BACKGROUND The incidence of systemic amyloidosis is rising, and there is a concomitant rise in heart transplant for an indication of cardiac amyloidosis. METHODS We utilized the Organ Procurement and Transplantation Network (OPTN) database to retrospectively assess survival and outcomes in adult patients undergoing heart transplant for cardiac amyloidosis from 1999 to 2019. We also compared survival among four distinct time periods: 1999-2001, 2002-2008, 2008-2015, 2016-2019. RESULTS Of 41,103 p...

Abstract Background Previous single-center studies of diaphragmatic paralysis (DP) after pediatric cardiac surgery report incidence of 0.3%-12.8% and associate DP with respiratory complications, prolonged ventilation and length of stay, and mortality. To better define incidence and associations between DP and various procedures and outcomes, we performed a multi-center study. Methods The STS-CHSD was queried to identify children who experienced DP after cardiac surgery (2010–2018; 126 centers). ...

Extracorporeal membrane oxygenation is a potentially life-saving intervention in refractory cardiopulmonary failure, but it requires anticoagulation to prevent circuit thromboses, which exposes the patient to hemorrhagic complications. Heparin has traditionally been the anticoagulant of choice, but the direct thrombin inhibitor bivalirudin is routinely used in cases of heparin-induced thrombocytopenia and has been suggested as a superior choice. We sought to examine the timing of hemorrhagic and...

Abstract Introduction Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality Patient Safety Indicators (AHRQ-PSI) are quality improvement indicators used to determine hospital performance and, increasingly, to rank surgical programs. The American College of Surgeons National Surgical Quality Improvement Program (ACS-NSQIP) and the Society for Vascular Surgery Vascular Quality Improvement (SVS-VQI) databases are also frequently utilized to compare outcomes, but definitions of complications vary between the s...

BACKGROUND Cardiac sarcoidosis is an increasingly common indication for a heart transplant, but there is a paucity of knowledge with regard to long-term outcomes following transplant. METHODS We utilized the Organ Procurement and Transplantation Network database to retrospectively analyze adult patients undergoing first-time, single-organ heart transplant between January 1999 and March 2020. RESULTS Of the 41,447 patients that underwent heart transplant during the study period, 289 (0.7%) were t...

Abstract Background Utilization of multiple arterial grafts (MAG) provides superior patency and long-term survival benefit compared to venous grafts during coronary artery bypass graft surgery (CABG). However, MAG are infrequently utilized for CABG. We hypothesized specific measures introduced at our institution would lead to an increase in the use of MAG. Study Design Utilization of MAG before and after introduction of bundled measures were compared. Measures included increased education in art...
