SESSION TITLE: Outcomes in Lung Transplantation Slide

SESSION TYPE: Original Investigation Slide

PRESENTED ON: Monday, October 24, 2016 at 01:30 PM - 02:30 PM

PURPOSE: The pool of lung transplant donors remains small despite development of extended donor criterion for lung transplantation. Bacteremia poses a major concern as organisms can be transmitted to immunocompromised allograft recipients leading to risk of septic shock and death. Other solid organ transplants have safely transplanted allografts despite bacteremic donors (BD). With several case series hinting this may be true in lung transplantation, we analyzed national registry data to evaluate any association between BD and lung transplant recipient outcomes.
