Pediheart Podcast #171: Associations Of Tracheostomy And Outcomes Of Pediatric Heart Transplantation

This week we delve into the heart failure and transplantation realm when we review a recent large scale PHIS database study assessing the associations of tracheostomy and outcomes of pediatric heart transplantation. Are tracheostomies associated with worse outcomes or mediastinitis? Who is a good candidate for this therapy? How difficult is it to discuss this option with families and why?
