Juan Pablo Reig Mezquida, MD, Alilis Fontana Bellorín, MD, Alberto Garcia Ortega, MD and Gabriel Anguera de Francisco, MD

Article Type: Case Report | First Published: May 18, 2020

The clinical course of Coronavirus disease 2019 (covid-19) in lung transplant recipients remains unknown. We present the fatal clinical course of a 63-year-old double lung transplant recipient with severe Covid-19 pneumonia. She had stable graft function before Covid-19 infection. Despite all the supportive care and treatment graft injury progressed, causing patient death. Therefore, the prognosis in lung transplant recipients with Covid-19 infection is not optimistic....

Article Type: Case Report | First Published: April 15, 2020

In situ right and left lobe cadaveric split liver transplantation for two adult recipients is a challenging and infrequently performed procedure to increase the liver donor pool. It should be considered for small sized adult recipients who do not have living donors and coming from regions with few donors. In situ split gives the additional advantage of reduced cold ischemia time, better delineation of hilar structures during warm dissection, improved assessment of viability of liver lobes, reduc...

Unavailability of deceased donors in the east has led to a rise in the popularity of living donor liver transplantation (LDLT). Preventing postoperative complications is a major concern in LDLT’s. There are reports of fatal pulmonary embolism which has happened in Living Donors. Moreover, a study examining thromboelastogram (TEG) patterns in 10 liver donors in 2004 showed a significant development of hypercoagulability in 6 patients. We attempted to analyze the coagulation status of living don...

Article Type: Research Article | First Published: April 11, 2020

Single lung transplantation is a valuable treatment option for end stage lung disease cases of which bilateral lung transplantation is not necessarily indicated. The main disadvantage of single lung transplantation is complications related to the native lung. The most common complications are infection and malignancy which tend to behave aggressively and often require surgical intervention. Safety and feasibility of surgery in lung transplant recipients has been shown in several case reports, ho...

Is Pregnancy Safe for Kidney Transplant Recipients With Chronic Hepatitis C Virus (HCV) İnfection? An Updated Review

Ethem Unal, Abdullah Yildiz, Sema Yuksekdag, Aysun Firat and Nevin Yilmaz

Article Type: Mini Review | First Published: March 19, 2020

Ovarian function with regular menstrual cycles is usually restored in women of reproductive age after solid organ transplantation. The number of pregnancies reported in these patients increases gradually. Pregnancy is always considered high risk, and if not properly planned, may lead to serious complications. The best for the patient is to conceive in a period of good general health and good stable graft function, after appropriate preparation. However, hepatitis C virus (HCV) infection will be ...

A 52-year-old male patient had been undergone right lobe LT from a living donor. He had diabetes mellitus and underwent serial erythrocyte and thrombocyte transfusions, the score of models for end-stage liver disease (MELD) was 23. On the 14th day, biliary leakage and infected bilioma determined in multislice abdominal tomography. On the 25th day, sepsis symptoms such as fever, tachycardia and hypotension developed. Leukocytosis, elevated C-reactive protein (CRP) and procalcitonin were also pres...

Induction antibody immunosuppressive protocols in children have been extrapolated from experience gained primarily from kidney transplantation in adults and are center- specific. There is a paucity of information on the clinical and immunological effects of these protocols in children. Retrospective chart review was performed in all pediatric kidney transplant recipients less than 21 years of age at the Miami Transplant Institute during the period of January 2012 to June 2015. Relevant demograph...
