Thrombotic microangiopathy (TMA) is a well-recognised complication following transplantation, often due to an underlying genetic predisposition, medications or rejection. The use of eculizumab in these settings has been previously described, but its role still remains to be clarified. A 45-year-old man, with a history of type 1 diabetes mellitus and subsequent end-stage kidney failure, presented for a simultaneous pancreas-kidney transplant. Immunologically, he was well matched with the donor, and he received standard induction immunosuppression including tacrolimus...

BACKGROUND En-bloc transplantation is a surgical procedure in which multiple organs are transplanted simultaneously. It has some similarities with multi-organ transplantation but offers certain advantages. This report highlights the experience of our interdisciplinary group regarding the treatment and follow-up of patients who received en-bloc transplantation, with the aim of encouraging the development of this surgical technique. CASE REPORT The first case is a 38-year-old patient with type 1 diabetes mellitus, liver cirrhosis, and chronic kidney failure who received an en-bloc transplant of the liver, pancreas, and kidney with no intraoperative complications...

Exocrine drainage following pancreas transplantation can be achieved by drainage into the bladder or bowel, the latter typically by direct duodeno-jejunostomy; the use of Roux-en-Y enteric drainage is uncommon. We report a retrospective analysis of a single centre experience of Roux-en-Y enteric drainage following pancreas transplantation. Over a 14-year period (2001- 2015), 204 consecutive adult pancreas transplants were performed (96.6% simultaneous pancreas and kidney transplants), of which 26.0% were from donors after circulatory death (DCD)...

BACKGROUND: Successful pancreas transplantation requires surgical expertise and multidisciplinary medical management. The impact of transplant center volume on pancreas allograft survival remains unclear. METHODS: We examined Organ Procurement and Transplantation Network (OPTN) data on 11,568 simultaneous pancreas-kidney (SPK) and 4308 solitary pancreas (pancreas transplant alone and pancreas after kidney) transplants between 2000 and 2013. RESULTS: Average annual transplant center volume was categorized by tertiles into low, medium and high volume, respectively, as follows: 1-6 (n=3,861), 7-13 (n=3,891), and 14-34 (n=3,888) for SPK, and 1-3 (n=1,417), 4-10 (n=1,518), and 11-33 (n=1,377) for solitary pancreas transplants...

The number of pancreas transplants performed in the United States stabilized over the last 3 years after nearly a decade of steady decline. Numbers of new additions to the list also stabilized during the same period. Notably, the persistent decline in pancreas after kidney transplants also seems to have abated, at least for now. The first full year of data after implementation of the new pancreas allocation system revealed no change in the distribution of organs between simultaneous pancreas-kidney (SPK) transplant and pancreas transplant alone...

Pancreatic transplantation is currently the only effective cure for Type 1 diabetes mellitus. It allows long-term glycemic control without exogenous insulin and amelioration of secondary diabetic complications. In India, pancreas transplant has not yet established with only a single successful transplant reported so far in the literature. We report a 24-year-old Type 1 diabetic patient with renal failure who underwent a simultaneous pancreas kidney transplant. On postoperative day 15, he had leak from the graft duodenal stump for which a tube duodenostomy and proximal diversion enterostomy was done...

BACKGROUND: Hemoglobin A1C (HbA1c) levels are often obtained in potential pancreas graft donors to assess the overall long-term functional glycemic control or the possibility of unrecognized diabetes. Although routinely measured, the impact of donor HbA1c levels on pancreas graft outcomes has not been reported. Here, we researched the relationship between donor HbA1c levels and postoperative pancreas graft survival. METHODS: Data from 266 pancreas transplant patients including 182 simultaneous kidney-pancreas and 84 pancreas alone transplants were reviewed for the study...

BACKGROUND: The Pancreatic Donor Risk Index (PDRI) was developed in 2010 in the United States to predict graft survival after pancreas transplantation, based on donor characteristics and logistical and technical conditions. The aim of the study was to validate the utility of PDRI as a pancreas allograft survival predictor in simultaneous pancreas-kidney transplantation (SPK) transplants performed in our hospital between 2000 and 2015. METHODS: This retrospective analysis of 126 SPK transplants was performed by the same surgical team from the years 2000 to 2015...

INTRODUCTION: Simultaneous pancreas-kidney transplantation (SPKT) is a well treatment for patients with insulin-dependent diabetes and end-stage renal disease. Donor age is a barrier to the acceptance of organs. Age matching has been extensively studied in kidney transplantation; however, there are no studies in graft survival after SPKT. We aimed to study the combined influence of the ages of the donors and recipients in graft survival after SPKT. MATERIAL AND METHODS: Donors and recipients are classified as younger (age <40 years) or older (age ≥40 years)...

BACKGROUND Graft thrombosis is the main cause of early graft loss after transplantation. In Japan, pancreases available for transplantation are frequently from marginal donors due to diverse backgrounds in the population. However, marginal tissues increase the risk of early thrombosis in the graft. CASE REPORT Here, we describe a 41-year-old woman with type 1 diabetes mellitus who underwent a simultaneous pancreas-kidney transplantation. The pancreas was retrieved from a 34-year-old man who had experienced severe hemodynamic instability...

Parainfluenza (PIV) can cause serious infections after hematopoietic stem cell or lung transplantation. Limited data exist about PIV infections after kidney transplantation. We describe an outbreak of PIV-3 in a transplant unit. During the outbreak 45 patients were treated on the ward for postoperative care after kidney or simultaneous pancreas-kidney (SPK) transplantation. Altogether 29 patients were tested for respiratory viruses (12 patients with respiratory symptoms, 17 asymptomatic exposed patients) from nasopharyngeal swabs with PCR...

Outcomes of pancreas transplantation from donors with high alcohol consumption are poorly described. The UK Transplant Registry was used to determine whether donor alcohol intake influenced pancreas survival in simultaneous pancreas-kidney (SPK) transplants performed between 2006 and 2012 (n = 770). Recipients were stratified by donor alcohol intake: group I (n = 122)-high recent alcohol intake (>21 or >14 units of alcohol/week in males or females, respectively) or previous alcohol abuse and group II (n = 648)-low/unknown current intake and no previous alcohol abuse...

INTRODUCTION: Invasive fungal disease (IFD) is an important complication after solid organ transplantation (SOT). A marked geographic variation in the epidemiology of IFD after kidney transplantation (KT) has been suggested by the results of previous studies. Nevertheless, data from Latin American centers are scarce. OBJECTIVE: This study sought to describe the epidemiology of IFD at a Brazilian KT center. METHODS: This study was a retrospective single-center cohort study that included patients who underwent KT between 1998 and 2009 and were followed up until July 2015...

INTRODUCTION: We present a case report of ectopic pregnancy (EP) after simultaneous pancreas-kidney transplantation (SKPTx). PRESENTATION OF CASE: A 33-year-old female status post SKPTx suddenly got abdominal pain in the lower level. She had high human chorionic Gonadotropin test. Ultrasonography revealed that there was no fetus in the uterus but a dilated right fallopian tube, which strongly suggested ectopic pregnancy. An emergency operation was performed and a dilated right side uterine tube was found with adhesions to her transplant...

Most cases of strongyloidiasis associated with solid organ transplantation have been due to the reactivation of a latent infection in the recipient as a result of the immunosuppressive therapy; however, donor-derived infections are becoming increasingly frequent. The case of a patient who nearly died of a Strongyloides stercoralis hyperinfection after receiving simultaneous kidney/pancreas transplants is described herein. No specific parasitological tests were performed pre-transplantation, despite the fact that both the recipient and the donor originated from endemic areas...
