Core Tip Since the turn of the 21st century, advances in certain laboratory studies, pharmacologic interventions, and organ care systems have led to the expansion of the donor pool in the field of orthotopic heart transplantation. This includes: (1) Nucleic acid testing and direct acting antivirals for donors with hepatitis C virus; (2) Organ care systems for donors who meet criteria for donation after cardiac death; (3) Anti-viral therapies for donors with coronavirus disease 19; (4) Improved donor management for grafts with left ventricular systolic dysfunction; and (5) Better understanding of immunosuppression and medication interaction in patients with human immunodeficiency virus. We detail how these advances have allowed our center to expand the donor pool thereby increasing transplantation volume without adverse effects on outcomes.
