart failure (HF) as a leading cause of death. Limited data are available on durable mechanical circulatory support (MCS) in ACHD patients. METHODS: ACHD patients from the Interagency Registry for Mechanically Assisted Circulatory Support (INTERMACS) database were identified and propensity matched with non-ACHD patients using risk factors from the INTERMACS Seventh Annual Report...

OBJECTIVE: To gain insight into how primary immunodeficiencies (PIDs) affect children's health status and quality of life. STUDY DESIGN: The French Reference Center for PIDs conducted a prospective multicenter cohort that enrolled participants who met all criteria: patients included in the French Reference Center for PIDs registry, children younger than18 years, and living in France. Participants were asked to complete both a health questionnaire and a health-related quality of life (HR-QoL) questionnaire...

BACKGROUND: A projected shortage of hematopoietic cell transplantation (HCT) health professionals was identified as a major issue during the National Marrow Donor Program (NMDP)/Be The Match System Capacity Initiative. Work-related distress and work-life balance were noted to be potential barriers to recruitment/retention. This study examined these barriers and their association with career satisfaction across HCT disciplines. METHODS: A cross-sectional, 90-item, web-based survey was administered to advanced practice providers (APP), nurses, physicians, pharmacists, and social workers in 2015...

Transfusion-dependent thalassemia (TDT) is an inherited disorder characterized by absent or defective production of α- or β-hemoglobin chains. If untreated, the disease invariably culminates in death in early infancy due to cardiac failure or overwhelming infection. Although there is clear evidence of good health-related quality of life and return to normal life style, the choice to undergo hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (HSCT) remains a challenge because of the potential risk of transplant-related mortality (TRM) in TDT...

OBJECTIVE: To assess the long-term healthcare costs and health outcome in association with the access to new direct-acting antivirals (DAAs), during the first year of the National Strategic Plan for Chronic Hepatitis C (SPCHC) in patients with chronic hepatitis C (CHC) in Spain. METHODS: A decision tree and a lifetime Markov model were developed to simulate the natural history, morbidity, and mortality of a cohort of 51,900 patients with CHC before (pre-DAA strategy) and after (post-DAA strategy) access to DAA, following SPCHC approval...

BACKGROUND: Health-related quality of life (HRQOL) is an important outcome in solid organ transplantation. This study evaluated and explored the factors of generic and transplant-specific HRQOL in Japanese pediatric and adolescent patients with biliary atresia (BA) after living donor liver transplant (LDLT). METHODS: A cross-sectional survey using anonymous questionnaires was completed between April and July 2015. Patients' medical records were accessed. The Japanese version of Pediatric Quality of Life Inventory(™) Generic Core Scales and Transplant Modules (child self-report and parent proxy-report) was administered...

BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES: Young adults receiving RRT face additional challenges in life. The effect of established kidney failure on young adulthood is uncertain. We aimed to establish the psychosocial and lifestyle status of young adults receiving RRT. DESIGN, SETTING, PARTICIPANTS, & MEASUREMENTS: Our study was a systematic review and meta-analysis of 16-30-year olds receiving RRT compared with the general population. We selected randomized, controlled trials; cohort studies; or cross-sectional studies without language restriction and extracted proportions of sociodemographic and lifestyle outcomes or validated psychologic health tests producing quality of life, wellbeing, and self-esteem scores...

BACKGROUND: Before and after hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (HSCT), most patients suffer from psychophysical limitations due to the treatment. Exercise interventions demonstrate beneficial effects on, for example, strength, endurance, or health-related quality of life during and after HSCT, but with a great variation among patients concerning the response to exercise. This study examines the influence of the initial fitness on the effects of an exercise therapy in pediatric HSCT...

Sarcopenia and physical deconditioning are frequent complications in patients with cirrhosis and end-stage liver disease (ESLD). They are the end result of impaired dietary intake, chronic inflammation, altered macro- and micronutrient metabolism, and low physical activity. Frailty is the end result of prolonged sarcopenia and physical deconditioning. It severely affects a patient's functional status, and presents in about 1 in 5 patients on the liver transplant (LT) waitlist. Sarcopenia, poor physical fitness/cardiopulmonary endurance, and frailty are all associated with increased mortality in ESLD...

BACKGROUND: Indigenous Australians suffer a disproportionate burden of end stage kidney disease (ESKD) but are significantly less likely to receive a transplant. This study explores Indigenous ESKD patients' views on transplantation as a treatment option. METHODS: The Improving Access to Kidney Transplants (IMPAKT) research program investigated barriers to kidney transplantation for Indigenous Australians. An interview study, conducted in 2005-2006, elicited illness experience narratives from 146 Indigenous patients, including views on transplant...
