Lung transplatation

Shravani Pasupneti, Kapil Patel, Joshua J Mooney, Laveena Chhatwani, Gundeep Dhillon, David Weill
While multiple donor characteristics have been cited as ideal for lung transplantation, there are minimal widely accepted exclusion criteria. One criterion that many centers view with hesitation is death by drowning. However, recent literature suggests such donors may result in acceptable outcomes following transplantation. This review highlights a case of a patient who underwent a successful bilateral lung transplant from a donor following a drowning event. A review of the current literature is presented, concluding with a new proposed set of favorable donor criteria following death by drowning...

OBJECTIVE: To explore the safety and efficiency of unrelated donor peripheral blood stem cells (URD-PBSC) transplantation combined with umbilical cord mesenchymal stem cells (UC-MSC). METHODS: The clinical data of 49 patients received unrelated donor peripheral blood stem cells transplantation (URD-PBSCT) for treating hematologic malignancies were retrospectively evaluated, including 12 ANLL, 17 ALL, 18 CML and 2 MDS. Out of them, 22 patients received the URD-PBSCT combined with UC-MSC and 27 patients received only URD-PBSCT...

OBJECTIVE: To analyse our results on liver transplantation (LTX) in primitive malignant unresectable liver tumours in children and discussing its controversial indications in order to our experience. METHODS/PATIENTS: We report 12 patients with ages ranging from 6 months to 14 years old. They had hepatoblastoma (11) and fibrolamellar hepatocelullar carcinoma (1) without cirrhosis. LTX was considered as primary treatment in 10 patients (PRETEXT IV or any grade if extension to retrohepatic cava vein, 3 hepatic veins or porta vein were assessed) and as rescue therapy after recurrence (1) or persistence of unresectable macroscopic rests (2)...

BACKGROUND & OBJECTIVE: Percutaneous microwave coagulation therapy (PMCT) is an important mini-invasive technique used to treat solid tumors. This study was to evaluate the efficacy and safety of PMCT with a new homemade equipment for experimental VX2 lung carcinoma in rabbits, and optimize technical parameters. METHODS: VX2 lung cancer model was established in 30 New Zealand rabbits by tissue clot suspension injection. The rabbits were divided into 3 groups: the rabbits in control group received sham operation; those in surgical A group and surgical B group were treated with computed tomography (CT)-guided PMCT at 40 W for 120 s or at 80 W for 60 s...

Mucormycosis infections, caused by fungi of the families Rhizopus, Mucor or Absidia, are typically rapidly progressive and often fatal. We report a 27-year-old male with acute myeloid leukemia (AML) developing an invasive pulmonary-CNS mucormycosis during the neutropenic period after salvage induction chemotherapy; the infection was successfully controlled with surgery and antifungal therapy. The patient received two courses of consolidation chemotherapy and underwent autologous stem cells transplantation (ASCT) while receiving secondary antifungal systemic prophylaxis with liposomal Amphotericin B (L-AMB, Ambisome)...

BACKGROUND: We compared Celsior solution, a new and original extracellular preservation solution, with blood-based Wallwork's solution. METHODS: In two groups of isolated rat lungs submitted to 4 hours of cold ischemia, pulmonary arterial and venous resistances, coefficient of filtration, and wet-to-dry lung weight ratio were determined at baseline and after 90 minutes of reperfusion. RESULTS: After ischemia-reperfusion, percentage of increases above the respective baseline coefficient of filtration values were 93% +/- 7% in the Wallwork group and 7% +/- 3% in the Celsior group (p < 0...

The present experimental study shows that anticancer agents may accumulate around electrodes placed in saline and in lung when the electrodes are charged with direct electric current. We also observed that electrochemical therapy (ECT) in combination with chemotherapy was more effective for treatment of localized tumours (human lung cancer PC-13 transplated to nude mice) than was ECT or systemic chemotherapy alone. In a clinical study, 26 patients (27 lesions) received ECT with or without systemic chemotherapy...

A serially transplatable tumor model was established by inoculating subcutaneously the surgical specimen of a patient with mixed type small cell lung carcinoma into nude mice (BALB/C nu/nu). A human small cell lung carcinoma cell line cultured in vitro was established from that tumor in nude mice. The cultured cell line gave a typical growth pattern with small round feature, cell clusters in suspension and float growth. Pathological sections of both the patient's tumor and transplantable tumor in nude mice showed the same morphological features...

Effects of pretreatment with BCG, strain Japan, on tumor growth were studied using a transplatable methylcholanthrene (MCA)-induced fibrosarcoma in C3H/He mice. Injection of BCG7 weeks before tumor inoculation at a site distant from the tumor caused a slight inhibition of tumor growth. A low dose of tumor cells did not grow at the BCG-primed site when BCG was injected 7 and 11 weeks before the tumor. When a high dose was inoculated into the BCG-primed site, inhibition of the primary tumor occurred in mice which had received BCG 7 weeks previously, but the number of distant metastases in the popliteal lymph node and the lungs was increased in mice pretreated with BCG at any time...
