In this issue of The Journal of Heart and Lung Transplantation, Bansal et al discuss social determinants of health (SDoH) and their impact on waitlist mortality in pediatric heart transplantation
1. The authors divided pediatric patients on the pre-transplant waitlist into several groups based on race (Black, White, other), insurance type (Private US, Government US, and non-US single payer), and by clinical conditions including cardiac diagnosis, age, and disease severity at the time of listing (inotropic need, ventricular assist device placement, etc.) to determine which factors contributed to waitlist mortality. The authors further divided the cohort by era (2000-2009 versus 2010-2019) and noted differences between the two.
