Scientific Program

Session Summary:
The ongoing COVID-19 pandemic has had significant global impact on cardiothoracic transplantation. The ISHLT COVID-19 webinar will discuss various aspects of the pandemic on heart and lung transplantation using a case-based approach. Topics include infectivity of SAR-CoV-2, management of wait listed patients infected with or exposed to SARS-CoV-2, summary of recent COVID-19 therapeutic trials and implications for transplant recipients, and lung transplant evaluation and listing criteria for COVID-19 related respiratory failure. Faculty will be available for a live Q&A session.
