Join Daniel R. Goldstein, MD, Editor-in-Chief of JHLT, and the JHLT Digital Media Editors for two interviews with authors from the February issue of The Journal of Heart and Lung Transplantation.
First, the editors speak with Georg Hansmann, MD, PhD, Associate Professor of Pediatrics at Hannover Medical School. Dr. Hansmann is the lead author on a paper entitled “Full recovery of right ventricular systolic function in children undergoing bilateral lung transplantation for severe PAH.” Beginning at 1:37, Erika Lease, MD, interviews Dr. Hansmann about the findings of the study, follow up recommendations, and potential practice changes in clinical settings.
Starting at 14:27, Marty Tam, MD, is in conversation with Jan Griffin, MD, Assistant Professor of Medicine at Columbia University Irving Medical Center, about her study from the February issue: “Surveillance for disease progression of transthyretin amyloidosis (ATTR) post heart transplantation in the era of novel disease modifying therapies.” Dr. Griffin discusses her team’s work on transplanting patients with TTR cardiac amyloidosis, a structured surveillance program, and disease modifying agents post-transplant.
