Pathology Reporting

ISHLT diagnostic terminology from the 2013 ISHLT WF is recommended. Additional comments, preferably in a "searchable" field in the electronic report so data can be retrieved, on C3d and CD68 staining if performed, and on the intensity and extent of C4d staining, can also help eventual understanding of the clinical import of the various pathologic features of AMR. A representative template for reporting is available here.

Communicating Results

Reporting by telephone or fax or secure email/texting of positive (and negative) results should speed clinical decision-making and treatment.
