Chronic Lung Allograft Dysfunction (CLAD) after lung transplantationThis webinar provides an up-to-date overview of Chronic Lung Allograft Dysfunction (CLAD), the most common post-transplant problem in lung transplant patients. This webinar elaborates on the recently updated definition and diagnosis of CLAD and how this will assist in accelerating progress in achieving uniform management between centres and facilitate clinical trials; other topics covered are histopathology, risk factors and therapeutic interventions of CLAD.
Update on exvivo organ perfusionThe aim of this webinar is to learn about the current status of the different platforms available for ex-vivo perfusion of intrathoracic organs, their indications and future perspectives. In the first part of the webinar focused on lung perfusion, specific therapies to eliminate HCV transmission, different strategies to optimise lung quality and biomarkers to predict lung function after exvivo will be presented.The second part provides an update on cardiac exvivo perfusion systems.
