Renal transplantation is the optimal mode of therapy for patients with end-stage renal disease; the results are even better with living related donors. This procedure, therefore, favours the recipients, but what are the consequences for the donor? At our Department, between 1973 and 1996, 1325 kidney transplantations were performed, 78 from living, related(More)
The number of patients suffering from kidney disorders is increasing the need for kidney transplantation. Kidneys originating from living donors (LD) show substantially better results than those originating from cadaveric donors (CD). We performed 3000 kidney transplantations between November 1973 and December 2007, including 154 from LD (5.13%). The early(More)
The availability of cadaver livers for transplantation have been studied based on data recorded prospectively by authors. Between January 1, 1995 and August 31, 1995, 98 cadaver kidney donors were accepted in Hungary. Using well established selection criteria 52 of them could have been suitable for liver donation. Steatosis or cirrhosis of the donor livers(More)
MLC was performed preoperatively in 35 out of 57 candidates for renal transplantation. Three patients developed acute pancreatitis in the early postoperative stage, 2 of them died. In these three cases MLC revealed complete non-reactivity of the recipient lymphocytes, compared with the donor as well as with the positive control lymphocytes. None of the(More)
Kidney transplantation is a widely used method throughout the world for the treatment of end-stage renal disease. Following the pioneering work of Szeged Medical University Hospital and Miskolc District General Hospital, the first successful kidney transplantation in Hungary was performed at the Department of Transplantation and Surgery at Semmelweis(More)
INTRODUCTION Stromal tumors of the gastrointestinal tract are rare neoplasms, but they are the most common ones of mesenchymal origin. In a large proportion of patients clinical onset is represented by surgical emergencies. Incidence of GIST is calculated to be 10-20 cases per million per year. GISTs account for 0.1-3% of all gastrointestinal tumors, up to(More)
In 1994 we have started the Stoppa technique which was only used for the recurrent groin hernia repair, when Mersilene mesh was implanted in preperitoneal position from a lower midline incision. From March, 1994 to March, 1996 seventeen Stoppa procedures were performed in our department (14 men, 3 women, mean age of 66 years). Type of hernias: 13(More)
Major liver resection cannot be performed when the remaining liver mass is too small. Preoperative embolization of the portal vein (PVE) helps to increase the volume of the non-tumorous liver segments, and patients' liver function will remain stable postoperatively. CT, MRI, CTAP examinations help to decide about surgery. Volume measurements are performed(More)
