The objective was to assess whether recurrent sarcoid granulomas in the lung graft are derived from recipient or donor immune cells. Three patients had sarcoid recurrence in the lung(More)
Chronic partial bladder outlet obstruction was created in nine mini-pigs by implanting a 6-7 mm ring around the proximal urethra. After a median obstruction period of 63 days, the ring was removed and after a recovery period of median 60 days the animals were sacrificed. Changes in muscle and connective tissue were assessed by unbiased, modern morphometry(More)

Heart transplantation (HTx) is a well-established treatment for severe cardiac failure. However, HTx for cardiac sarcoidosis is rare; less than 80 patients have been reported worldwide. In many patients, the diagnosis was not made prior to HTx. The aim of this study was to describe the use of HTx in the treatment of severe cardiac sarcoidosis. The series(More)
