BACKGROUND: When assessing the cost of transplants in Japan, earlier studies have been limited to case series that investigated inpatient cost alone. Few studies have evaluated total cost, which includes inpatient, outpatient, and pharmaceutical costs, or compared costs before and after transplantation. Using the National Database of Health Insurance Claims and Specific Health Checkups of Japan (NDB), we investigated the total cost of major transplantation and contributing factors. METHODS: We analyzed the cost and complications of patients who underwent a cadaveric renal transplantation (CRT), living renal transplantation (LRT), living-donor liver transplantation (LDLT), allogeneic bone marrow transplantation, autologous bone marrow transplantation, allogeneic peripheral blood stem cell transplantation, or autologous peripheral blood stem cell transplantation (auto-PBSCT) from April 2009 to March 2010...

BACKGROUND: Isolated renal allograft aspergillosis is rare and usually presents with fever and decreased glomerular filtration rate. Presentation with obstructive uropathy caused by aspergillus fungal balls is much less common. We report a young male patient who presented with obstructive uropathy secondary to isolated renal allograft aspergillus infection 6 weeks after transplant. He was treated with nephrectomy and antifungal medications. CASE PRESENTATION: A 29-year-old Saudi male patient had a recent living non-related kidney transplantation in Pakistan...

Atypical hemolytic uremic syndrome (aHUS) develops as the result of unregulated complement progression and precipitates de novo thrombotic microangiopathy. Plasma therapy is used to control the progression of the complement cascade, but that therapy is not effective in all patients and is accompanied by risk of infection and/or allergy. Eculizumab has been reported as an efficient therapy for aHUS. We report the case of a 35-year old woman who underwent effective eculizumab therapy for aHUS recurrence and antibody-mediated rejection (AMR) progress after renal transplantation with preformed donor-specific antibodies (DSA)...

BACKGROUND: Patients with intestinal failure (IF) are candidates for intestinal transplantation (ITx). In Japan, these patients have few opportunities to undergo cadaveric ITx because of low rates of organ donation. The donor criteria and recipient priority for ITx are still unknown. We reviewed our cases of IF to investigate which patients should be prioritized for ITx. METHODS: Patients with IF who were registered as candidates for cadaveric ITx between January 2010 and November 2015 in our institute were included in this retrospective study...

Late decapsulation with fluid collection is a rare complication of renal transplantation with deleterious effects on kidney function. Its physiopathology is unclear but there might be an association with mammalian target of rapamycin (m-TOR) inhibitors, especially in patients with chronic hepatitis C. We report a case of late spontaneous decapsulation 12 years after kidney transplant in a patient infected with hepatitis C under treatment with sirolimus. He underwent marsupialisation of the collection, sirolimus was converted to cyclosporine and hepatitis C treatment was performed with success...

Objective: To study the expression of membrane HLA-G (mHLA-G) and the receptor immunoglobulin-like transcript 2(ILT2) on lymphocyte and find their association with rejection and cytomegalovirus (CMV) infection after renal transplantation. Methods: A total of 88 cases of renal transplant recipients for the first time from February 2014 to February 2016 were studied in this work. Recipients can be divided into rejection group (n=12) and stable renal function group (n=41) according to whether rejection occurred...

OBJECTIVE: Urolithiasis of the transplanted kidney has an incidence of 0.2 to 1.7%, it increases the risk of infection in immunosuppressed patients and it can lead to ureteral obstruction that is often associated with deterioration of renal function. Urolithiasis of the transplanted kidney has different characteristics compared to the native kidney, due to the absence of innervation, which does not lead to colic pain. Percutaneous approach is an optimal choice in transplant patients. MATERIAL AND METHODS: Here we report our experience in two cadaveric transplant patients with urolithiasis...

OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the whole experience of liver transplantation (LT) with donors ≥70 years in a single center not applying specific donor/recipient matching criteria. BACKGROUND: LT with very old donors has historically been associated with poorer outcomes. With the increasing average donor age and the advent of Model for End-stage Liver Diseases (MELD) score-based allocation criteria, an optimal donor/recipient matching is often unsuitable. METHODS: Outcomes of all types of LTs were compared according to 4 study groups: patients transplanted between 1998 and 2003 with donors <70 (group 1, n = 396) or ≥70 years (group 2, n = 88); patients transplanted between 2004 and 2010 with donors <70 (group 3, n = 409), or ≥70 years (group 4, n = 190)...

BACKGROUND: Active tuberculosis (TB) is commonly considered a contraindication for liver transplantation (LT). However, in patients with TB who develop acute liver failure (ALF) due to toxicity induced by anti-tubercular treatment (ATT), LT could be the only opportunity. The aim of this study was to evaluate the feasibility of LT in this scenario. METHODS: We described 2 cases and comprehensively reviewed the literature finding 26 cases of LT performed in patients having a concomitant active TB and liver failure secondary to ATT toxicity...

Verruconis gallopava is an uncommon cause of phaeohyphomycosis. We describe an unusual case of disseminated V. gallopava infection in a renal transplant recipient involving the endocardium but without endocarditis, associated with fungaemia and infection in the skin, oral cavity, brain and lung. The isolate was first detected from blood cultures which is rare. Surgical resection of cardiac fungal mass was not possible. The patient died despite resolution of fungaemia and combination antifungal therapy.

Malignancies are one of the three major causes of renal recipient´s death with a functioning graft after cardiovascular diseases and infections. Among the variety of risk factors, including conventional and specific to transplant recipients, the duration of immunosuppressive therapy, the intensity of therapy, and the type of immunosuppressive agent all have an impact on development of post-transplant malignancy. The aim of our retrospective study was to document the incidence, the type of malignancies, the patient/graft survival in the group of kidney transplant recipients in Slovak Republic, and to identify the factors which influenced the outcome...

BACKGROUND: Proliferation signal inhibitors, such as sirolimus, are increasingly used in solid-organ transplantation. However, limited data exist on sirolimus-treated pediatric patients. We aimed to describe sirolimus use in pediatric heart transplant patients and test the hypothesis that sirolimus use is associated with improved outcomes. METHODS: A retrospective review and propensity-matched analysis of the Pediatric Heart Transplant Study database was performed on patients undergoing primary heart transplantation from 2004 to 2013 with at least 1 year of follow-up comparing patients treated vs not treated with sirolimus at 1 year after transplant...

PURPOSE: Solid organ transplants (SOT) continue to increase with recipients living longer than ever before. The lifelong immunosuppression in these patients also may place them at increased risk for postoperative complications. The efficacy of total hip arthroplasty (THA) in this patient population is undisputed but previous studies investigating the complication profiles in these patients often are underpowered to identify rare complications as well as make comparisons between individual organs...

INTRODUCTION: Hepatitis C virus (HCV) infection in kidney transplant (KTX) patients reduces long-term patient and graft survival. Direct-acting antivirals (DAA) are > 90% effective in achieving sustained viral response (SVR); however, DAAs are not routinely available to patients with end-stage renal disease (ESRD). The University of Utah Transplant Program developed a protocol to allow HCV-positive potential KTX recipients to accept HCV-positive donors' kidneys. Three months after successful KTX, they were eligible for DAA therapy...

BACKGROUND: With the development of all oral, interferon-free directly acting antiviral (DAA) medications, treatment of Hepatitis C infection (HCV) in renal transplant recipients is possible, but limited data exists on its safety and efficacy. METHODS: We performed a retrospective cohort analysis of patients transplanted at our center with HCV who have been started on DAAs. Primary endpoints included sustained virologic response (SVR) as defined as negative viral load at 12 weeks post completion of therapy and allograft function...
