Pancreas transplantation is the only therapy that can restore insulin independence in beta-cell penic diabetic recipients. Because of the need for life-long immunosuppression and the intial surgical risk associated with the transplant procedure, Pancreas transplantation is a therapeutic option only in selected diabetic patients. Based on renal function, three main populations of diabetic recipients of a pancreas transplant can be identified: uremic patients, post-uremic patients (following successful kidney transplantation), and non-uremic patients...

BACKGROUND: Renal transplant is the therapy of choice for patients with chronic renal disease. In recent years, improvement in immunosuppressive drugs reduced early graft loss associated with acute rejection. However, vascular thrombosis, accounting for 5% of early graft loss, can sensitize the recipient for human leukocyte antibodies, reducing the chance for a second transplant. The aim of this study was to identify risk factors for vascular thrombosis in a single transplant center, to design specific prevention protocol...

BACKGROUND: Short- and intermediate-term results have been reported after rapid discontinuation of prednisone (RDP) in kidney transplant recipients. Yet there has been residual concern about late graft failure in the absence of maintenance prednisone. METHODS: From October 1, 1999, through June 1, 2015, we performed a total of 1553 adult 1st and 2nd kidney transplants-1021 with a living donor (LD), 532 with a deceased donor (DD)-under our RDP protocol. We analyzed the 15-year actuarial overall patient survival (PS), graft survival (GS), death-censored graft survival (DCGS), and acute rejection-free survival (ARFS) rates for RDP compared to historical controls on maintenance prednisone...

Patients with end-stage renal diseases on hemodialysis have a high prevalence of hepatitis C infection (HCV). In most patients, treatment for HCV is delayed until postrenal transplant. We assessed the effectiveness and tolerance of ledipasvir/sofosbuvir (LDV/SOF) in 32 postkidney transplant patients infected with HCV. The group was composed predominantly of treatment-naïve (75%) African American (68.75%) males (75%) infected with genotype 1a (62.5%). Most patients received a deceased donor kidney graft (78...

Autosomal Dominant Polycystic Kidney Disease (ADPKD) is a chronic affliction characterized by numerous liver and kidney cysts. There is a gradual but progressive renal and liver impairment which may require combined liver-kidney transplantation. Compression of the retrohepatic Inferior Vena Cava (IVC) by an enlarged polycystic liver may impede clear visualization on pre-operative imaging and miss an underlying thrombosis or obliteration. This may result in an intra-operative surprise. Management can be challenging requiring modification of conventional surgical approach...

Nearly 20% of SLE corresponds to the pediatric population, and 75% of them have kidney involvement representing an important etiology of chronic kidney disease. A correlation between SLE and ANCA-associated vasculitis has been identified as an overlapping syndrome. Kidney allograft recurrence is rare in SLE when disease control is achieved and with nowadays immunosuppression treatment. Histologic transformation is unusual, especially when there are negative serologic markers and no immune complex deposition reported in native kidneys...

BACKGROUND: Avoiding donor specific antibody (DSA) is difficult for sensitized patients. Improved understanding of the risk of low level DSA is needed. METHODS: We retrospectively compared the outcomes of 954 patients transplanted with varied levels of baseline DSA detected by single antigen beads and B flow cytometric crossmatch (XM). Patients were grouped as follows: -DSA/-XM, +DSA/-XM, +DSA/low+XM, +DSA/high+XM, and -DSA/+XM and followed for a mean of 4.1±1...

BACKGROUND: Adenine phosphoribosyltransferase deficiency is an inborn error of metabolism that can cause kidney disease from crystalline nephropathy or kidney stones. METHODS: We present three cases from a single centre with varied presentations to illustrate how increasing awareness led to better patient identification. We then undertook a cross-sectional survey of all the patients identified from the Purine Research Laboratory in the UK since 1974. RESULTS: Our index case presented with recurrent nephrolithiasis and was diagnosed on stone analysis, the second case presented with acute kidney injury and the third case was identified from a biopsy undertaken for acute on chronic kidney injury...

BACKGROUND: After kidney transplantation, fibroblast growth factor-23 (FGF-23) normally returns to baseline within 1 year whereas hyperparathyroidism persists in most kidney transplant (KT) recipients. As a result, serum phosphate remains relatively low in association with increased serum calcium and urinary phosphate excretion when compared to chronic kidney disease patients. The relationship between mineral metabolism and outcomes in long-term KT recipients has not been extensively studied...

There are >100,000 patients waiting for kidney transplants in the United States and a vast need worldwide. Xenotransplantation, in the form of the transplantation of kidneys from genetically engineered pigs, offers the possibility of overcoming the chronic shortage of deceased and living human donors. These genetic manipulations can take the form of (i) knockout of pig genes that are responsible for the expression of antigens against which the primate (human or nonhuman primate) has natural "preformed" antibodies that bind and initiate complement-mediated destruction or (ii) the insertion of human transgenes that provide protection against the human complement, coagulation, or inflammatory responses...

BACKGROUND: Acute kidney injury (AKI) is one of the major determinants of graft survival in kidney transplantation (KTx). Renal Transplant recipients are more vulnerable to develop AKI than general population. AKI in the transplant recipient differs from community acquired, in terms of risk factors, etiology and outcome. Our aim was to study the incidence, risk factors, etiology, outcome and the impact of AKI on graft survival. METHODS: A retrospective analysis of 219 renal transplant recipients (both live and deceased donor) was done...

In 2015, 634387 million people (9% of the world's population) resided in Latin America (LA), with half of those populating Brazil and Mexico. The LA Dialysis and Transplant Registry was initiated in 1991, with the aim of collecting data on renal replacement therapy (RRT) from the 20 LA-affiliated countries. Since then, the Registry has revealed a trend of increasing prevalence and incidence of end-stage kidney disease on RRT, which is ongoing and is correlated with gross national income, life expectancy at birth, and percentage of population that is older than 65 years...

Kidney transplantation from hepatitis C virus (HCV)-positive donors to HCV-positive recipients has always been controversial regarding the safety and the outcomes. In the posttransplant period, treatment of hepatitis C with interferon-based regimens could lead to serious side effects. A patient with chronic hepatitis C and nephropathy, on dialysis, underwent renal transplantation from an HCV-positive donor and received direct-acting antiviral (DAA) drugs thereafter. His renal and liver functions, as well as the hepatitis C viral load, were evaluated at predetermined intervals throughout and after his treatment...
