Primary graft dysfunction.

Rachel N Criner, Emily Clausen, Edward Cantu,

<h4>Purpose of review</h4>Primary graft dysfunction (PGD) is a devastating complication in the acute postoperative lung transplant period, associated with high short-term mortality and chronic rejection. We review its definition, pathophysiology, risk factors, prevention, treatment strategies, and future research directions.<h4>Recent findings</h4>New analyses suggest donation after circulatory death and donation after brain ...

<h4>Rationale</h4>Sarcopenia is associated with disability and death. The optimal definition and clinical relevance of sarcopenia in lung transplantation remain unknown.<h4>Objective</h4>To assess the construct and predictive validity of sarcopenia definitions in lung transplant candidates.<h4>Methods</h4>In a multicenter prospective cohort of 424 lung transplant candidates, we evaluated limited (muscle mass only) and expanded ...

Relationship between diffusion capacity and small airway abnormality in COPDGene.

Rachel N Criner, Charles R Hatt, Craig J Galbán, Ella A Kazerooni, David A Lynch, Meredith C McCormack, Richard Casaburi, Neil R MacIntyre, Barry J Make, Fernando J Martinez, Wassim W Labaki, Jeffrey L Curtis, Mei Lan K Han,

Impaired single breath carbon monoxide diffusing capacity (DLCO) is associated with emphysema. Small airways disease (SAD) may be a precursor lesion to emphysema, but the relationship between SAD and DLCO is undescribed. We hypothesized that in mild COPD, functional SAD (fSAD) defined by computed tomography (CT) and Parametric Response Mapping ... Read more >>

Mortality and Exacerbations by Global Initiative for Chronic Obstructive Lung Disease Groups ABCD: 2011 Versus 2017 in the COPDGene® Cohort.

Rachel N Criner, Wassim W Labaki, Elizabeth A Regan, Jessica M Bon, Xavier Soler, Surya P Bhatt, Susan Murray, John E Hokanson, Edwin K Silverman, James D Crapo, Jeffrey L Curtis, Fernando J Martinez, Barry J Make, MeiLan K Han, Carlos H Martinez, ,

<b>Background:</b> The Global initiative for chronic Obstructive Lung Disease (GOLD) ABCD groupings were recently modified. The GOLD 2011 guidelines defined increased risk as forced expiratory volume in 1 second (FEV<sub>1</sub>) < 50% predicted or ≥ 2 outpatient or ≥ 1 hospitalized exacerbation in the prior year, whereas the GOLD 2017 ...

Effect of Lung Volume Reduction Surgery on Respiratory Muscle Strength in Advanced Emphysema.

Rachel N Criner, Daohai Yu, Michael R Jacobs, Gerard J Criner,

<b>Background:</b> Long-term effects of lung volume reduction surgery (LVRS) on respiratory muscle strength and effects of age, sex, and emphysema pattern on these changes are unknown. Therefore, we aimed to determine the long-term effect of LVRS on respiratory muscle strength changes in severe emphysema. <b>Methods:</b> The National Emphysema Treatment Trial ... Read more >>
