Anaesthetic implications and transfusion practices in ABO incompatible living donor liver transplantation: Case series
Sindhu Balakrishnan, Lakshmi Kumar, Divya Daniel, Sudhindran SurendranIndian Journal of Anaesthesia 2021 65(4):281-285 ABO incompatible liver transplants (ABOi LT) are considered as a life-saving option when compatible donor grafts are unavailable. Fourteen adults (right lobe graft) and three children (left lateral segment/lobe) who underwent ABOi LT from living donors between 2011 and 20 period were analysed for transfusions and desensitisation protocols. All recipients received packed red blood cells (PRBC) of their own group. AB plasma that does not contain any antibody was transfused in eight patients and donor group ...

Hypercoagulability on thromboelastography after living donor hepatectomy & #8212;The true side of the coin
Conclusion: Hypercoagulability after donor hepatectomy is common. TEG showed hypercoagulability and did not show any hypocoagulability as suggested by the CCT. In patients undergoing donor hepatectomy, CCT may not reflect the actual changes incoagulation status and tests such as TEG should be performed to know the correct nature of changes in coagulation following donor hepatectomy.

Ultrasound-guided assessment of gastric residual volume in patients receiving three types of clear fluids: A randomised blinded study
Conclusion: Patients receiving 200 mL of water, clear apple juice or apple-flavoured ORS had comparable GRV after 2 h. There was poor correlation and agreement between GRV measurements of different assessors, indicating that more training may be required for anaesthesiologists to attain proficiency in the quantitative assessment of GRV.
