A preventable cause of transplant hydroureteronephrosis: inguinal herniation of the transplant ureter. Case report and review of the literature.
Conclusion Inguinal herniation of the transplant ureter leading to ureteral obstruction is a rare, probably underreported, cause graft of dysfunction. Therefore, we advocate elective repair of inguinal or incisional hernias in renal transplant recipients. PMID: 31690216 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

AlmousaAbstractUreteral injury is common complication that need comprehensive understanding of ureteral injury management from minimal invasive intervention to ureteral reimplant in both early and late presentation. However, ureteral injury in duplex system rarely reported in literature. Here we are sharing our techniques and challenging in a patient who had a duplex ureteral injury with late presentation underwent robot assisted ureteral reimplantation.
This article aimed to investigate effects of exosomes secreted from miRNA-29b-modified bone marrow mesenchymal stem cells (BMSCs) on SCI. Exosomes were extracted from BMSCs transfected with miRNA-29b or negative control (miR NC). SCI rats were injected intravenously with exosomes (control exosomes, miRNA-29b exosomes) and BMSCs (miR NC, miRNA-29b) through the tail vein. The expression of miRNA-29b in spinal cord tissues of SCI rats was detected by qRT-PCR. The hind limb motor function was evaluated by Basso Beattie Bresnahan (BBB) score. The histopathological damage and neuronal regeneration in spinal cord tissues was obse...
ConclusionsPregnancy after liver transplantation has a favorable outcome with a multidisciplinary team approach. There is a physiological reduction of tacrolimus trough levels during pregnancy for which dose augmentation is not usually required.

Conclusion: Tacrolimus, an immunosuppressant used to prevent rejection in organ transplant, could lead to VS volume shrinkage and hearing improvement. Tacrolimus could be an interesting new therapeutic weapon, especially for VS in Neurofibromatosis type 2.
