Principles governing the prosthodontic treatment of patients with cardiac transplants

The Journal of the American Dental Association
J J CarpendaleC J Goodacre


As the survival rate of patients with cardiac transplants improves, it is more likely that dentists will have to provide extensive dental care and it is important to know the special precautions that must be taken when treating these patients. In this report on the prosthodontic treatment of a patient with a cardiac transplant and an unstable medical history, specific dental management guidelines are proposed. The treatment illustrates an alternative to complex and prolonged restorative treatment for patients with compromised post-transplant recovery.

Coronaviruses encompass a large family of viruses that cause the common cold as well as more serious diseases, such as the ongoing outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19; formally known as 2019-nCoV). Coronaviruses can spread from animals to humans; symptoms include fever, cough, shortness of breath, and breathing difficulties; in more severe cases, infection can lead to death. This feed covers recent research on COVID-19.
