PURPOSE To evaluate the safety and efficacy of stereotactic body radiotherapy (SBRT) for the treatment of primary hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC). METHODS AND MATERIALS From 2005 to 2009, 60… Expand
Double knockout pigs deficient in N‐glycolylneuraminic acid and Galactose α‐1,3‐Galactose reduce the humoral barrier to xenotransplantation
Clinical xenotransplantation is not possible because humans possess antibodies that recognize antigens on the surface of pig cells. Galα‐1,3‐Gal (Gal) and N‐glycolylneuraminic acid (Neu5Gc) are two… Expand
Total revascularization with T grafts.
The T graft is constructed by anastomosing the proximal end of the free right internal thoracic artery to the side of the attached left internal thoracic artery. Besides adding considerable reach to… Expand
Use of Extended Criteria Livers Decreases Wait Time for Liver Transplantation Without Adversely Impacting Posttransplant Survival
Introduction:The use of extended criteria donors (ECDs) could minimize shortage of suitable donor livers for transplantation. In 3 years, the aggressive use of ECD livers has reduced the wait list at… Expand
Prospective, Multicenter Study of Ventricular Assist Device Infections
Background— Ventricular assist devices (VADs) improve survival and quality of life in patients with advanced heart failure, but their use is frequently complicated by infection. There are limited… Expand
Epidemiology of acute liver failure
Acute liver failure (ALF) is an uncommon disorder that leads to jaundice, coagulopathy, and multisystem organ failure. Its definition is based on the timing from onset of jaundice to encephalopathy.… Expand
Left ventricular assist devices as destination therapy: a new look at survival.
OBJECTIVE The REMATCH trial compared the use of left ventricular assist devices with optimal medical management for patients with end-stage heart failure. When the trial met its primary end point… Expand
Atherosclerosis of the internal mammary artery.
To better evaluate the incidence of atherosclerosis in the internal mammary artery (IMA), 215 IMA segments from routine postmortem examinations were evaluated microscopically. Significant… Expand
Current status of small bowel and multivisceral transplantation.
Intestinal transplantation has shown exceptional growth over the past 20 years with remarkable progress. As with other solid organ transplants, intestinal transplantation has moved out of the… Expand
Creating Class I MHC–Null Pigs Using Guide RNA and the Cas9 Endonuclease
Pigs are emerging as important large animal models for biomedical research, and they may represent a source of organs for xenotransplantation. The MHC is pivotal to the function of the immune system… Expand
