The «Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome coronavirus 2» (SARS-CoV-2) pandemic has disrupted medical care and intra-hospital organization during 2020, both in Belgium and throughout the world. Solid organ transplantation was not spared and in Belgium, the number of organ donors and transplants overall decreased by 20 % for livers and by 33 % for hearts between 2019 and 2020. The aim of this article is to summarize the experience acquired in 2020 and 2021 on the organizational and medical implications of the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic with regard to the care of patients transplanted or awaiting for organ transplants, and to draw conclusions both for the aftermath of COVID-19 but also for future pandemics. Vaccination against SARS-CoV-2 is highly recommended and particularly important in organ transplant recipients, even if the response rate is lower than in the non-transplanted population. A third injection is now advised in immunosuppressed patients. [less ▲]

Background: There are limited data on Coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) in solid organ transplant patients, especially in heart transplant recipients, with only a few case reports and case series described so far. Heart transplant recipients may be at particular high risk due to their comorbidities and immunosuppressed state. Case presentation: This report describes the clinical course and the challenging management of early COVID-19infection in two heart transplant recipients who tested positive for the SARS-CoV-2 virus in the perioperative period of the transplant procedure. The two patients developed a severe form of the disease and ultimately died despite the initiation of an antiviral monotherapy with hydroxychloroquine coupled with the interruption of mycophenolate mofetil. Conclusions: These two cases illustrate the severity and poor prognosis of COVID-19 in the perioperative period of a heart transplant. Thorough screening of donors and recipients is mandatory, and the issue of asymptomatic carriers needs to be addressed. [less ▲]

Cardiac intimal sarcoma is extremely rare and aggressive primary malignant cardiac tumors. Here, we reported the case of a young man initially operated for a tumor of the left atrium, causing a dynamic obstruction of the mitral valve and (mis-)diagnosed as a myxoma at the histopathological analysis. Patient presented a local recurrence at 3 months and was reoperated. Pathology revealed this time the presence of an intimal sarcoma. Patient received adjuvant chemotherapy. Despite a good local control, the 1-year follow-up positron emission tomography scan revealed the presence of a metastasis in the left adrenal gland that was surgically resected. This article aims to highlight the risk of misdiagnosis in case of cardiac tumors, the hypothetical concept of malignant transformation of a cardiac myxoma, the aggressive course of the extremely rare cardiac intimal sarcoma, and the therapeutic modalities available to treat this pathology.

Heart transplantation remains undoubtedly the most effective treatment for end-stage heart failure, whatever its cause. Last decade has witnessed significant improvements in terms of morbidity and mortality following heart transplant. The 5-year survival rate is now beyond 70 %. However, the shortage of potential donors limits its use and requires strict criteria before listing a candidate for heart transplantation. Herein, we present a review of current indications and results of the heart transplantation program at the University hospital of Liege. [less ▲]

Heart transplantation (HT) from donation after circulatory death (DCD) is a promising alternative to expand the heart donor pool. Cold storage can be used in a strategy to successfully retrieve and transplant DCD hearts after reconditioning using normothermic regional perfusion for distant procurement. Herein, we present the first report of a pediatric DCD heart reconditioned with normothermic regional perfusion, preserved using only cold storage while being transported to a neighboring center, and then successfully transplanted after nearly 2 hours of cold static storage. If supported by an appropriate trial, this finding could obviate the need to use expensive perfusion devices for short interhospital distances for DCD heart transportation and stimulate more centers across the world to embrace DCD HT.

BACKGROUND: Heart transplantation (HT) from donation after circulatory death (DCD) has yet to achieve wide clinical application despite the encouraging resultsreported recently. In this study we describe 2 cases of successful adult DCD HT performed at our institution using an original protocol. METHODS: Our local abdominal DCD protocol was updated to allow DCD heart procurement, and was accepted by the institutional ethics committee. The main features of the protocol include: pre-mortem insertion of peripheral venoarterial extracorporeal membrane oxygenation cannulas; thoracoabdominal normothermic regional perfusion (NRP) by clamping the 3 aortic arch vessels to exclude cerebral circu- lation; and in-situ heart resuscitation. The retrieved hearts were directly transplanted into recipients located in an adjoining operating room. RESULTS: The procurement warm ischemic time was 25 minutes for the first donor, and 26 minutes for the second donor. The cold ischemic time was 16 minutes for the first recipient and 17 minutes for the second recipient. The suture time was 30 minutes for the first recipient, and 53 minutes for the second recipient. Both recipients were easily weaned off cardiopulmonary bypass in sinus rhythm and inotro- pic support. Post-operative evaluation of cardiac function was excellent and the patients were subse- quently discharged home. CONCLUSIONS: Transplantation of hearts from DCD donors is now a clinical reality.NRP is a useful tool for resuscitation, reperfusion, and preservation of transplanted hearts. It also offers the opportunity to assess the function and viability of organs before transplantation. However,due to ethical issues, some may object to ante-mortem intervention. [less ▲]

Heart transplantation after circulatory death is a clinical reality. It can help expand the organ shortage. The implementation of a DCD heart transplantation program requires a dedicated multidisciplinary team, and the use of strict selection criteria for donor and recipients. In addition, the adoption of a simple protocol is also advised. However, several ethical issues need to be addressed to permit a wider adoption of DCD heart transplantation worldwide. [less ▲]

The organ donor shortage is particularly severe for heart grafts. Donor history of malignancy is a contra-indication for organ donation, but as the heart is an organ at lower risk of metastasis compared to the liver or the lungs, the authors aimed to better determine this risk with heart transplantation (HTx) through an extensive review of the literature. Results: 7 cases (melanoma, glioblastoma (2), renal carcinoma, choriocarcinoma, hypernephroma, prostate) of transmission of cancer with HTx were reported. All recipients died from transmitted cancer. Interestingly, in 9 other cases, HTx did not induce cancer transmission at long term, despite the evidence of active cancer in the donor proven by autopsy or by cancer transmission in recipients of other organs from the same donor. Reports of UNOS described 274 heart donors with history of various cancers, without transmission to the recipients. In another report, UNOS reported 212 HTx from donor with brain cancer without cancer transmission to the recipients. Conclusion: HTx is not protected from the risk of donor cancer transmission, but very few cases were reported so far. This fact might indicate that donors with past history of cancer might be considered for heart donation in selected cases, considering the actual organ donor shortage. [less ▲]
