Transplant candidates with high level of HLA antibody sensitization present a significant challenge to clinicians with the aim to optimize effective desensitization while minimizing adverse effects. This webinar focuses on unique aspects of desensitization for both pediatric heart and lung transplant candidates, including incorporating new medications regimens, understanding possible adverse effects, and future directions in desensitization.
