Incidence of and Risk Assessment for Adverse Cardiovascular Outcomes After Liver Transplantation( )

1 edition published in 2017 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Abstract : Background: Cardiovascular events represent a major source of morbidity and mortality after liver transplantation and will likely increase given the aging population and nonalcoholic fatty liver disease as a leading indication for transplant. The optimal cardiovascular risk stratification approach in this evolving patient population remains unclear. The aims of this systematic review are to: (1) refine the definition, (2) characterize the incidence, and (3) identify risk factors for cardiovascular events post-liver transplantation. Additionally, we evaluated performance characteristics of different cardiac testing modalities. Methods: MEDLINE via PubMed, EMBASE, Web of Science, and Scopus were searched for studies published between 2002 and 2016 (model of end-stage liver disease era). Two authors independently reviewed articles to select eligible studies and performed data abstraction. Results: Twenty-nine studies representing 57 493 patients from 26 unique cohorts were included. Definitions of cardiovascular outcomes were highly inconsistent. Incidence rates were widely variable: 1% to 41% for outcomes of 6 months or shorter and 0% to 31% for outcomes longer than 6 months. Multivariate analyses demonstrated that older age and history of cardiac disease were the most consistent predictors of cardiovascular events posttransplant (significant in 8/23 and 7/22, studies, respectively). Predictive capacity of various cardiac imaging modalities was also discrepant. Conclusions: The true incidence of cardiovascular outcomes post-liver transplant remains unknown in large part due to lack of consensus regarding outcome definition. Overall, poor data quality and gaps in knowledge limit the ability to clearly identify predictors of outcomes, but existing data support a more aggressive risk stratification protocol for patients of advanced age and/or with preexisting cardiac disease. Abstract : Through a systematic review approach, the authors refine the definition of cardiovascular events post-liver transplantation, characterize their incidence, identify risk factors and evaluate performance characteristics of different cardiac testing modalitiest.

Quality of Life in Liver Transplant Candidates( )

1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Abstract : Background: In an effort to understand the diminished quality of life (QoL) exhibited by patients with end-stage liver disease (ESLD), we studied the association of frailty and severity of liver disease with quality of life in this patient population. Methods: In a prospective, single-center cohort study (N = 487), we assessed frailty and QoL in patients with ESLD referred for liver transplant. Frailty was measured on a scale from 0 to 5 by grip strength, gait speed, exhaustion, shrinkage, and physical activity, with scores of 3 or higher characterized as frail. Physical, mental, and combined overall quality of life scores ranging from 0 to 100 were assessed using Short Form 36. Pearson correlation and multiple linear regression were used to identify variables associated with QoL. Results: Quality of life was notably low in the study cohort (mean: physical, 42.9 ± 24.1; mental, 58.3 ± 23.2). In multivariate analysis adjusted for demographic and clinical characteristics, frailty was significantly negative associated with physical (slope, −22.55, 95% confidence interval, −26.39 to −18.71; P < 0.001) and mental QoL (slope, −17.59, 95% confidence interval, −21.47 to −13.71; P < 0.001). Model for ESLD (MELD) was not associated with QoL. Conclusion: In ESLD patient referred for liver transplant, diminished QoL appears to be significantly negatively associated with frailty and not with severity of liver disease as measured MELD. With further study, if frailty is shown to be a remediable condition, targeted programs may help decrease frailty and improve quality of life in ESLD patients. Abstract : Frailty, when measured formally and not as seen from the end of the bed, predicts meaningful outcomes of liver transplantation better than measures of liver disease.
