Few studies have examined the long-term risks of kidney removal to donors despite the increase of frequency in kidney transplantation. This is the 1st study to develop prediction models of chronic kidney disease (CKD) for the 1-year period after donor nephrectomy in living donors. A prospective cohort of patients who underwent donor nephrectomy from March 1, 2006, to December 31, 2016, at the Severance Hospital, Seoul, South Korea, was used. CKD was defined as a glomerular filtration rate (GFR) <60 mL/min/1...

BACKGROUND: The gold standard treatment for primary obstructive megaureter (POM) with declining renal function, worsening obstruction, or recurrent infections is ureteral re-implantation with or without tapering. In infants, open surgery can be technically demanding and associated with significant morbidity. We conducted a systematic review of the literature with special interest in endoscopic management of POM and its outcomes. METHODS: A search was conducted of the MEDLINE/Ovid, PubMed, Embase, and Web of Science databases...

Severe postoperative complications can affect cardiac surgery patients. Levosimendan is a novel calcium sensitizer commonly administered after cardiac surgery. However, the patient benefits are controversial. PubMed, Embase, and the Cochrane library were systematically searched for randomized controlled trials (RCTs) comparing levosimendan with control in adult cardiac surgery patients. Twenty-five studies (3247 patients) were included. Pooled data indicated that levosimendan reduced mortality after cardiac surgery (OR 0...

Situs inversus totalis (SIT) is a rare anomaly. A limited number of reports document surgery for lung cancer in patients with SIT. We report the case of a 68-year-old man with SIT who underwent video-assisted thoracoscopic bisegmentectomies for synchronous double primary lung cancers. Preoperative evaluation of the pulmonary vessels and bronchus by three-dimensional computed tomography (CT) was unavailable owing to the patient's renal function disorder. However, the procedure was safely completed by adequate anatomic identification and careful operative manipulation based on plain CT study...

BACKGROUND: An inflammatory myofibroblastic tumour (IMFT) is a rare mesenchymal neoplasm characterised by anaplastic lymphoma kinase (ALK) gene rearrangements. We assessed the activity and safety of crizotinib, a tyrosine kinase inhibitor, targeting ALK in patients with advanced IMFT either with or without ALK alterations. METHODS: We did a multicentre, biomarker-driven, single-drug, non-randomised, open-label, two-stage phase 2 trial (European Organisation for Research and Treatment of Cancer 90101 CREATE) at 13 study sites (five university hospitals and eight specialty clinics) in eight European countries (Belgium, France, Germany, Italy, Netherlands, Poland, Slovakia, and the UK)...

Renin-angiotensin-system blockers are thought to increase the risk of acute kidney injury after surgery and haemorrhage. We found that Losartan does not cause renal cortical hypoxia after haemorrhage in rats because of decreased renal vascular resistance, but did not evaluate resuscitation. AIM: Study Losartan´s effect on renal cortical and medullary oxygenation, and norepinephrine´s vasopressor effect in a model of resuscitated haemorrhage. METHOD: After seven days Losartan (60 mg/kg/day) or control treatment, male Wistar rats were haemorrhaged 20 % of the blood volume and resuscitated with Ringer's Acetate...
