Effects of Blood Transfusion on Hepatic Ischemia-Reperfusion Injury-Induced Renal Tubular Injury.

CONCLUSIONS: Preischemic transfusion potentiated acute tubular injury without triggering renal inflammatory responses. Exacerbation of hepatic injury may induce acute tubular injury via renal oxidant stress. PMID: 31615382 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Robert Chelsea turned down the first face he was offered. It was a fine face, one that could have taken him off the transplant waiting list after just a couple months. But Chelsea—severely disfigured after a catastrophic car accident five years earlier—was in no hurry. He’d gotten used to tilting his head back so food and water wouldn’t fall out of his nearly lipless mouth. He knew how to respond compassionately to children who stared in shock and fear. The face, offered in May 2018, had belonged to a man with skin that was much fairer than what remained of Chelsea’s—so light that Chelse...

AbstractSafe blood transfusion is the primary need of all the health care delivery system. Though with the advances of transfusion medicine, the incidences of transfusion risk is gradually reduced, but the adverse transfusion reaction (ATR) of non hemolytic type still prevails. The purpose of this study was to estimate the incidence and pattern of transfusion-related adverse events at our centre. The present retrospective observational study was conducted in the Department of Transfusion Medicine from April 2011 to April 2018, at a multi-organ transplant centre in South India. All the Adverse transfusion reactions were inv...

CONCLUSION: Our results demonstrated that the total cost of LTx is closely related to liver disease severity scores and the development of complications.RESUMO CONTEXTO: O transplante hep ático (TxH) é o principal e definitivo tratamento de casos agudos ou crônicos de doenças hepáticas avançadas ou terminais. Poucos estudos têm avaliado o custo real do TxH categorizado por setores hospitalares. OBJETIVO: Avaliar o custo do TxH categorizado por especialidade da unidade em um centro de referência na região sul do Brasil. MÉTODOS: Analisamos retrospectivamente...

Objective: The aim of this study was to compare outcomes between living donor liver transplant (LDLT) and deceased donor liver transplant (DDLT) at a single center to demonstrate the advantages of LDLT and provide justification for the increased utilization and application of this procedure. Summary of Background Data: LDLT comprises a very small percentage of all liver transplants performed in the United States, this despite its advantages and a shortage of the availability of deceased donor organs. Methods: A retrospective review of all adult LDLT (n = 245) and DDLT (n = 592) performed at a single center over 10 ...

Conclusions: This study identified risk factors associated with common perioperative complications of liver transplantation. These factors may assist practitioners in risk stratification and may form the basis for further investigations of potential interventions to mitigate these risks.

Conclusions: This case suggests that even when the latest RBC antibody screen is negative after immunosuppression, clinicians should consider the possibility of the prior positive result. Emphasizing those results by the system would be supportive for safer patient management. PMID: 31304695 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

CONCLUSIONS Rapid change in the sodium level might be caused by large amounts of blood transfusion products. This leads to a diminished short-term survival, as well as a higher rate of neurological complications. PMID: 31308357 [PubMed - in process]
