The management of perianal fistula in patients with Crohn’s disease is an extremely challenging medical problem as many fistulas do not respond to available treatments. The objectives were to assess the safety and efficacy of a suspension of expanded adipose-derived allogeneic mesenchymal stem cells (eASCs) for the treatment of complex perianal fistula in(More)
Intrahepatic biliary lesions (IBL) are rare (2-9%) after orthotopic liver transplantation (OLT). The aim was to evaluate the incidence, etiology and outcome. In nine years, a total 532 OLTs were performed in 481 patients. Twenty-four patients developed IBL. Eight were due to HAT, seven to ABOI, three to CDR and six to PI. The time until diagnosis of HAT is(More)
To identify factors predictive of early postoperative graft function, we analyzed 54 variables--including easily available clinical and laboratory data prospectively obtained from organ donors, transplant recipients and surgical procedures in 168 consecutive liver transplantations. Early postoperative graft function was classified into three groups(More)
The aim of this study was to evaluate the influence of preserving the recipient's inferior vena cava during orthotopic liver transplantation (OLT) on hemodynamic alterations, blood component requirements, postoperative liver and renal function, as well as vascular-related complications. A total of 122 OLTs was studied. In 35 OLTs, venovenous bypass (BP) was(More)
The aim of this prospective study is to evaluate prostanoid (prostacyclin and thromboxane) and lipid peroxide levels at the portal and hepatic veins, and their relation to immediate postoperative liver function. Nineteen patients with liver cirrhosis undergoing orthotopic liver transplantation were prospectively studied. Blood samples were obtained within 5(More)
The aim of this study is to investigate the role of prostaglandins (PGI2 and TXA2) in relation with the hemodynamic alterations occuring after graft reperfusion in patients undergoing OLT. A total of 40 patients with liver cirrhosis were studied. Systemic 6-keto-PGF1 alpha and TXB2, stable metabolites of PGI2 and TXA2 respectively, were determined at the(More)
