Because of the organ shortage, non-heart-beating donors have been proposed as a possible source of grafts for orthotopic liver transplantation (OLT). Despite the widespread use of controlled non-heart-beating donors, there are only a few published studies reporting the outcomes with uncontrolled non-heart-beating donors (UNHBDs). A prospective case-control(More)
INTRODUCTION Vascular complications show an 8%-15% incidence after liver transplantation and represent an important cause of mortality. An aggressive policy is necessary for an early diagnosis and treatment. PATIENTS AND METHODS From 2001 to 2009, we performed 240 liver transplantations in 232 patients. We employed Doppler ultrasonography on days 1 and 4(More)
INTRODUCTION Liver transplantation (OLT) has been advocated as a good management option for patients with carcinoma hepatocellular (HCC). More recurrences are extrahepatic due to many pathological factors. PATIENTS AND METHODS From April 1986 to December 2003, we performed 95. OLTs for HCC including 73% men of mean age of 54.7 years and 25.3% not filling(More)
GOALS/BACKGROUND The aim of this study was to decipher whether end-stage liver failure modifies peripheral blood lymphocytes (PBL) in a homogeneous manner, independently of the base pathology, or, if on the contrary, PBL subsets show a different profile in each hepatic disease. METHODS We studied PBL subsets in 71 patients with end-stage liver disease,(More)
INTRODUCTION The liver retransplantation rate in Spain is about 6%. The main causes are primary nonfunction, vascular complications, chronic rejection, and recurrent liver disease. The results of this procedure are worse than those of first transplantations. PATIENTS AND METHODS This retrospective study evaluated our experience with 54 retransplantations(More)
BACKGROUND Some variations of hepatic artery, which show 30% incidence, must be taken into account to avoid damage to the liver transplant during harvesting, we analyzed the incidence of variations and their influence on postoperative results. PATIENTS AND METHODS We performed a retrospective study of 325 liver transplantation between 2001 and December(More)
INTRODUCTION Living donor liver transplantation was first described as a way to alleviate the organ shortage. Extensive studies of both the prospective donor and the recipient are necessary to ensure successful outcome. In this paper we describe our results in 28 living donor liver transplantations from the perspective of the donor and the recipient. (More)
HLA-G non classical class I locus shows a comparatively low polymorphism. It encodes for tolerogenic HLA molecules that may be important in autoimmunity and transplant (and foetal) rejection control. HLA-G molecules give negative signals to Natural Killer and T lymphocytes. In the present paper, a new allele, HLA-G*08, is described, which may be useful for(More)
