First Live Donor Nephrectomy with Abdominal Tortuous Aorta and Two Renal Arteries : A Renal Transplantation Case Report

Publication date: Available online 11 December 2019Source: Urology Case ReportsAuthor(s): Mesut Demir, Cumhur Yesildal, Abdullah Hizir Yavuzsan, Sinan Levent Kirecci, Ali Ihsan DokucuAbstract46-year-old wife (donor) and 52-year-old husband (recipient) admitted to our clinic for kidney transplantation. CT angiography of the donor showed us there were bilateral renal double artery and a tortuous aorta that is deviated to the left side. The main artery cannot be reached by laparoscopy because of the upper level of renal artery and deviation of the aorta and an open conversion was performed. Presence of tortuous aorta with multiple renal arteries makes laparoscopic donor nephrectomy a challenging procedure even preformed by an experienced surgeon. The possibility of open conversion should always be kept in mind in these cases.

CONCLUSIONS: Idiopathic FSGS recurs post-transplant in one third of cases and is associated with a five-fold higher risk of graft loss. Response to treatment is associated with significantly better outcomes but is achieved in only half of the cases. PMID: 31974287 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

CONCLUSIONS: Our own results and the current literature show that the right-sided donor nephrectomy is a safe procedure with only a slightly increased risk of complications compared to the left side and therefore can be recommended. It is clearly safe for the donor and organ, with an equivalent outcome for the recipient. The results are also dependent on the experience of the surgeon.

Receptor activator of the NFκB ligand system protects renal function during experimental renal ischemia-reperfusion in mice. Transpl Immunol. 2020 Jan 03;:101263 Authors: Nakayama A, Isoyama N, Yamamoto T, Nagata Y, Matsumura M, Fujikawa K, Matsuyama H, Shiraishi K Abstract Renal ischemia-reperfusion (I/R) injury is closely associated with delayed graft function and poor long-term graft survival following transplantation. Various pathophysiologies can cause the deterioration of renal function; however, the immune system plays important roles in promoting and protecting renal tissues. Receptor ac...

CONCLUSIONS: The ucMSC-DKS restores renal function and reduces fibrosis by reducing EMT via the TGF-β/Smad signaling pathway in rats that have undergone STN. It provides an alternative for renal fibrosis treatment. PMID: 31896126 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

CONCLUSIONS: The knowledge of the vascular variations of the kidney is essential for surgeons performing kidney transplantation. It is also essential for urologist and vascular surgeons. Incompatible with the literature, the right kidney has more vascular variations and, one kidney artery is found in the majority of Turkish kidney donor patients.

ConclusionsSequential surgical organization results in the same functional results as simultaneous surgical organization. DGF was higher for LDKT performed sequentially but at 5-year overall survival, graft survival and eGFR were similar between these two types of transplant organizations.

Conclusions. While lymphatic complications, particularly lymphoceles, are not uncommon in renal transplantation, lymphangiectasia is a distinct condition which should be considered in renal transplant patients with ascites, after all other sources have been ruled out.

Conclusions. Transplant physicians should inform potential living kidney donors at risk for APOL1-associated nephropathy about the gene and possibility of genetic testing early in the donor evaluation, well before scheduling the donor nephrectomy. Transplant programs must weigh risks of performing a donor nephrectomy in those with 2 APOL1 renal risk variants (high-risk genotypes), particularly younger individuals. Our program counsels kidney donors with APOL1 high-risk genotypes in the same fashion as with risk genotypes in other nephropathy genes. Because most African American kidney donor candidates lacking hypertensio...

We present our single centre experience in transplanted patients and future candidates for transplantation. Methods: Retrospective analysis from an anonymised database of bilateral nephrectomies for ADPKD patients. Results were reported as median, range, and percentage. Differences between groups were tested using ANOVA and t-test. Surgery was performed between January 2012 and July 2018. Results: Thirty-three patients underwent bilateral native nephrectomy for APKD. 18 had a functioning kidney transplant (transplant group, 55%) while 15 patients were on dialysis (dialysis group, 45%) at the time of surgery; 8 pa...
