BACKGROUND: Poor renal function is associated with higher mortality after liver transplantation. Our aim was to understand the impact of kidney graft quality according to the kidney donor profile index (KDPI) score on survival after simultaneous liver-kidney (SLK) transplantation. METHODS: Using United Network of Organ Sharing data from 2002 to 2013 for adult deceased donor SLK recipients, we compared survival and renal graft outcomes according to KDPI. RESULTS: Of 4207 SLK transplants, 6% were from KDPI >85% donors...

PURPOSE: At present, there is a gathering storm that is threatening the very practice of the art of medicine for future generations as never before. This article gives successful examples and calls for approaches that support improvements in education and health care for low-income and minority populations. METHODS: To address this problem, the University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio established the Regional Academic Health Center (RAHC) along the Texas/Mexico border, which provides educational opportunities, clinical partnerships, and facilities to attract faculty to research and examine the health problems that are common in the Hispanic population...

Liver transplantation is the only potentially curative treatment for patients with end-stage liver disease. An extensive medical and psychosocial evaluation is performed in an attempt to determine which patients are likely to have acceptable outcomes with the procedure. The limited number of donor livers relative to patients that need a liver transplant, and the occurrence of significant deaths in the waiting group, has motivated many transplant programs to agree to put living donors at risk to help solve this problem...

BACKGROUND: Radiofrequency thermal ablation has been used as a treatment for several types of hepatic malignancies. Many of these lesions exist in the presence of cirrhosis. Limitations exist to the size of the ablations and, subsequently, the efficacy of treatment. Hepatic vascular inflow occlusion has been advocated as an adjunctive measure to increase the efficacy of the ablation. We present a model in the human cirrhotic liver that demonstrates the advantage of blood flow occlusion during radiofrequency ablation...

OBJECTIVE: We performed a study to determine the correlation between the diameter of the echogenic response observed with intraoperative sonography during radiofrequency ablation of the cirrhotic liver and the mean diameter of tissue necrosis. SUBJECTS AND METHODS: A total of 22 intraoperative radiofrequency ablations were created in 11 cirrhotic livers. The largest diameter of the sonographically observed echogenic response surrounding and perpendicular to the radiofrequency probe was measured...
