INTRODUCTION: There is currently no available tool to predict extreme Large-for-size (LFS), a potentially disastrous complication after adult liver transplantation (LT). We aimed to identify the risk factors for extreme LFS and to build a simple predictive model. METHODS: A cohort of consecutive patients who underwent LT with full graft in a single institution was studied. The extreme LFS was defined by the impossibility to achieve direct fascial closure, even after delayed management, associated with early allograft dysfunction or non-function...

BACKGROUND: This study aimed to elucidate the impact of epithelial regenerative responses and immune cell infiltration on biliary complications after liver transplantation. METHODS: Bile duct damage after cold storage was quantified by a BD damage score and correlated with patient outcome in 41 cases. Bacterial infiltration was determined by fluorescence in situ hybridization. Bile duct samples were analyzed by immunohistochemistry for E-cadherin, cytokeratin, CD56, CD14, CD4, CD8 and double-immunofluorescence for cytokine production and by mRNA microarray...

Knowledge of the long term trajectory of nonadherence to immunosupressants can inform decisions regarding organ allocation, adherence monitoring, and intervention efforts. The MALT (Medication Adherence in children who had a Liver Transplant) prospective multi-site study followed 400 pediatric and adolescent liver transplant recipients for 2 years, using the Medication Level Variability Index (MLVI) to monitor adherence. We hypothesized that adherence is an unstable (fluctuating) phenomenon: that patients who are adherent in year one may become nonadherent in year 2, and vice-versa...

Dendritic cells (DCs) play a key role in innate immune responses, and are also the most effective cells for the activation of T cell immunity. They acquire antigen and process it, then display in on the cell surface bound in a non-covalent complex with HLA molecules of class I (HLA-A, B, C) and class II (HLA-DR). These cells are subdivided into three main subsets, two called myeloid or classical DCs of types 1 and 2, and one called plasmacytoid. The myeloid DCs process and present antigen, while the plasmacytoid DCs also strongly respond to viral signals by secreting Type 1 Interferon...

Orthotopic liver transplantation (OLT) represents a curative treatment option for end-stage liver disease (ESLD). While epidemiology of ESLD has recently changed due the rising prevalence of non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) and decreased burden of hepatitis C virus (HCV) infections due to highly-effective antiviral regimens, the management of portal hypertension (PHT) remains a clinical challenge in the pre- and post-OLT setting. The measurement of hepatic venous pressure gradient (HVPG) represents the most reliable, but invasive tool for assessment of the severity of PHT...

Non-alcoholic fatty liver disease is becoming the leading cause of disease resulting in liver transplantation (LT). As a result of this trend, more liver transplant candidates are presenting with prior history of bariatric surgery (BS). Over the last decade, 960 patients underwent LT at our institution; 11 (1.1%) had prior BS. Most common type of BS was Roux-en-Y gastric bypass (n=9) with 1 sleeve gastrectomy and 1 jejunoileal bypass. Nine patients underwent LT alone and 2 underwent simultaneous liver-kidney transplantation...

BACKGROUND: Although currently, moderate and high intensity concurrent physical exercise is prescribed in populations with special needs due to its greater effect on physical condition and health-related quality of life (HRQOL), there are no data in the liver transplantation (LT) setting. AIM: To evaluate changes in maximal strength, aerobic capacity, body composition, liver function, and HRQOL in LT patients after a moderate to high intensity combined resistance-endurance training...

Liver transplantation is commonly used to treat patients with end-stage liver disease. The evolution of surgical techniques, endovascular methods, and medical care has led to a progressive decrease in post-transplant morbidity and mortality. Despite these improvements, a multi-disciplinary approach to each patient remains essential as the early diagnosis and treatment of the complications of transplantation influence graft and patient survival. The critical role of interventional radiology in the collaborative approach to the care of the liver transplant patient will be reviewed...

Insufficient is the evidence for safe use of elderly donors in adult-to-adult living donor liver transplantation (LDLT). The aim of this study was to evaluate the outcomes of right lobe LDLT by donor age (≥55 vs. <55 years). All living donors who underwent right hepatectomy at the authors' institution between March 2008 and December 2015 were divided into 2 groups: group A with an age ≥ 55 and group B with an age < 55. The selection criteria for elderly donor were preservation of middle hepatic vein, remnant liver volume ≥30%, and no or mild fatty liver...

REVIEW

BACKGROUND: The efficacy of cold in situ perfusion and static storage of the liver is one possible determinant of transplantation outcomes. The aim of this study was to determine whether there is evidence to substantiate a preference for a particular perfusion route (aortic or dual) or perfusion/preservation solution in donation after brain-death (DBD) liver transplantation. METHODS: The Embase, Medline and Cochrane databases were utilized (1980-2017). Random effects modeling was used to estimate effects on transplantation outcomes based upon (i) aortic or dual in situ perfusion, and (ii) the use of University of Wisconsin (UW), histidine-tryptophan-ketoglutarate (HTK), Celsior and/or Institut Georges Lopez-1 (IGL-1) for perfusion/preservation...
