The authors present their experience with the totally implanted vascular reservoirs for chemotherapy. Thirty-one reservoirs were implanted in 29 patients. Complications were observed in 19.3% of the cases imposing the removal of 12.9% of them. No reservoir have been lately removed because of infection or obstruction. Based on their results, the authors(More)
Thirteen out of 268 children (less than 18 years old) underwent hepatic transplantation (OLT) for end-stage liver disease (ESLD) associated with arteriohepatic dysplasia (AHD). Seven children are alive and well with normal liver function. Six children died, four within 11 days of the operation and the other two at 4 and 10 months after the OLT. Vascular(More)
The increasing number of transplants performed each year has led to the identification of unusual diseases in liver grafts from asymptomatic donors that were unrecognized before liver transplantation. Here we report our experience with patients who received liver grafts infected with schistosomiasis. From September 1991 to August 2010, 482 pediatric liver(More)
An isolated marked transient rise in serum alkaline phosphatase levels in otherwise healthy children is a well-documented occurrence. However, in children undergoing liver transplantation, elevated alkaline phosphatase values raise the possibility of biliary obstruction, rejection, or both. During a 6-year period, 6 of 278 children undergoing liver(More)
BACKGROUND During left lateral segmentectomy for live-donor liver transplant, the vascular inflow to segment IV can be compromised. An area of ischemia can be seen intraoperatively and further segment IV resection may be needed to prevent necrosis and abscess formation. METHODS From July 1995 to February 2007, 324 consecutive living donor liver(More)
The availability of living donors allows transplant teams to indicate living donor liver transplantation (LDLT) early in the course of liver disease before the occurrence of life-threatening complications. Late referral to transplant centers is still a problem and can compromise the success of the procedure. The aim of this study was to examine the(More)
Infants with end-stage liver disease represent a treatment challenge. Living donor liver transplantation (LDLT) is the only option for timely liver transplantation in many areas of the world, adding to the technical difficulties of the procedure. Factors that affect morbidity and mortality can now be determined, which opens a new era for improvement. We(More)
OBJECTIVES: To present the experience with the first 12 living related liver transplants performed at Hospital Sírio-Libanês in São Paulo. METHODS: The donors were the fathers (6) and the mothers (6) with age ranging from 30 to 48 years. All candidates for donation were submitted to a full informed consent form, clinical and radiological evaluation and had(More)
The Pediatric End-Stage Liver Disease (PELD) scoring system is a formula developed to provide a continuous numerical assessment of the risk of death in order to allocate livers to children in need of transplantation. The PELD scoring system was introduced in Brazil in July 2006. An important change was made in the system: the final number for listing(More)
