BACKGROUND Transplantation is the only treatment for patients with liver failure. Since the therapy imposes high expenses to the patients and community, identification of effective factors on survival of such patients after transplantation is valuable. OBJECTIVES The current study attempted to model the survival of patients (two years old and above) after(More)
BACKGROUND Tumors involving the root of the mesentery are generally regarded as "unresectable" with conventional surgical techniques. Resection with conventional surgery may end in life-threatening complications in these patients. Ex-vivo resection and auto-transplantation avoids excessive bleeding and prevents ischemic related damage to the small intestine(More)
OBJECTIVES The Shiraz Organ Transplant Center, the largest transplant center in Iran, has expanded its program of organ transplant during recent years. This article seeks to summarize organ transplantation over the last 2 decades and evaluate its status as of 2011. MATERIALS AND METHODS We retrospectively analyzed the clinical records of all organ(More)
Access to autologous Schwann cells is limited due to lack of donor site and its difficult isolation and culture. Therefore, one of the possible ways to obtain to Schwann cells is to differentiate mesenchymal stem cells into glial pathway using various materials and protocols. The aim of this study was to compare the effects of fetal bovine serum and human(More)
BACKGROUND Some intra-abdominal or retroperitoneal tumors such as low-grade slow-growing malignancies may seem unresectable due to major vessel encasement or presence of intra-abdominal dissemination, but the slow growth rate and to some extent long life expectancy of the patients urge us to find some strategies to cure the patients or at least achieve(More)
OBJECTIVES One of the main concerns in liver transplant is the prolonged ischemia time, which may lead to primary graft nonfunction or delayed function. N-acetylcysteine is known as a hepato-protective agent in different studies, which may improve human hepatocyte viability in steatotic donor livers. This study investigated whether N-acetylcysteine can(More)
Liver transplant can be challenging in cirrhotic patients with diabetes mellitus. In chronic liver disease, the glucose metabolism is altered; uncontrolled diabetes negatively influences the outcome of liver transplantation and poses difficulty in the management of immediate post transplantation period. Simultaneous liver-pancreas transplantation is an(More)
BACKGROUND Multivisceral transplantations were initially done in animal models to understand the immunological effects. Later on, in human beings, it has been considered a salvage procedure for unresectable complex abdominal malignancies. With advancement in surgical techniques, availability of better immunosuppressive drugs, and development of better(More)
BACKGROUND Associating liver partition and portal vein ligation for staged hepatectomy (ALPPS) is a novel surgical technique liver resection in traditionally nonresectable primary intrahepatic tumors or colorectal liver metastases. MATERIALS AND METHODS From June 2013 to March 2014, patients with primary tumor of liver or colorectal tumors with liver(More)
OBJECTIVES Patients who have liver transplant are at high risk of developing de novo malignancies. The purpose of this study was to evaluate incidence and histologic type of de novo malignancies after liver transplant in a liver transplant center. MATERIALS AND METHODS In 1700 patients who had orthotopic liver transplant from deceased and living donors(More)
