Pulmonary artery twisting during lung transplantation.
Pulmonary artery twisting during lung transplantation. Proc (Bayl Univ Med Cent). 2018 Jan;31(1):53-55 Authors: Lichliter A, Oros J, Laurie L Abstract To the radiologist, complications of lung transplant are believed to occur along a time continuum, which is key given the nonspecific clinical and imaging findings. Pulmonary artery twisting in the immediate and early postoperative period is a known complication of transplantation, but receives relatively little attention. Early recognition is paramount due to the high morbidity and mortality of such a complication. This case highlights some imaging manifestations of the pulmonary artery. PMID: 29686553 [PubMed]

LUNG TRANSPLANTATION, either single or bilateral, involves recipient pneumonectomy followed by implantation and reperfusion of the donor lung. Contemporary approaches to lung transplantation require lung isolation to assist recipient pneumonectomy and donor lung implantation.1 Single-lung transplantation requires interruption of ventilation to the side of allograft transplantation, whereas bilateral lung transplantation involves sequential one-lung ventilation (OLV) when performed without mechanical circulatory support.

Contributor : Jessica ChangSeries Type : Expression profiling by arrayOrganism : Homo sapiensWe previously developed molecular assessment systems for lung transplant transbronchial biopsies (TBBs) with high surfactant and bronchial mucosal biopsies (3BMBs). Unsupervised machine learning identified T cell-mediated rejection (TCMR) based on expression of validated rejection-associated transcripts (RATs). The relationship to patient outcomes is not known. We aimed to establish whether molecular TCMR in TBBs and 3BMBs has implications for future graft loss. Molecular TCMR scores assigned in all TBBs or high surfactant TBBs agr...
Conclusion: Combination of neoadjuvant therapy and LT is an effective paradigm in treatment of multisystem LCH with severe liver dysfunction. With advances in chemotherapy regimen for multisystem LCH and LT surgery, perspectives on prognosis for LCH children are promising.
AbstractWhile technical considerations in lung transplantation for Kartagener syndrome have been discussed, little information is available about the postoperative morphological changes of the grafted lungs. Herein, we discuss both the technical aspects and postoperative morphological adaptation of the grafted lungs in a case of Kartagener syndrome. A 46-year-old male patient with Kartagener syndrome underwent bilateral cadaveric lung transplantation. The right arterial anastomosis for transplantation of the size-matched grafts required technical elaboration. After the transplantation, we found a free space in the cardiac ...
