The first liver transplant in Saudi Arabia was performed in 1991; however, it was not until 1994 that the first structured liver transplant program was launched. Until 1997, all liver transplants in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia (KSA) were deceased donor liver transplantations. Programs performing liver transplants needed the authorization of the Saudi Center for Organ Transplantation (SCOT), which provides the essential support for organ procurement and allocation as well as regulatory support for organ transplantation in the country...

RATIONALE: Portal vein thrombosis is a complication after liver transplantation and cavernous transformation of the portal vein (CTPV) is a result of portal vein thrombosis, with symptoms of portal hypertension revealed by an enhanced CT scan. Meso-Rex bypass is an artificial shunt connecting the left portal vein to the superior mesenteric vein and is mainly used for idiopathic cavernomas. This technique is also used for post-transplant portal vein thrombosis in pediatric patients thereby bypassing obstructed sites of the extrahepatic portal vein...

Biliary complications are considered to be the Achilles' heel of liver transplantation. The most common complications are leaks and bile duct strictures. Strictures can arise at the level of the anastomosis (anastomotic strictures; AS) or at other locations in the biliary tree (non-anastomotic strictures; NAS). Endoscopic treatment via endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP) is considered to be the preferred therapy for these complications. This review will focus on the diagnostic modalities, new insights in etiology of biliary complications and outcomes after different endoscopic therapies, in both deceased donor transplantation and living-donor liver transplantations...

BACKGROUND: In parallel with the obesity epidemic, liver transplantation for nonalcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH) is increasing dramatically in North America. Although survival outcomes are similar to other etiologies, liver transplantation in the NASH population has been associated with significantly increased resource utilization. We sought to compare outcomes between live donor liver transplantation (LDLT) and deceased donor liver transplantation (DDLT) at a high volume North American transplant center, with a particular focus on resource utilization...

Liver transplantation (LT) is a life-saving procedure in patients with end-stage liver disease. The number of patients in the waiting list for LT has steadily increased over time, so removing liver from deceased donors with unusual disorders could possibly be used for transplantation. We describe a case of LT from a donor with "aplastic anemia" to a patient with liver failure due to hepatitis C. Aplastic anemia is a syndrome of bone marrow failure. Aplastic anemia is one of the most common conditions linked to transfusion dependence, and long-term repeated transfusion inevitably results in iron overload...

INTRODUCTION: Although patient and graft survival rate has increased in recent years, biliary complications after liver transplantation are associated with significant morbidity and mortality. METHODS AND MATERIALS: We reviewed the database of 1930 patients who underwent deceased donor liver transplantation between 2000 and 2013. The patients had abnormal results in liver tests, as well as fever and jaundice. Abdominal sonography was performed, and if complication was identified, the patient underwent an interventional procedure by endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography or percutaneous transhepatic cholangiography...

Classical MSUD is often fatal without appropriate medical interventions because of metabolic crisis. There are numerous reports suggesting the therapeutic potential of deceased donor liver transplantation for MSUD. However, the usefulness of LDLT for MSUD is unknown. We report a case of classical MSUD, which was successfully managed by LDLT from the patient's father at 1 year of age. Abnormal brain findings, which were cured with effective treatment, gradually disappeared after LDLT. The patient then developed normally...

Patients with hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) may be eligible for liver transplantation. Liver transplant candidates with HCC compete for the same deceased donor organs as those without HCC. These scarce organs must be allocated fairly and justly to those who will benefit most. Unlike most other cancers, HCC is often diagnosed noninvasively by imaging without biopsy confirmation. Therefore, radiologists play an important role in diagnosing definite HCC (i.e., LR-5 category) that counts toward staging and determination of liver transplant eligibility...

Biliary stricture is a common cause of morbidity after liver transplantation (LT). This study aimed to determine the risk factors for post-transplant biliary anastomotic strictures (BAS), focusing on perioperative platelet counts. We enrolled 771 consecutive recipients who underwent ABO-identical/compatible deceased donor LT with duct-to-duct biliary reconstruction from January 2000 to June 2012. BAS was identified in 142 cases. The median time for stricture development was 176 days. Preoperative and postoperative platelet counts within 5 days after LT were significantly lower in patients with BAS than those without BAS...

Living donor liver transplantation (LDLT) is an effective alternative to deceased liver transplantation (DDLT) for end-stage liver disease. Although advances in surgical techniques, immunosuppressive management, and post-transplant care have improved the overall outcomes of LDLT, biliary strictures remain the major unsolved problem. Endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP) is currently considered the first-line therapy for biliary strictures following LDLT with duct-to-duct reconstruction, with percutaneous and surgical interventions reserved for patients with unsuccessful management via ERCP...

BACKGROUND AND AIMS: The Share 35 policy was implemented in June 2013 to improve equity in access to liver transplantation (LT) between patients with fulminant liver failure and those with cirrhosis and severe hepatic decompensation. The aim of this study was to assess post-LT outcomes after Share 35. METHODS: Relevant donor, procurement, and recipient data were extracted from the OPTN/UNOS database. All adult deceased donor LT from January 1, 2010 to March 31, 2016 were included in the analysis...

A recurrent YAP1-TFE3 gene fusion has been identified in WWTR1-CAMTA1-negative epithelioid hemangioendotheliomas arising in soft tissue, bone, and lung, but not in liver. We present the first case of TFE3-rearranged hepatic epithelioid hemangioendothelioma in a 39-year-old Taiwanese woman. Computed tomography scan revealed multifocal, ill-defined nodules involving both hepatic lobes. She then underwent deceased donor liver transplantation. Histologically, the tumors in the liver explant showed a biphasic growth pattern...

Portal vein thrombosis remains a challenging issue in liver transplantation. When thrombectomy is not feasible due to diffuse portosplenomesenteric thrombosis, other modalities are adapted such as the use of a jump graft or portal tributaries or even multivisceral transplantation. For patients with diffuse thrombosis of the splanchnic venous system, a large pericholedochal varix can be a useful vessel for providing splanchnic blood flow to the graft and for relieving portal hypertension. We report our experience of successfully treating a patient with diffuse portosplenomesenteric thrombosis using a pericholedochal varix for portal flow reconstruction during deceased donor liver transplantation and eventually preventing unnecessary multivisceral transplantation...

Large-for-size syndrome (LFSS) is controversial in pediatric living donor liver transplantation patients and is associated with a poor graft outcome. Similar situations in deceased donor liver transplantation (DDLT) in adults have not been reported frequently, and there are no official guidelines worldwide. Deceased donation is extremely limited in Japan, and when a larger liver is allocated for a very sick small recipient in Japan, transplantation with a plan to address LFSS might be necessary. The patient is a 58-year-old female patient who had acute liver failure with coma...

Although Roux-en Y hepaticojejunostomy was previously recommended for the biliary reconstruction in liver transplantation for primary sclerosing cholangitis (PSC), some recent reports showed no difference in the graft survival between Roux-en Y and duct-to-duct anastomosis in deceased-donor liver transplantation. On the other hand, considering the risk of recurrence and the short length of the bile duct of the graft, duct-to-duct biliary anastomosis has never been reported in a patient undergoing living-donor liver transplantation (LDLT) for PSC...

Herein, we report our experience of performing allogeneic orthotopic liver transplantation (LT) in nonhuman primates. We designed an allogeneic ABO-compatible orthotopic LT model in monkeys in a manner similar to that used in humans. We applied almost the same surgical procedures used for human conventional deceased donor LT. A total of 6 monkeys underwent allogeneic LT. One cynomolgus monkey aged 45 months (3.4 kg) and 5 rhesus macaque monkeys aged 50.2 ± 14.8 months (5.40 ± 0.33 kg) were used as recipients...

BACKGROUND: The incidence of portal vein thrombosis after pediatric living-donor liver transplantation (LDLT) is reported to be higher than that after deceased-donor or adult liver transplantation. Portal vein thrombosis can cause portal hypertension and related complications, including portal hypertensive gastropathy or portal hypertensive enteropathy (PHE). PHE, in particular, can lead to severe intestinal bleeding, which is extremely difficult to treat. However, the pathogenesis of and appropriate treatment for PHE are not clearly defined, especially after pediatric LDLT...

The enzymatic defect in MSUD results in accumulation of neurotoxic metabolites of BCAAs. LTX has shown to be a feasible strategy in patients non-responsive to diet. Because of sufficient enzyme activity in extrahepatic tissues in healthy people, the MSUD liver graft is a suitable domino organ. We present the first case of a technical challenging ex situ split of a MSUD domino organ transplanted into two pediatric recipients. The domino graft donor was a 21-year-old female (58 kg) suffering from MSUD with recurrent metabolic decompensation despite strict diet...

United Network for Organ Sharing (UNOS) policies allows for ABO non-identical liver transplantation (LT) in candidates with Model for End-Stage Liver Disease (MELD) scores greater than 30. Previous studies showed ABO non-identical LT resulted in an 18% and 55% net gain in livers for B and AB candidates. These results suggested that the current liver ABO allocation policies may need refinement. There are, however, strong associations between ABO blood groups and race/ethnicity. We hypothesized that race/ethnicity is associated with ABO non-identical LT and that this is primarily influenced by recipient ABO status...
