Summary: Incisional hernia often complicates kidney transplant. However, there are few reports showing pitfalls after the repair of incisional hernia following living-donor kidney transplant. A 55-year-old man underwent living-donor kidney transplant from his wife at the Department of Urology at the authors’ hospital. He noticed abdominal distension 6 months postoperatively and was diagnosed with incisional hernia by computed tomography (CT) imaging. Clinical examination revealed the extensive distension of the right abdomen; noncontrast abdominal CT showed transverse colon, descending colon, and mesenteric prolapse ...

We present contrasting experiences with a gentleman who underwent transplantation for Crohn's disease and his retransplantation with the addition of post-operative anterior Quadratus Lumborum (QL) block. After the index procedure, he had significant pain and discomfort. The addition of the QL block lead to substantial improvement in both subjective and objective endpoints. While each case is different, a QL block can be a useful adjunct to achieve pain control, decrease opioid requirements, and potentially facilitate early extubation.

Intrathecal autologous bone marrow (ABM) total nucleated cells transplantation (TNCT) has been reported to be a promising treatment for cerebral palsy (CP) and autistic disorders (AD). Children with CP and AD, are expected to be patients with difficult approach when doing venipuncture or taking them to the operating room. Considering pain and the nature of the procedures, bone marrow collection (BMC) and intrathecal procedures (ITP) must be performed under sedation. For short procedures, sevoflurane can be administrated using a face mask and, propofol, a typical intravenous agent is used for the induction of general anesth...

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...

A 72-year-old male cardiac transplant patient presented after sustaining facial and extremity trauma caused by a pit bull dog attack. The case was further complicated by the duration of the surgery, bleeding, infection risk, intraoperative hypothermia, immunosuppression, and the risk of sepsis. His anesthetic management required careful coordination with his transplant team. We also sought the expertise of the in-house pharmacist to obtain the appropriate administration strategies for the patient's immunosuppressant agents.

(NEW YORK) — Scientists restored some activity within the brains of pigs that had been slaughtered hours before, raising hopes for some medical advances and questions about the definition of death. The brains could not think or sense anything, researchers stressed. By medical standards “this is not a living brain,” said Nenad Sestan of the Yale School of Medicine, one of the researchers reporting the results Wednesday in the journal Nature. But the work revealed a surprising degree of resilience among cells within a brain that has lost its supply of blood and oxygen, he said. “Cell death in the brai...
