We previously reported results of interferon (IFN)-free daclatasvir and asunaprevir for the treatment of recurrent hepatitis C virus (HCV) genotype 1 infection after liver transplantation (LT). Here we report three patients who achieved viral response with no effect on the blood concentrations of immunosuppressive agents following sofosbuvir plus ledipasvir treatment. The first patient was a 68-year-old female with HCV-related liver cirrhosis who failed to respond to pegylated-IFN and ribavirin (PEG-IFN/RBV) after living donor LT...

BACKGROUND: Living donor liver transplantation is now an established technique for treating children with end-stage liver disease. Few data exist about liver transplantation for exclusively young infants, especially infants of <3 months of age. We report our single-center experience with 12 cases in which living donor liver transplantation (LT) was performed during the first 3 months of life and compare the results with those of older infants who underwent LT. All of the patients were treated at the National Center of Child Health and Development, Tokyo, Japan...

BACKGROUND Acute liver failure (ALF) is known to be a rapidly progressive and fatal disease. Various models which could help to estimate the post-transplant outcome for ALF have been developed; however, none of them have been proved to be the definitive predictive model of accuracy. We suggest a new predictive model, and investigated which model has the highest predictive accuracy for the short-term outcome in patients who underwent living donor liver transplantation (LDLT) due to ALF. MATERIAL AND METHODS Data from a total 88 patients were collected retrospectively...

BACKGROUND: The objective of the study was to establish a right-lobe graft weight (GW) estimation formula for living donor liver transplantation (LDLT) from right-lobe graft volume without veins (GVw/o_veins), including portal vein and hepatic vein measured by computed tomographic (CT) volumetry, and to compare its estimation accuracy with those of existing formulas. Right-lobe GW estimation formulas established with the use of graft volume with veins (GVw_veins) sacrifice accuracy because GW measured intra-operatively excludes the weight of blood in the veins...

Organ transplantation is considered the therapy of choice for end-stage organ failure. However, the growing gap between the number of patients waiting for transplantation and available organs continue to be the number one issue facing the transplant community. As a consequence the major focus in liver transplantation has been developing strategies to increase available donors, including the use of live donor liver segments, splitting deceased donor grafts for two patients and the use of organs procured from donors after circulatory death (DCD)...

OBJECTIVE: Acute kidney injury (AKI) is common after liver transplantation (LT) and has a significant impact on outcomes. Although several risk factors for post-LT AKI have been identified, the effect of intraoperative hemodynamic status on post-LT AKI remains unknown. Therefore, the authors aimed to investigate the relationship between hemodynamic parameters during LT and postoperative AKI. DESIGN: A retrospective observational study. SETTING: University hospital...

Children with ESRD in need of RRT are commonly managed by PD due to difficulty with vascular access for HD and the relatively large extracorporeal blood volume required. Major abdominal surgery may result in injury to the peritoneum and consequent adhesion, thereby resulting in a reduction in the anatomical capacity and transport capability across the peritoneal membrane. Here, we report successful resumption of PD after LDLT in two pediatric patients. The causes of ESRD were PH1 and juvenile nephronophthisis, respectively...

RATIONALE: With the development of laparoscopic technique, the total laparoscopic living donor right hemihepatectomy (LLDRH) procurement surgery has been successfully performed in many liver transplant centers all over the world, and the number of cases is continuing to increase. We report our case of laparoscopic right graft resection with venous outflow reconstruction using cadaveric common iliac artery allograft in our center and review literatures about total LLDRH surgery. PATIENT CONCERNS AND DIAGNOSES: A 40-year-old male living donor for right hepatectomy was selected after pretransplant evaluation including laboratory tests, liver volume, anatomy of hepatic vein, artery, portal vein, and bile duct...

BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: Although the incidence of living donor death is low in Japan, statistics show one living liver donor death in more than 7000 living liver transplants. Thus, medical transplant personnel must recognize that the death of a living organ or tissue transplant donor can occur and develop an appropriate risk management program. METHODS AND RESULTS: We describe how Nagasaki University Hospital established and implemented a Donor Advocacy Team (DAT) program: a risk management program for initiation in the event of serious, persistent, or fatal impairment of an organ, tissue, or cell transplantation from a living donor...

Robert A Fisher
Adult-to-adult living donor liver transplantation (A2ALDLT), outside of Asia, remains an important yet underutilized gift of life. For patients with end-stage liver disease, A2ALDLT is a proven transplantation option, with lower waiting list mortality and suffering, and equivalent or better allograft and patient survival than deceased-donor liver transplantation (DDLT). The risks to living donors and the benefit to their recipients have been carefully defined with long-term level 1 and 2 evidence-based study...

BACKGROUND Previous studies have reported poor graft regeneration after living donor liver transplantation (LDLT) due to inappropriate portal venous flow (PVF). In this study, we investigated the perioperative factors affecting postoperative PVF after LDLT. MATERIAL AND METHODS The perioperative data of 366 LDLT patients were retrospectively reviewed. The average PVF on postoperative days 1, 3, and 5 was measured and dichotomized at a cut-off value for patient survival of 1,477 mL/min. Perioperative variables, including coagulation profiles, were compared between high and low postoperative PVF groups...

OBJECTIVES: To demonstrate the superiority of total psoas volume (TPV) over total psoas area (TPA) in terms of predicting postoperative complications in living-donor liver transplantation (LDLT). METHODS: TPA and TPV were assessed in 32 recipients who underwent computed tomography (CT) before LDLT. TPA was measured using an axial CT image at the level of the upper margin of the 4th lumbar vertebral body. TPV was calculated using all the CT images from the muscle origin through the level of pubic symphysis...

AIM: Indocyanine green (ICG)-fluorescence imaging is useful for detecting hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) during surgery, but its accuracy has not been compared to that of multi-detector row computed tomography (MDCT) with liver explant correlation. The aim of present study was to clarify the precise diagnostic accuracy of ICG-fluorescence imaging for detecting HCC in a whole explant liver survey. METHODS: Thirty-three patients with end-stage liver disease (mean age: 53 years) were prospectively enrolled in the present study...

Living-donor liver transplant for hepatocellular carcinoma located on hepatocaval confluence or in contact with the inferior vena cava is technically challenging, and candidates for this kind of procedure should be carefully selected. It is difficult to rule out major vascular invasion except after hepatectomy and histologic examination; in addition, the possible dissemination of cancer cells during recipient hepatectomy is a considerable risk. Herein, we report the first case in Saudi Arabia of right lobe living-donor liver transplant combined with inferior vena cava reconstruction using cryopreserved iliac vein graft after en bloc resection of the liver with part of the diaphragm, anterior wall of retrohepatic inferior vena cava, and a 5-cm hepatocellular carcinoma in segment 7...

BACKGROUND/PURPOSE: Dyslipidemia is common in liver transplant recipients. This retrospective study investigates whether donors play a role. METHODS: Prospectively collected data of donors and recipients of deceased-donor liver transplantation (DDLT) and living-donor liver transplantation (LDLT) were reviewed. Total cholesterol, triglyceride, low-density lipoprotein, high-density lipoprotein (HDL) and fasting glucose were compared between groups. HDL ≥1.6 mmol/L at 2 years after transplant was considered the marker of a favorable post-transplant lipid profile in recipients...

BACKGROUND: Primary hepatic angiosarcoma is a non-epithelial malignancy derived from sinusoidal endothelial cells, accounting for approximately 1.8% of primary hepatic malignancies. Diagnosis of primary hepatic angiosarcoma is complicated by difficulties in the qualitative radiological assessment of these tumors. Prognosis is very poor due to local recurrence and distant metastasis after liver resection or liver transplantation (LT). CASE PRESENTATION: This case report describes two patients with primary hepatic angiosarcoma who were diagnosed by histopathological examination of the explanted liver after LT...
