Practices of cardiothoracic transplant centers regarding hepatitis C-seropositive candidates and donors.
American Society of Transplant Physicians. Annual meeting. Houston TX (USA), 1993/05.
The purpose of this survey was to determine current practices of cardiothoracic transplant centers regardin8 transplantation of hearts and lungs into hepatitis C (HCV)-seropositive candidates and the use of organs from HCV-seropositive donors.
A telephone survey of 48 cardiothoracic transplant centers was conducted in October 1992.
Questions included the center's policy for listing HCV-seropositive candidates; if, and under what conditions, organs from HCV-seropositive donors would be used; and which HCV assays were used.
Forty-five programs responded; 75% will list an HCV-seropositive candidate, either directly or by lack of routine screening to exclude such patients; only 16% will not accept HCV-seropositive candidates; 9% had no policy.
