JHLT: The Podcast Episode 22: October 2022
For this month’s episode, JHLT The Podcast explores two impactful studies from the October issue of The Journal of Heart and Lung Transplantation. The episode is hosted by Daniel R. Goldstein, MD, Editor-in-Chief of JHLT, who is joined by the JHLT Digital Media Editors. Listen now to hear study authors discuss their work, their studies, and next steps for their research.
First, the editors speak with first author Michael Harhay, PhD (pictured left) and senior author Edward Cantu, MD (pictured right), about their study from the University of Pennsylvania entitled “Epidemiology, risk factors and outcomes of lung retransplantation: an analysis of the ISHLT Transplant Registry.” Dr. Goldstein and Erika Lease, MD, interview Drs. Harhay and Cantu about the study.
The objective of the study was to leverage the ISHLT Thoracic Transplant registry using an updated cohort of patients that underwent lung retransplantation to obtain an updated summary of the epidemiology of lung retransplantation; to examine the importance of the time between primary transplantation and retransplantation on outcomes after retransplantation; and to identify risk factors of mortality following lung retransplantation.
