BACKGROUND: Increased cold ischemia time in cadaveric kidney transplants has been associated with a high rate of delayed graft function (DGF), and even with graft survival. Kidney transplantation using in-house donors reduces cold preservation time. The purpose of this study was to compare the clinical outcomes after transplantation in house and externally. METHODS: We retrospectively reviewed the medical records of donors and recipients of 135 deceased-donor kidney transplantations performed in our center from March 2009 to March 2016...

Although patient survival is significantly improved by kidney transplantation (KT) in comparison with dialysis, it remains significantly lower than that observed in the general population. Graft function is one of the major determinants of patient survival after KT. Mineralocorticoid receptor antagonists (MRAs) could be of particular interest in this population to improve graft function and treat or prevent cardiovascular (CV) complications. In KT, ischaemia/reperfusion injury is a major factor involved in delayed graft function, which is often associated with inferior long-term graft survival...

BACKGROUND: Renal transplantation represents the treatment of choice of end-stage kidney disease. Delayed graft function (DGF) remains the most frequent complication after this procedure, reaching more than 30%. Its prevention is essential as it impedes early- and long-term prognosis of transplantation. Numerous pharmacological interventions aiming to prevent ischemia-reperfusion injuries failed to reduce the rate of DGF. We hypothesize that cyclosporine as an early preconditioning procedure in donors would be associated with decreased DGF...

The aim of this study was to determine the effect of donor body mass index (BMI) on deceased-donor kidney transplant outcomes. Data were collected from the UK Transplant Registry for all deceased-donor kidney transplant recipients between January 2003 and January 2015. Univariable and multivariable analyses were undertaken to assess the impact of donor BMI on a range of outcomes. Donor BMI (kg/m2 ) was stratified as <18.5 (n=380), 18.5-25.0 (n=6890), 25.1-30.0 (n=6669), 30.1-35.0 (n=2503) and >35.0 (n=1148)...

Kidney allograft from elderly donors bear higher peri- and posttransplant risks, such as delayed graft function with or without need for dialysis, lower allograft function at the early phase and shorter allograft survival. In contrast, allografts from younger donors perform better - in young and old recipients. Thus, in a perfect world without organ shortage, allograft from younger donors would be preferred irrespective of the recipient's age. So far, the maths is simple.

BACKGROUND: Graft preservation continues to be one of the main pillars of pancreas transplantation (PT). Surgical complications, possibly caused or facilitated by organ damage during preservation, continue to occur more frequently after PT than for any other abdominal organ. During the past few years, the Georges Lopez Institute preservation solution IGL-1 has been introduced with satisfactory results for the perfusion and cold storage of abdominal grafts such as kidney and liver. METHODS: Aspects related to 47 PTs with the use of IGL-1 as the only preservation solution performed from January 2012 to September 2017 at Hospital Santa Isabel, Blumenau, Brazil, were retrospectively analyzed...

Renal transplant scintigraphy, performed in a 23-year-old man who had renal graft from a living donor, showed nearly normal perfusion and moderately low function of the graft. But the margins of the graft were blurred, and it was interestingly appearing enlarged late in the study. Ultrasound demonstrated a hypoechoic rim surrounding the whole kidney. Biopsy revealed necrosis besides normal cortical tissue. Necrosis was thought to be limited to the subcapsular cortical area. It should be considered that these scintigraphic findings could be due to greatly reduced and delayed perfusion of edematous subcapsular necrotic area of the graft even in normal perfusion images...

INTRODUCTION: The new Kidney Allocation System (KAS) prioritizes patients based on date of dialysis initiation or wait-listing, whichever is earlier. We hypothesized that this change would increase transplant rates for patients with prolonged pre-transplant dialysis times (DT) and aimed to assess the impact of prolonged DT on post-transplant outcomes. METHODS: We used United Network for Organ Sharing registry data to assess outcomes for patients added to the renal transplant waitlist from Jan 1 1998 - Dec 31 2010 and patients transplanted from Jan 1 1998 - Dec 3 2012...

BACKGROUND: Kidneys from non-white donors have inferior outcomes, but it is unclear if ethnicity matching between donors and recipients achieves better post kidney transplant outcomes. METHODS: We undertook a retrospective, population cohort study utilising UK Transplant Registry data. The cohort comprised adult, kidney-alone, transplant recipients receiving their first kidney transplant between 2003-2015, with data censored at 1st October 2016. We included 27,970 recipients stratified into white (n = 23,215), black (n = 1,679) and south Asian (n = 3,076) ethnicity, with median post-transplant follow-up of 1,676 days (IQR 716-2,869 days)...

Introduction: Kidney ischemia-reperfusion (I/R) injury is the main cause of delayed graft function in solid organ transplantation. Sonchus oleraceus is a plant with well-known antioxidant and anti-inflammatory activities; however, its effects on renal I/R are unknown. Objective: To evaluate whether S. oleraceus extract (S.O.e.) has nephroprotective activity in an I/R model in Wistar rats. Materials and Methods: Animal groups ( n = 6): sham, I/R (45 min/15 h), S...

Post-transplantation diabetes mellitus (PTDM) may severely impact both short- and long-term outcomes of kidney transplant recipients in terms of graft and patient survival. However, PTDM often goes undiagnosed is underestimated or poorly managed. A diagnosis of PTDM should be delayed until the patient is on stable maintenance doses of immunosuppressive drugs, with stable kidney graft function and in the absence of acute infections. Risk factors for PTDM should be assessed during the pre-transplant evaluation period, in order to reduce the likelihood of developing diabetes...

BACKGROUND Whether slow graft function (SGF) represents an intermediate phenotype between immediate graft function (IGF) and delayed graft function (DGF) in kidney transplant recipients is unknown. MATERIAL AND METHODS In a retrospective cohort analysis of 1,222 kidney transplant recipients, we classified patients as having IGF, SGF, and DGF using two different schemas. SGF was defined as serum creatinine (Cr) ≥3.0 mg/dL by postoperative day 5 in Schema 1, and in Schema 2, SGF was defined as Cr >1.5 mg/dL plus a creatinine reduction ratio <20% between postoperative days 1 and 3...

BACKGROUND: Surgical intervention was once the mainstay of treatment for Buruli ulcer disease, a neglected tropical disease caused by Mycobacterium ulcerans. Since the introduction of streptomycin and rifampicin for 8 weeks as standard care, surgery has persisted as an adjunct therapy, but its role is uncertain. We investigated the effect of delaying the decision to operate to 14 weeks on rates of healing without surgery. METHODS: In this randomised controlled trial, we enrolled patients aged 3 years or older with confirmed disease at one hospital in Lalo, Benin...

Ischemia-reperfusion injury during kidney transplantation predisposes to delayed graft function, rejection, and premature graft failure. Exacerbation of tissue damage and alloimmune responses may be explained by necroinflammation: an autoamplification loop of cell death and inflammation, which is mediated by the release of damage-associated molecular patterns (e.g. HMGB1) from necrotic cells that activate both innate and adaptive immune pathways. Kidney Injury Molecule-1 (KIM-1) is a phosphatidylserine receptor that is upregulated on injured proximal tubular epithelial cells and enables them to clear apoptotic and necrotic cells...

BACKGROUND: Ischaemia-reperfusion injury is inevitable during renal transplantation and can lead to delayed graft function and primary non-function. Preconditioning, reconditioning and postconditioning with argon and xenon protects against renal ischaemia-reperfusion injury in rodent models. The hypothesis that postconditioning with argon or xenon inhalation would improve graft function in a porcine renal autotransplant model was tested. METHODS: Pigs (n = 6 per group) underwent left nephrectomy after 60 min of warm ischaemia (renal artery and vein clamping)...

REVIEW
Gerhard R Situmorang, Neil S Sheerin
The increasing use of extended criteria organs to meet the demand for kidney transplantation raises an important question of how the severity of early ischaemic injury influences long-term outcomes. Significant acute ischaemic kidney injury is associated with delayed graft function, increased immune-associated events and, ultimately, earlier deterioration of graft function. A comprehensive understanding of immediate molecular events that ensue post-ischaemia and their potential long-term consequences are key to the discovery of novel therapeutic targets...

Hypothermic machine perfusion (HPM) grants a better postoperative outcome in transplantation of organs procured from extended criteria donors (ECDs) and donors after cardiac death (DCD). So far, the only available parameter for outcome prediction concerning those organs is pretransplant biopsy score. The aim of this study is to evaluate whether renal resistance (RR) trend during HPM may be used as a predictive marker for post-transplantation outcome. From December 2015 to present, HMP has been systematically applied to all organs from ECDs and DCD...
