Recurrence of hepatocellular carcinoma after liver transplant: Patterns and prognosis
TLDR
Recurrence of HCC significantly shortens survival after transplant, and some patients with recurrence can be expected to live for a considerable period of time, although surgery is independently associated with longer survival. Expand
BILIARY COMPLICATIONS IN 96 CONSECUTIVE RIGHT LOBE LIVING DONOR TRANSPLANT RECIPIENTS
TLDR
Despite technical modifications and application of various surgical techniques, biliary complications remain frequent after RL LDLT and patients with multiple biliary reconstructions had a higher incidence of bile leaks. Expand
Central nervous system complications in liver transplant recipients – incidence, timing, and long‐term follow‐up
TLDR
Most CNS complications occur early following OLT but may be seen even after 1 yr, and patients may survive serious neurologic events, such as cerebral hemorrhage, CPM, and meningitis. Expand
Laparoscopic versus open resection of colorectal liver metastasis
TLDR
According to the short-term results, LLR is equivalent to open resection in terms of oncologic outcomes, and is associated with less blood loss and a shorter hospital stay thanOpen resection for CLM. Expand
Quality of life after lobectomy for adult liver transplantation.
TLDR
Quality of life after donation must remain a primary outcome measure when the utility of living-donor liver transplants is considered, and several donors felt the experience had changed their lives for the better. Expand
Anatomic variations in right liver living donors.
TLDR
Anatomic variations are common but do not contraindicate donation; surgeons should be prepared to recognize and manage them. Expand
Living donor liver transplantation: Summary of a conference at The National Institutes of Health
TLDR
The goals of this workshop were to review the scientific, medical, and nonmedical issues associated with living donor liver transplantation, and to define questions for future basic and clinical investigations which could improve the success and applicability of this procedure. Expand
Adult Living Donor Liver Transplantation for Patients With Hepatocellular Carcinoma: Extending UNOS Priority Criteria
TLDR
Although one third of patients had tumors > 5 cm, the incidence of recurrence as well as patient survival and freedom from recurrence are comparable to results after cadaveric transplant. Expand
An emerging population: kidney transplant candidates who are placed on the waiting list after liver, heart, and lung transplantation.
TLDR
KTx candidates who are placed on the waiting list after NRTx constitute a significant and more rapidly growing cohort compared with the general KTx candidate population, and targeted use of expanded-criteria donor and living-donor transplants in the N RTx population may be particularly important given their high mortality on the wait list. Expand
Live donor liver transplantation
TLDR
All efforts should be made to improve deceased donor donation so as to minimize the need for live donors, and transplant physicians, particularly surgeons, must take responsibility for regulating and overseeing these procedures. Expand
