Overview of clinical lung transplantation.
Since the first successful lung transplant 30 years ago, lung transplantation has rapidly become an established standard of care to treat end-stage lung disease in selected patients. Advances in lung preservation, surgical technique, and immunosuppre

Clinical pearls in pediatric neurology.
The authors present three neurological cases (common and uncommon), that have important management implications. The specific diagnosis can be suspected clinically if the clinician is aware of the entities. Besides clinical clues, the recognition of

Genetics: Clinical exome sequencing in neurology practice.
Clinical exome sequencing (CES) is becoming a standard tool for molecular diagnosis of genetic disorders, with a diagnostic yield of approximately 25%. New studies demonstrate the favourable diagnostic yield of CES for both early-onset and adult-onse

Ex vivo lung perfusion in clinical lung transplantation--state of the art.
Ex vivo lung perfusion (EVLP) has emerged as a new technique for assessing and potentially reconditioning human donor lungs previously unacceptable for clinical transplantation with the potential to dramatically push the limits of organ acceptability

Immunosuppression in lung transplantation.
Lung transplantation can be a life-saving procedure for those with end-stage lung diseases. Unfortunately, long term graft and patient survival are limited by both acute and chronic allograft rejection, with a median survival of just over 6 years. Im

Lung transplantation.
Lung transplantation is a globally accepted treatment for some advanced lung diseases, giving the recipients longer survival and better quality of life. Since the first transplant successfully performed in 1983, more than 40 thousand transplants have
