We present the case of a male diagnosed with a giant hepatic artery aneurysm, which first presented with pain and hemorrhage due to a partial rupture of the aneurysm. After discarding treatment with a stent or surgery due to the wide extension, we chose to embolize the hepatic artery with coils. However, the progress was unfavorable after the procedure, with the appearance of liver failure that was resolved by an urgent liver transplantation. Giant hepatic artery pseudoaneurysms are an infrequent entity and their management is a great challenge. The diagnosis is usually delayed due to non-specific clinical signs and the li...
CONCLUSION: Patients with certain psychosocial comorbidities had worse outcomes following liver transplantation. Further prospective and multi-center studies are warranted to properly determine guidelines for liver transplantation regarding this high-risk population. PMID: 31528246 [PubMed]
CONCLUSION: Autogenous bone ring procedure seemed to confer additional benefits over autologous growth factor-enriched bone graft when various parameters were compared. The sites augmented with autogenous bone ring at the end of the study period showed a sufficient gain in bone height and quality for implant placement.

A 50-year-old woman underwent living-related kidney transplant 7 years ago. She developed an episode of acute T-cell –mediated rejection 2 years ago, which was treated with steroids. Her serum creatinine recently increased to 9 mg/dl after she stopped taking her immunosuppressive medications and a biopsy was performed.
The ISN and Kidney International recently introduced the ISN-KI Editorial Fellowship, which is designed specifically for early career researchers working within the field of nephrology, dialysis, and kidney transplantation. The purpose of this Fellowship is to provide training opportunities for the review and critical evaluation of manuscripts and the management of editorial responsibilities within the context of a high-impact nephrology journal. We are delighted and proud to announce the 2 winners of our 2019 Fellowships.
The term hemolytic uremic syndrome (HUS) encompasses 3 different entities: typical HUS caused by a shiga toxin –producing Escherichia coli, primary atypical HUS (aHUS) resulting from the dysregulation of the complement alternative pathway, and secondary HUS caused by a variety of etiologies whose common characteristic is to induce diffuse endothelial damage leading to thrombotic microangiopathy (TMA). As s hown in Supplementary Table S1, the most common causes of secondary HUS are drugs, infections, autoimmune diseases, malignancies, and hematopoietic stem cell transplantation.
In conclusion, combined treatment of SS and PADM effectively promoted apoptosis in gastric cancer xenografts via the mitochondrial apoptosis pathway. PMID: 31531348 [PubMed - in process]
