Central nervous system (CNS) chloromas are an exceedingly rare presentation of CNS relapse in acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL). We report a relapsed ALL patient who presented with 2 separate chloromas and cerebrospinal fluid lymphoblastocytosis, and outline a treatment plan of systemic chemotherapy and CNS-directed radiation therapy. A review of the literature indicates that multiagent chemotherapy combined with CNS radiotherapy is effective, with hematopoietic stem cell transplantation used in half of reported cases...

INTRODUCTION: In live donor liver transplantation (LDLT) portal flush only of the graft is done on the bench. There is no data on antegrade arterial flush along with portal flush of the graft. METHODS: Consecutive patients undergoing elective right lobe LDLT were block-randomized to receive either portal flush only or both portal and antegrade arterial flush. The primary objectives were safety, rate of early allograft dysfunction (EAD), and impact on vascular and biliary complications RESULTS: After randomization there were 40 patients in each group...

BACKGROUND: Thin basement membrane nephropathy (TBMN) is the most common cause of persistent glomerular hematuria. Most individuals with TBMN show a benign course, although it can be difficult to distinguish it from early stages of progressive renal diseases. However, only limited studies address the prognosis of donors with TBMN and their recipients. METHODS: From 2007 to 2016, 11 recipients received kidney grafts from donors with TBMN, and their clinical data were analyzed retrospectively...

BACKGROUND: Solid-organ transplants provide a second chance to thousands of critically ill patients with end-organ failure each year. Immunosuppressants are administered to patients to prevent graft rejection of a transplanted organ, such as a heart, kidney, or liver, while placing the recipient at greater risk for infection and cancer. OBJECTIVE: The literature provides evidence of various cancers that have been found to develop in patients' posttransplantation...

We conducted a retrospective analysis to evaluate outcomes of haploidentical transplantation in adult severe aplastic anaemia (SAA) patients. Fifty-one adults received haploidentical transplantation between May 2011 and December 2016. Patients were administered busulfan (Bu), cyclophosphamide (Cy) and anti-thymoglobulin (ATG) as conditioning regimens, followed by bone marrow and peripheral blood transplantation. The patients' median age was 25 years. Forty-nine patients survived for more than 28 days and all achieved donor myeloid engraftment...

The liver's capacity to grow in response to metabolic need is well known. However, long-term growth of liver allografts in pediatric recipients has not been characterized. A retrospective review of pediatric recipients at a single institution identified patients who had cross-sectional imaging at 1, 5, and 10 years post-transplant. Using volumetric calculations, liver allograft size was calculated and percent SLV were compared across the different time points; 18 patients ranging from 0.3 to 17.7 years old were identified that had imaging at 2 or more time points...

OBJECTIVE: In clinical practice, split-thickness skin graft (STSG) transplantation remains the gold standard for covering large skin defects. Currently, there is no consensus on the optimal thickness of skin grafts. The purpose of our study was to compare the early healing processes of recipient and donor wounds after STSG transplantation using grafts of different thickness. METHOD: This prospective, randomised clinical trial included 84 patients that underwent STSG transplantation surgery for post-burn, post-traumatic or postoperative skin defects...

We evaluated the effect of resveratrol (RSV) on graft survival after islet transplantation (ITx) in diabetic mice. Isolated islets from Balb/c mice (200 IEQ) were transplanted under the kidney capsule of diabetic Balb/c mice. Vehicle or RSV (200 mg/kg/day, orally) was given for 14 days after ITx. Two more control groups [STZ-treated (No-ITx-Control) and STZ+RSV-treated (No-ITx-RSV) mice without ITx] were added. Glucose tolerance tests (GTT) was performed at 14 days after ITx. In vitro, isolated islets pretreated with vehicle or RSV (1 μM) were incubated in a hypoxic chamber (O2 1%, 1hr)...

AIM OF THE STUDY: Intestinal transplantation (IT) is a life-saving procedure for carefully selected patients with intestinal failure. We evaluated patients who had undergone simultaneous intestinal and kidney transplantation (SIKT) to determine whether UK guidelines for inclusion of a renal allograft (dialysis dependent or estimated glomerular filtration rate ((eGFR)) < 45 ml/min/1.73 m2) are justified. METHODS: A single centre analysis was undertaken of adults undergoing IT at the Cambridge Transplant Centre between December 2007 and January 2016...

Brain death (BD) is a condition determined by the complete and irreversible absence of brain functions. Maintenance of vital functions creates an opportunity for organ donation. A retrospective study was carried out in 7 pediatric intensive care units of Argentina (from 1/1/2013 to 9/30/2016) to determine the incidence of clinical and certified BD, and the proportion of effective transplantations. Among deceased patients, 19.14% (147/768) met the clinical requirements for BD, and the main cause of BD was multiple trauma...

The Kidney Allocation System (KAS) was implemented in December 2014 with unknown impact on the pediatric waitlist. To understand the effect of KAS on pediatric registrants, deceased donor kidney transplant (DDKT) rate was assessed using interrupted time series analysis and time-to-event analysis. Two allocation eras were defined with an intermediary washout period: Era 1 (01/01/2013-09/01/2014), Era 2 (09/01/2014-03/01/2015), and Era 3(03/01/2015-03/01/2017). When using Cox proportional hazards, there was no significant association between allocation era and DDKT likelihood as compared to Era 1 (Era 3: aHR: 1...

Paediatric haematology, oncology and bone marrow transplant (BMT) patients frequently require transfusion of blood products. Our institution required a new transfusion consent be obtained every admission. The objectives of this project were to: revise inpatient blood products consent form to be valid for 1 year, decrease provider time spent consenting from 15 to <5 min per admission, and improve provider frustration with the consent process. Over 6 months, we determined the average number of hospitalisations requiring transfusions in a random sampling of haematology/oncology/BMT inpatients...

Purpose: Recent studies investigating new strategies to modulate the immune system have utilized animal models of liver transplantation (LT). However, the anhepatic phase (AHP) remains a crucial problem in LT. The aim of the present study is to introduce a technique for successful orthotopic LT in cynomolgus monkeys using an early-reperfusion strategy. Methods: Orthotopicallo-LT was performed with seven donor/recipient pairs of cynomolgus monkeys. Results: In 2 recipients, liver allografts were perfused after suprahepatic inferior vena cava (SHIVC), portal vein (PV), and infrahepatic inferior vena cava (IHIVC) anastomosis...

Background: Stem cell units (SCUs) that are cryopreserved prior to both autologous and allogeneic hematopoietic stem cell transplants (for donor lymphocyte infusion) remain unused or partially used several times, and become an increased burden to blood banks/SCU repositories. Because of the scarcity of data regarding the duration for which the storage is useful, there is no general consensus regarding disposal of SCUs. Methods: We conducted a retrospective audit of SCU utilization in 435 patients who planned to undergo either autologous stem cell transplantation (auto-SCT) (N=239) or allogeneic stem cell transplantation (allo-SCT) (N=196) at a tertiary cancer care center between November 2007 to January 2015...
