Risk Factors for Developing BK Virus-Associated Nephropathy: A Single-Center Retrospective Cohort Study of Kidney Transplant Recipients
The objective of this study was to estimate the incidence of BKVAN and to analyze whether enhanced induction is associated with an increased risk of BKVAN, possibly justifying more intensive surveillance. MATERIAL AND METHODS This was a single-center retrospective cohort study. All patients who underwent kidney transplantation or simultaneous pancreas and kidney transplantation at the Uppsala University Hospital in Sweden between 2005 and 2014 were included, a period when BKV screening was not yet implemented. The effect of enhanced induction, defined as treatment with thymoglobulin, rituximab, and/or eculizumab, often in ...

Reconstruction of Separated Intrahepatic Ducts Using the Cystic and Common Hepatic Ducts in Right-Lobe Living-Donor Liver Transplantation: Experiences of Surgical Techniques, Biliary Complications, and Outcomes in a Single Institution
In this study, 740 patients underwent right-lobe living-donor liver transplantation; 56 of them were documented as dual-ductal anastomoses. We analyzed recipient and donor characteristics, surgical procedures, appearance of biliary complications, corresponding interventions, and long-term biliary outcomes. RESULTS Cystic and common hepatic ducts were utilized in 56 cases of dual-ductal biliary reconstruction, which we categorized into 2 types: A (78.6%), in which the right anterior intrahepatic duct was anastomosed to the common hepatic duct and the right posterior intrahepatic duct to the cystic duct; and B (21.4%), which...

Comparison of Coronary Artery Calcium Scoring with Dobutamine Stress Echo for Detection of Coronary Artery Disease Before Liver Transplantation
Ann Transplant. 2021 Dec 22;26:e934163. doi: 10.12659/AOT.934163.ABSTRACTBACKGROUND Dobutamine stress echocardiography (DSE) is commonly used for cardiovascular assessment before orthotopic liver transplantation (OLT). The coronary artery calcium score (CACS) is a useful screening tool for coronary artery disease (CAD). We aimed to compare the sensitivity and specificity of DSE and CACS for CAD in OLT candidates. MATERIAL AND METHODS A total of 265 of the 1589 patients who underwent OLT at our center between 2008 and 2019 had preoperative coronary angiography (CAG). Of these, 173 had DSE and 133 had a CT scan suitable for ...

Solid-Phase C1q/C3d Fixing Readouts Correlate with High Median Fluorescence Intensity (MFI) De Novo Donor-Specific HLA Antibodies and C4d ⁺ Antibody-Mediated Rejection in Kidney Transplant Recipients
CONCLUSIONS C1q⁺/C3d⁺ dnDSA were associated with C4d⁺ AMR and high-IgG MFI. Our data call into question the predictive utility of C1q/C3d-binding assays in identifying KTx recipients at risk of allograft failure. In conclusion, IgG MFI is sufficient for clinical management, and the C1q/C3d-assays with added cost do not provide any additional information.PMID:34848674 | DOI:10.12659/AOT.934175 (Source: Annals of Transplantation)

Validation of Accuracy of Non-Invasive Imaging Methods (Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) Fat Fraction Calculation and Computed Tomography (CT) Liver Attenuation Index) for Hepatic Graft Fat Quantification in Living Liver Transplant Donors
CONCLUSIONS MRI-based fat quantification calculation displayed near-perfect negative predictive values and very high diagnostic accuracy, suggesting that it can obviate the need for biopsy in patients with graft fat percentage
