BACKGROUND: Calcineurin inhibitors (CNI) have significantly improved patient and graft survival in pediatric liver transplantation (pLT). However, CNI toxicity leads to significant morbidity. Moreover, CNIs cannot prevent long-term allograft injury. Mesenchymal stem (stromal) cells (MSC) have potent immunomodulatory properties, which may promote allograft tolerance and ameliorate toxicity of high-dose CNI. The MYSTEP1 trial aims to investigate safety and feasibility of donor-derived MSCs in pLT...

Although rare, ALF caused by disseminated HSV infection is associated with high mortality in the neonatal population. This condition is often diagnosed relatively late due to the absence of specific signs. We present a case involving a neonate with ALF submitted to living donor liver transplantation without a prior diagnosis. The patient had no skin or mucosal lesions, and IgM serology was negative for HSV-1 and HSV-2. Immunohistochemical staining of the liver explant was positive for herpes virus infection, and the patient subsequently received antiviral drug treatment, with a good outcome...

BACKGROUND: Egypt has the highest prevalence of the world hepatitis C virus (HCV) load. Hence, the problem of end-stage liver disease (ESLD) is considered a huge burden on the community. Living donor liver transplantation (LDLT) is the only source of donation in Egypt till now. Survival rates had shown significant improvement in the past decades. This study provides analysis of the mortality rates and possible predictors of mortality following LDLT. It also aids in developing a practical and easy-to-apply risk index for prediction of early mortality...

Insufficient is the evidence for safe use of elderly donors in adult-to-adult living donor liver transplantation (LDLT). The aim of this study was to evaluate the outcomes of right lobe LDLT by donor age (≥55 vs. <55 years). All living donors who underwent right hepatectomy at the authors' institution between March 2008 and December 2015 were divided into 2 groups: group A with an age ≥ 55 and group B with an age < 55. The selection criteria for elderly donor were preservation of middle hepatic vein, remnant liver volume ≥30%, and no or mild fatty liver...

BACKGROUND: Accurate preoperative estimation of graft weight is essential for improving outcomes in living donor liver transplantation. METHODS: This retrospective study sought to identify factors associated with graft weight overestimation. From April 2006 to August 2015, 340 living donors were assigned to no-overestimate (n = 284) or overestimate (n = 56) groups. We defined graft weight overestimation as a discrepancy ≥15% between estimated graft volume and actual graft weight...

REVIEW
Nao Nishimura, Mureo Kasahara, Kenji Ishikura, Satoshi Nakagawa
Brain-dead donor organ transplantation has been available to children in Japan since the 2010 revision of the Organ Transplant Law. Of the 50-60 brain-dead donor organ transplants performed annually in Japan, however, very few (0-4 per year) are performed in children. Again, while those receiving liver, heart, and kidney transplants are reported to fare better than their counterparts in the rest of the world, organ shortage is becoming a matter of great concern. Very few organs become available from brain-dead donors or are transplanted to adults if made available at all, with some children dying while on the brain-dead organ waiting list...

Hepatic hemangioma represents the most common benign primary hepatic neoplasm. Although most such tumors are small and asymptomatic, giant hepatic hemangioma is frequently symptomatic, and requires intervention. Moreover, diffuse multiple hepatic hemangiomatosis occupying almost the entire liver is extremely rare in adults, and the optimal management for this condition is unclear. We report a case of a rapidly growing, symptomatic giant hepatic hemangioma with diffuse hepatic hemangiomatosis in a 50-year-old female patient who was treated by living-donor liver transplantation...

BACKGROUND: Minimally invasive surgery has been validated to be a new standard in living donor hepatectomy for adult-to-pediatric transplantation with less morbidity [1]. Laparoscopic donor hepatectomy can reduce the major concerns about pain and morbidity associated with open surgery and a slow return to daily activities of donors [2]. Herein, we present one case of totally laparoscopic living donor left hepatectomy including the middle hepatic vein (MHV). DONOR AND METHOD: A 37-year-old mother volunteered to donate to her 3-year-old son with biliary atresia (PELD score 7)...

BACKGROUND: Given the expected increase in the number of elderly recipients, details regarding how clinical factors influence the outcome in living donor liver transplantation (LDLT) for the elderly remain unclear. We examined the survival outcomes according to the results of donor age-based and graft volume-based analyses and assessed the impact of prognostic factors on the survival after LDLT for elderly recipients. METHODS: The 198 adult recipients were classified into 2 groups: an elderly group (n = 70, E group; ≥ 60 years of age) and a younger group (n = 128, Y group; <60 years of age)...

While regional organ availability dominates discussions of distribution policy, community-level disparities remain poorly understood. We studied micro-geographic determinants of survival risk and their distribution across Donor Service Areas (DSAs). Scientific Registry of Transplant Recipients records for all adults waitlisted for liver transplantation 2002-2014 were reviewed. The primary exposure variables were county-level sociodemographic risk, as measured by the Community Health Score, a previously-validated composite index local health conditions, and distance to listing transplant center...

BACKGROUND: As a quality assessment tool, failure to rescue (FTR) has been employed in various surgical specialties. However, its role in liver transplantation has only recently been explored. To the best of our knowledge, role of FTR in living donor liver transplant (LDLT) has not been assessed previously. The objective of the current study was to determine failure to rescue (FTR) rate and it's predictors in an LDLT center. MATERIALS AND METHODS: We reviewed a prospectively maintained database of patients who underwent LDLT at our center between 2012 and 2016...

Background De novo hepatitis B infection (DNHB) may occur in recipients who do not receive prophylaxis after liver transplantation (LT) with anti-HBc(+) donor grafts. Active immunization has been shown to prevent DNHB in pediatric recipients. Our aim is to investigate the efficacy of HBV vaccination for preventing DNHB in adult living donor LT (LDLT). Patients and Methods 71 adult HBsAg(-) LDLT patients who received anti-HBc(+) grafts from 2000 to 2010 were enrolled into this study. Patients were given HBV vaccinations with the aim of achieving anti-HBs >1000 IU/L pre-transplant and >100 IU/L post-transplant...

Whether and when recovery beyond the need for transplant may occur in patients listed for decompensation remains unclear. This study aimed to investigate the characteristics of patients delisted following recompensation. Seventy-seven patients who were listed between 2005 and 2015 for decompensation, but later delisted following recompensation were included. Alcohol-related liver disease (ALD) was the underlying etiology in the majority (n=47, 61%). Listing characteristics of these patients were compared with those of decompensated ALD patients who either underwent deceased donor liver transplantation or died on the waiting list...

EDITORIAL
J A Anesi, D S Goldberg
The most significant issue facing solid organ transplantation (SOT) is the limited supply of donor organs. Expansion of the donor pool is needed to save more lives through SOT. Deceased donors with positive hepatitis C (HCV) serologic testing have been used inconsistently in the past due to concern for worse recipient outcomes and an inability to easily treat HCV in non-liver recipients (1).
