BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES: The fraction of kidneys procured for transplant that are discarded is rising in the United States. Identifying donors from whom only one kidney was discarded allows us to control for donor traits and better assess reasons for organ discard. DESIGN, SETTING, PARTICIPANTS, & MEASUREMENTS: We conducted a retrospective cohort study using United Network for Organ Sharing Standard Transplant Analysis and Research file data to identify deceased donors from whom two kidneys were procured and at least one was transplanted...

BACKGROUND: Death with graft function (DWGF) is an important cause of long-term loss of grafts and patients. In this study, we investigated clinical characteristics and causes of DWGF in kidney transplant recipients. METHODS: We recruited kidney allograft recipients who underwent surgery during 1973-2016 at Seoul National University Hospital in Korea (n = 2137). We divided recipients into four groups: alive with graft function (AWGF), alive with graft loss (AWGL), DWGF, and death with graft loss (DWGL)...

BACKGROUND: The number of kidney transplant recipients (KTRs) from diabetic nephropathy (DN) and with cardiovascular disease (CVD) history has increased worldwide. Nevertheless, epidemiologic evidence of CVD in KTRs remains limited. METHODS: We investigated post-transplant CVD in 1614 adult KTRs between 1990 and 2014. CVD was defined according to the international classification of diseases (ICD-10). All-cause mortality was also investigated. Final follow-up was performed in March 2016...

BACKGROUND The incidence of incisional hernia following renal transplantation is 1.1% to 3.8%. The risk factors are immunosuppressive medications, impaired tissue quality, neuromuscular trauma due to the operation, and denervation. The incidence has been decreasing based on the shift from hockey-stick incision method to inguinal oblique incision method. The aim of this study was to minimize the development of incisional hernias due to renal transplantation. MATERIAL AND METHODS Twenty-four patients who underwent renal transplantation in 2015-2017 were retrospectively examined...

Cardiovascular disease (CVD) is frequent after kidney transplantation (KT). This study investigated CVD prediction in KT by information available before KT or within 6 months after KT. The study cohort consisted of 629 patients with KT in 2005-10 and with adult age at KT. The end point was incidence up to 2015 of CVD (coronary heart disease, cerebrovascular disease, peripheral artery disease). Graft failure, non-CVD death with functioning graft, and loss to follow-up were considered competing events. CVD prediction was investigated for 34 variables by means of competing-risks regression...

BACKGROUND: Urinary tract infections (UTIs) are the commonest infectious complication in kidney transplant recipients (KTRs). No recommendations exist regarding treatment of asymptomatic bacteriuria. We aimed to identify potential risk factors and microbiological profile for UTIs, the role of treatment of asymptomatic bacteriuria, and effects on graft outcomes of bacteriuria within the first year post-transplantation. METHODS: We performed a retrospective analysis of UTIs in KTRs transplanted between January 2012 and December 2013 in 2 transplantation centers...

INTRODUCTION: Simultaneous pancreas-kidney transplantation (SPKT) constitutes the therapy of choice for diabetes type1 or type2 associated with end-stage renal disease, because is the only proven method to restore normo-glicemic control in the diabetic patient. METHODS: Retrospective and descriptive study of a series of 175 patients who underwent SPKT from March 1995 to April 2016. We analyze donor and recipient characteristics, perioperative variables and immunosuppression, post-transplant morbi-mortality, patient and graft survival, and risk factors related with patient and graft survival...

BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES: Evidence that kidney transplantation is associated with better survival compared to dialysis stems from data in populations with short durations of dialysis exposure. Recent changes in allocation policy increase access to transplantation for patients with longer dialysis exposure. The objective of this study was to determine the association of transplantation with survival in patients with ≥10 years of dialysis treatment. DESIGN, SETTING, PARTICIPANTS, & MEASUREMENTS: Our study of n=5365 patients in the Scientific Registry of Transplant Recipients determined the adjusted relative risk of death in recipients of a deceased donor kidney transplant after ≥10 years of dialysis treatment compared with waitlisted patients with the same dialysis exposure in a time-dependent nonproportional hazards analysis...

BACKGROUND: End-stage renal disease (ESRD), defined as the need for chronic dialysis and/or kidney transplantation (KTx), is a known complication after heart transplant (HTx). However, factors associated with ESRD are not well elucidated. The objectives of this study were to determine the prevalence, risk factors, and outcomes associated with ESRD after pediatric HTx. METHODS: Scientific Registry of Transplant Recipients data were linked, using direct identifiers, to the United States Renal Data System to identify patients (aged ≤ 18 years) who underwent primary HTx between 1989 and 2013...

OBJECTIVE: With the prolonged life expectancy in solid organ transplant recipients, their quality of life and fertility desire become of particular concern. Pregnancy in pancreas-alone transplantation, although rare and complicated to manage, is not impossible anymore. We here report such a case with literature review to address this issue. CASE REPORT: A 29-year-old, primigravida patient with underlying stage 4 chronic renal insufficiency and type 1 diabetes mellitus post pancreas-alone transplantation 5 years prior to her initial visit consulted our service...

AIM OF STUDY: The diagnosis of biliary atresia (BA) remains challenging and delay can lead to significant morbidity with time to surgery a key factor in determining outcome. Prematurity may impact on outcome potentially delaying diagnosis. We sought to assess whether the premature BA infants (PBA) have a delayed time to surgery and as such, worse outcomes? METHODS: Review of a single-centre prospectively maintained database. Prematurity was defined as delivery < 37/40 gestation...

Post-transplant diabetes mellitus (PTDM) is common after most types of solid organ transplantation, though the actual incidence is as yet unknown because of the use of different diagnostic criteria. PTDM is the result of individual risk factors as well as risk factors associated with the transplant itself, particularly immunosuppressants. Previously called New Onset Diabetes, in many cases inadequate screening for diabetes before transplant cannot assure that the diabetes is new after transplant. The most recent international consensus guidelines suggest diagnosis should be delayed until the patient is taking maintenance doses of immunosuppressants even if they require treatment in the immediate hospitalization...

The long-term management of type-1 diabetes (T1D) is currently achieved through lifelong exogenous insulin injections. Although there is no cure for T1D, transplantation of pancreatic islets of Langerhans has the potential to restore normal endocrine function versus the morbidity of hypoglycemic unawareness that is commonly associated with sudden death among fragile diabetics. However, since endocrine islet tissues form a small proportion of the pancreas, sufficient islet numbers can be reached only by combining islets from multiple organ donors and the transplant plug contains significantly high levels of exocrine acinar tissue, thereby exacerbating immune responses...

Increasing incidence of various cancers has been reported in diabetic patients. O-linked N-acetylglucosamine (O-GlcNAc) modification of proteins at serine/threonine residues (O-GlcNAcylation) is an essential post-translational modification that is upregulated in diabetic patients and has been implicated in tumor growth. However, the mechanisms by which O-GlcNAcylation promotes tumor growth remain unclear. Given that AMP-activated kinase (AMPK) has been thought to play important roles in suppressing tumor growth, we evaluated the involvement of AMPK O-GlcNAcylation on the growth of LoVo cells, a human colon cancer cell line...

Non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) occurs with higher prevalence in patients with inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) relative to the general population, and susceptibility is related to the metabolic syndrome, as well as higher prevalence of bowel resection and gut microbiotal factors. Liver complications, including NAFLD and primary sclerosing cholangitis (PSC) contribute to treatment and prognosis of patients with IBD. However, the potential interplay of NAFLD and PSC is not well understood. We retrospectively assessed severity of steatosis and steatohepatitis in liver specimens from 49 patients with IBD only, 44 with IBD and co-morbid PSC, and 30 with IBD and PSC after liver transplantation...

The first clinical trials of cell therapy in stroke were first published in the 2000s and consisted of neural stems cells transplanted via the intracerebral pathway. Since mesenchymal stem cells showed similar capacities to differentiate into neural cells and allowed autologous cell transplantation, they were then preferentially studied, including diabetes and hypertension. More recently, bone marrow derived mononuclear cells were successfully transplanted in stroke with no need of culture processing, and simple collection by density gradient centrifugation rendering them immediately ready for use...

BACKGROUND: There has been little investigation into the potential interaction of recipient characteristics with the association of pre-transplant renal functions and survival after lung transplantation. In this study we tested the hypothesis that association of pre-transplant renal function and post-transplant mortality varies among recipient subgroups. METHODS: We queried the United Network for Organ Sharing (UNOS) database for adult patients (≥18 years of age) undergoing lung transplantation between May 2005 and March 2015...

OBJECTIVE: Now that long-term survival after successful renal transplantation is no longer limited by excessive cardiovascular risk, the primary care physician should consider that infection and malignancy are leading noncardiovascular causes of death even in the recipient with diabetes. METHODS: We accessed the National Institutes of Health-sponsored Folic Acid for Vascular Outcome Reduction in Transplantation (FAVORIT) study population (4010 renal transplant recipients with elevated homocysteine levels) studied to determine whether folate and B12 supplementation would reduce cardiovascular end points...

In allogenic islet transplantation (IT), high purity of islet preparations and low contamination by nonislet cells are generally favored. The aim of the present study was to analyze the relation between the purity of transplanted preparations and graft function during 5 years post-IT. Twenty-four patients with type 1 diabetes, followed for 5 years after IT, were enrolled. Metabolic parameters and daily insulin requirements were compared between patients who received islet preparations with a mean purity <50% (LOW purity) or ≥50% (HIGH purity)...
