Hofer, M; Schmid, C; Benden, C; Speich, R; Inci, I; Weder, W; Boehler, A (2012). Diabetes mellitus and survival in cystic fibrosis patients after lung transplantation. Journal of Cystic Fibrosis, 11(2):131-136.

Abstract

BACKGROUND: Diabetes mellitus (DM) is common in CF and associated with more severe disease. It is unclear whether DM influences outcome of lung transplantation (LTx). METHODS: One hundred twenty-three CF patients evaluated for LTx at our centre were included. Survival was calculated. RESULTS: Patients with and without DM did not differ with regard to gender, age, FEV(1) and BMI prior to LTx. Eighty patients (65%) had a diagnosis of DM before and 13 (11%) only after LTx. Recipients with DM had a significantly higher 1- and 5-year survival (89% and 71%) than those without (71% and 51%). In the multivariate Cox-regression analysis, DM had no impact on LTx-survival. CONCLUSIONS: One- and five-year survival rates after LTx tend to be better in CF recipients with DM compared to those without DM. No impact of DM on the development of BOS was found.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
