OBJECTIVES: To present our experience with simultaneous living donor liver and kidney (SLK) transplantation from two different living donors. PATIENTS AND METHODS: We performed five SLK transplantations from two different living donors from November 2006 to December 2010. Four patients were males and one, female. Their age range was 47 to 66 years (mean, 55 years). The primary liver diseases included hepatitis B virus (n=2), alcoholic liver cirrhosis (n=2), cryptogenic liver disease (n=1), and hepatitis C virus with hepatocellular carcinoma (n=1)...

Acute kidney injury (AKI) is common in liver failure prior to orthotopic liver transplantation (OLT) and may complicate the intraoperative course. We describe the logistics of intraoperative continuous renal replacement therapy (CRRT) during OLT and the associated clinical outcomes. We performed a retrospective review of adult patients (age > 18 years) receiving intraoperative CRRT during OLT at the University of Alberta Hospital between January 1, 1996 and December 31, 2005. Demographic, detailed clinical, and perioperative data, physiologic and laboratory measures, details of renal replacement therapy (RRT) provided, and data on renal recovery and survival were ascertained...

Warm autoimmune hemolytic anemia (WAIHA), a rare disease (0.2-1 per 100,000 population), ranges from an indolent form with mild hemolysis to a life-threatening condition that necessitates transfusion of incompatible red cells. WAIHA can be either idiopathic or secondary to medications or to a lymphoproliferative disorder. We report a case of profound hemolytic anemia in a liver-transplant eligible patient who was diagnosed with cirrhosis secondary to non-alcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH). The patient initially was treated with red cell transfusion, iv immunoglobulin, and steroids...

A 47-year-old man underwent liver transplantation for cirrhosis secondary to hepatitis C and alcoholism. This was complicated by primary donor liver dysfunction and acute renal failure requiring dialysis. Gadolinium magnetic resonance cholangiopancreatography was performed 2 weeks post transplant, and a second successful liver transplant was performed 1 week later. Shortly after this, the patient developed rapidly progressive erythematous plaques over his abdomen, lower and upper limbs. There was marked oedema and skin induration...

Calciphylaxis is a rare life threatening disorder of small- and medium-sized vessel calcification that leads to cutaneous necrosis. While its pathogenesis is uncertain, nearly all cases have been described in patients with end-stage renal disease (ESRD) on dialysis or following renal transplantation which is why the lesion has also been referred to as calcific uremic arteriolopathy. We describe a patient with alcoholic cirrhosis and normal renal function who developed calciphylaxis. Due to infected cutaneous lesions, he developed an acute post-infectious glomerulonephritis with extra capillary proliferation...
