Published in The Journal of Heart and Lung Transplantation, the updated guidelines are a result of a collaboration between the International Society for Heart and Lung Transplantation (ISHLT) Heart Failure and Transplantation, Pediatric and Infectious Disease Councils.

Chaired by Dr. Mandeep R. Mehra, professor of medicine at Harvard Medical School, and medical director of the Heart and Vascular Center at Brigham and Women's Hospital - both in Boston, MA - the revised guidelines for heart transplantation candidacy address some of the issues that have arisen since such guidelines were first put in place in 2006.

One key issue has been heart transplantation eligibility for patients with certain medical conditions; the 2006 guidelines stated that patients with particular illnesses should not be considered for the procedure.

    Well-written piece. I just sent this on 6/4/2019 to a fellow student who has been doing a little research of her own on the topic. To say thank you, she just bought me a drink! So, let me express my gratitude by saying: Cheers for the meal!

    I'm pleased with the way that covers this kind of issue. Usually on point, often controversial, consistently well-researched and more often than not quite thought-provoking.
