Authors: Samy KP, Butler JR, Li P, Cooper DKC, Ekser B Abstract Pig-to-human xenotransplantation offers a potential bridge to the growing disparity between patients with end-stage organ failure and graft availability. Early studies attempting to overcome cross-species barriers demonstrated robust humoral immune responses to discordant xenoantigens. Recent advances have led to highly efficient and targeted genomic editing, drastically altering the playing field towards rapid production of less immunogenic porcine tissues and even the discussion of human xenotransplantation trials. However, as these humoral immune ba...

CONCLUSION: The retroperitoneal approach for RART permits the kidney to be cooled and a direct access to the iliac vessels and bladder. This initial series with more than a year of post-monitoring RART shows promising results despite some initial technical difficulties. The procedure can still be improved and hoped to see an improvement in the results. A comparison to the results of the conventional route is necessary before diffusing the robot-assisted technique.

CONCLUSION: There appears to be no specific concern related to liver transplant patients undergoing PD. Peritonitis and mortality rates were no different from other solid organ recipients or even from the general PD population. The hepatic graft was never threatened, even during peritonitis. Therefore, these patients should not be denied the option of PD. PMID: 29162680 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

We report the successful use of ceftolozane/tazobactam (C/T) to treat a pulmonary exacerbation in a 35 year old female, post lung transplant, with cystic fibrosis (CF), malnutrition, chronic kidney disease, and multi-drug resistant Pseudomonas aeruginosa infection (MDR PSA). Given the complexity of the clinical profile, we measured drug levels of C/T during treatment of her current exacerbation to determine pharmacokinetics. The patient achieved an estimated ceftolozane peak of 174.1 μg/mL and trough of 9.2 μg/mL. Serum half-life was found to be slightly shorter than previously reported in normal subjects, (2.3 hr. v...

Loop diuretics (LD) attenuate ischemic injury in nephrons. They are thought to decrease delayed graft function (DGF) during kidney transplantation (KT). This review aimed to summarize the current evidence for the perioperative use of LD during KT.
