Recipient Selection Criteria for Facial Transplantation

Abstract: BackgroundRecipient selection is an important determinant of surgical outcomes in facial transplantation (FT). Appropriately, each FT program develops their own guidelines for recipient selection criteria. Currently, there is no resource to simultaneously assess and identify similarities and differences between these guidelines. Such information could be useful in distinguishing areas of FT that are well understood from those that could benefit from further exploration.MethodsWe performed a systematic review o… Show more

“…However, the recent development of direct-acting antivirals offers a cure for patients with chronic HCV: this development has led to updates in the policies of some SOT centers that have successfully conducted SOT in HCV patients 132,133 . While one FT center has updated its policy to remove HCV as an exclusion criterion, this study did not identify similar changes among any HT centers 14 . Hence, these new data may encourage the field of HT to continually reevaluate medical eligibility criteria, especially in an attempt to improve access to otherwise ineligible patients.…”

“…132,133 While one FT center has updated its policy to remove HCV as an exclusion criterion, this study did not identify similar changes among any HT centers. 14 Hence, these new data may encourage the field of HT to continually reevaluate medical eligibility criteria, especially in an attempt to improve access to otherwise ineligible patients. Programs did not agree regarding anatomic requirements for HT, and our findings showed that most centers offered unilateral HT only to address dominant hand injuries.…”

“…The primary indication for face transplantation (FT) is restoration of the functional structures of the central face, which remain poorly reparable through traditional autologous methods. 1 Over the nearly 20-year history, of FT, surgeons have successfully transplanted a variety of structures, including the nose and nasal mucosa, lips and dentition, ears, neck, scalp, pharynx, and larynx. 2 FT has also proven valuable for the restoration of the eyelids, the function of which is integral to the maintenance of a healthy globe and limiting vision-related complications.…”
