INTRODUCTION: "Sent livers" (SL) (interregional allocated organs) are considered extended donor criteria grafts. These grafts influence post-transplant outcome. In our donor allocation program, the number of allocated SLs is increasing. The aim of our study is to provide data supporting the possibility to enlarge the use of SLs through adequate donor-to-recipient matching. METHODS: A retrospective analysis was carried out from our prospective-collected database during 2014...

We report outcomes of repairing the lacerated A2 pulley with extensor retinaculum graft in ten patients (ten fingers) during primary flexor tendon repair in zone 2. Complete A2 pulley lacerations were found in eight fingers and partial A2 pulley laceration in two. We extended the laceration in the sheath to the middle of the A4 or A1 pulley to allow tendon repair with a four-strand core suture. The A2 pulley was reconstructed with an extensor retinaculum graft. All patients followed the early controlled active mobilization protocol and recovered active range of motion at the interphalangeal joints without major extension deficits...

BACKGROUND: Dual kidney transplantation (DKT) was developed in order to improve outcomes from transplantation of extended criteria donors (ECD). This paper examined which surgical techniques have been reported for DKT, and whether any technique had superior patient and graft survival. METHOD: Electronic databases were searched for published studies mapping to MESH terms: ''kidney or renal" AND "transplan*" AND "dual or double". Single case reports; studies of patients less than 18 years old; studies which did not describe the surgical technique; and studies that did not report patient or graft survival were excluded...

Plant secondary metabolites are an almost unlimited reservoir of potential bioactive compounds. In view of the wide chemical space covered by natural compounds, their comprehensive analysis requires multiple and complementary approaches. In this study, numerous chromatographic conditions were tested for the analysis of a set of 120 representative natural compounds covering a wide polarity range (18 log P units). The experiments were performed on 59 different conditions involving 29 RPLC and HILIC dedicated stationary phases, as well as more exotic mixed mode columns...

Kidney transplantation is the treatment of choice for end-stage renal disease. Despite its superiority over dialysis, the persisting organ shortage remains a major drawback. Additional sources to increase the donor pool are grafts recovered from extended criteria donors (ECD) and donation after circulatory death (DCD). Although transplantation of marginal grafts demonstrates promising outcomes, increased rates of primary non-function, delayed graft function, and reduced graft survival have been reported. Cold ischemic injury, caused by static cold storage is a significant risk factor for poor outcome...

Liver transplantation with very old donors is safe, but is associated with an increased incidence of ischemic-type biliary lesions and delayed graft function. Normothermic machine perfusion (NMP) is a novel technique for preservation of liver grafts and has the potential to reduce ischemia-reperfusion injury. A case is reported here of a liver transplantation (LT) with a graft from an 83-year-old brain-dead donor. Procurement was with dual perfusion and en bloc, modified fast technique. Donor kidneys were not transplanted due to severe atherosclerosis and poor perfusion...

Lung transplantation is a limited by donor pool shortage. Despite the efforts to extend the graft acceptability with recurrent donor criteria reformulations, previous cardiothoracic surgery is still considered a contraindication. A donor who underwent cardiac surgery could potentially provide an ideal lung but high intraoperative risks and intrinsic technical challenges are expected during the graft harvesting. The purpose of this study is to present our dedicated protocol and four clinical cases of successful lung procurements from donors who had a previous major cardiac surgery...

BACKGROUND: Recently, the postoperative Model for End stage Liver Disease score (POPMELD) was suggested as a definition of postoperative graft dysfunction and a predictor of outcome after liver transplantation (LT). AIM: The aim of the present study was to validate this concept in the context of extended criteria donor (ECD) organs. PATIENTS AND METHODS: Single-center prospectively collected data (OPAL study/01/11-12/13) of 116 ECD LTs were utilized...

OBJECTIVE: The aim of this study was to compare the outcomes of simultaneous and delayed implantation of kidney grafts in combined liver-kidney transplantation (CLKT). BACKGROUND DATA: Delayed function of the renal graft (DGF), which can result from hypotension and pressor use related to the liver transplantation (LT), may cause worse outcomes in CLKT. METHODS: A total of 130 CLKTs were performed at Indiana University between 2002 and 2015 and studied in an observational cohort study...

Mortality rates on the liver transplant waiting list are increasing. The shortage of organs has resulted in higher utilization of extended criteria donors (ECDs), with centers pushing the limits of what is acceptable for transplantation. Donor quality is more appropriately represented as a continuum of risk, and careful selection and matching of ECD grafts with recipients may lead to excellent outcomes. Although there is no precise definition for what constitutes an ECD liver, this review focuses on frequently cited characteristics, including donor age, steatosis, donation after cardiac death, and donors with increased risk of disease transmission...

BACKGROUND: Ex vivo lung perfusion (EVLP) was primarily developed for evaluation of impaired donor lungs. The good clinical results raise the question for its possible impact on lungs meeting standard criteria. Before application of EVLP on such lungs enters routine clinical practice, it must be demonstrated whether EVLP would affect or improve outcome when used in standard donor lungs. We performed a prospective randomized trial to investigate the role of EVLP in standard lung transplantation (Tx)...

PURPOSE OF REVIEW: Preservation of the liver via normothermic machine perfusion (NMP) is rapidly becoming an area of great academic and clinical interest. This review focuses on the benefits and limitations of NMP and where the role for static cold storage may lie. RECENT FINDINGS: Clinical studies have recently been published reporting the use of NMP in liver preservation for transplantation. They have described the technology to be well tolerated and feasible with potentially improved posttransplant outcomes...

INTRODUCTION: Spider bites as the cause of necrotic skin and soft tissue lesions occur very rarely in Central and Northern Europe. Recluse spiders, distributed almost worldwide, are one of two genera of spiders with confirmed capability of causing necrotic lesions. In the facial region, the resulting defects represent a potential reconstructive challenge, especially in younger patients. METHODS: This case report has been reported in line with the SCARE criteria...

Because of widespread organ shortage, the transplant community has been exploiting more and more so-called "extended criteria" donors. In this scenario, liver grafts harboring benign tumors or large cysts represent an infrequent but potentially valuable source of viable grafts. We depict a challenging case of liver transplantation performed using a graft harboring two large Echinococcus granulosus hydatid cysts in close proximity with the hilar plate and complicated by cystobiliary communication. Although liver transplantation using grafts with hydatid cyst has been rarely reported (three published cases), our case was peculiar as one of the cysts was located close to the hilum and was ruptured into the left hepatic duct...

Ex vivo machine perfusion (MP) is a promising way to better preserve livers prior to transplantation. Currently, no methodology has a verified benefit over simple cold storage. Before becoming clinically feasible, MP requires validation in models that reliably predict human performance. Such a model has been found in porcine liver, whose physiological, anatomical, and immunological characteristics closely resemble the human liver. Since the 1930s, researchers have explored MP as preservation, but only recently have clinical trials been performed...

The use of extended criteria donors who might have previously been deemed unsuitable is an option to increase the organ supply for transplantation. This report presents a pediatric case of a successful liver transplantation from a donor with β-thalassemia intermedia. A patient, 6-year-old female, with a diagnosis of cryptogenic liver cirrhosis underwent deceased donor liver transplantation from a thalassemic donor. Extreme hyperferritinemia was detected shortly after transplantation. The most probable cause of hyperferritinemia was iron overload secondary to transplantation of a hemosiderotic liver...

BACKGROUND: Nonunion involving the metaphyseal region of the distal radius is exceedingly rare, usually involving co-morbidity. Patients that have failed multiple prior conventional surgical interventions represent an even more difficult subset to treat; this investigation examined the utility of a specially designed free vascularized medial femoral condyle flap consisting of a central structural block graft with an extended corticoperiosteal sleeve to wrap around the junctions. METHODS: Six patients (5 males, 1 female) with a mean age of 52 years had failed to achieve union involving the distal radius metaphysis after a mean of 3...
