REVIEW
Mettu Srinivas Reddy, Mohamed Rela
Porto-systemic collaterals are a common finding in patients with cirrhosis undergoing liver transplantation. Recently, there has been renewed interest regarding their significance in the setting of living donor liver transplantation (LDLT) due to concerns of graft hypo or hyper-perfusion and its impact on early post-transplant outcomes. Presence of these collaterals has greater significance in the LDLT setting when compared to deceased donor liver transplant setting as dictated by the difference in the physiology of partial liver grafts...

INTRODUCTION: Despite the growing data supporting the role of microcirculation in regulating liver function, little of this knowledge has been translated into clinical practice. The aim of this study is to quantify hepatic microcirculation in-vivo using sidestream dark-field (SDF) imaging and correlate these finding with hepatic blood flow, hemodynamic parameters, and soluble mediators. METHODS: Post-reperfusion hepatic microcirculation was assessed using SDF imaging...

There are three grafts (left, right and right lateral sector [RLS]) available for adult living donor liver transplantation (LDLT), and we herein report LDLT performed using an extended RLS graft. An extended RLS graft is an RLS plus right paramedian dorsal sector (RPMS-dorsal) graft. In this case, the proportion of the RLS graft of the predicted graft volume (GV) to the recipient's standard liver volume (SLV) was only 17.7%, preoperatively. A three-dimensional (3D) analysis, showed that the RPMS-dorsal branches of the portal veins branched from the posterior trunk not the anterior trunk...

INTRODUCTION: Donation after circulatory death (DCD) liver allografts are increasingly used for transplantation. However, the post-transplantation clinical and quality of life outcomes of DCD recipients are traditionally considered to be inferior compared with donation after brain death (DBD) allograft recipients. Decision making for such marginal organs can be difficult. This study investigated the optimal decision to accept or decline a DCD liver allograft for a patient based on their current health...

BACKGROUND: Implications of prescription opioid use for outcomes after liver transplant have not been described. METHODS: We integrated national transplant registry data with records from a large pharmaceutical claims clearinghouse (2008-2014; n=26,925). Opioid fills on the waiting list were normalized to morphine equivalents (ME), and exposure was categorized as: >0 to 2 ME/day (level 1), >2 to 10 ME/day (level 2), >10 to 70 ME/day (level 3), and >70 ME/day (level 4)...

The aim was to determine the factors associated with the use of delayed abdominal closure in pediatric liver transplant and whether this affected outcome. From a prospectively maintained database, transplants performed in children (≤ 18 years) were identified (October 2010 - March 2015). Primary abdominal closure was defined as mass closure performed at time of transplant. Delayed abdominal closure was defined as mass closure not initially performed at the same time as transplant. 230 children underwent liver transplantation...

BACKGROUND: The use of liver grafts from donation after cardiac death donors (DCD LT) has been limited due to the increased rate of graft failure, mostly related to ischemic cholangiopathy(IC). It is our hypothesis that long term outcomes and quality of life similar to patients undergoing liver transplantation with donation after brain death donors (DBD LT) can be achieved. METHODS: Clinical outcomes of all patients undergoing DCD LT (n = 300) between 1998-2015 were compared to a propensity score matched cohort of patients undergoing DBD LT (n = 300)...

Combined hepatocellular carcinoma and cholangiocarcinoma (cHCC-CC) is a rare disease. We investigated the clinicopathological features of cHCC-CC and compared the long-term outcomes following liver transplantation (LT) and hepatic resection (HR). We identified 32 LT patients with cHCC-CC through an institutional database search. HR control group (n=100) was selected through propensity score-matching. The incidence of cHCC-CC among all adult LT cases was 1.0%. Mean patient age was 53.4±6.7 years and 26 patients were male...
