A long-term follow-up study of 55 transsexual patients (32 male-to-female and 23 female-to-male) post-sex reassignment surgery (SRS) was carried out to evaluate sexual and general health outcome. Relatively few and minor morbidities were observed in our group of patients, and they were mostly reversible with appropriate treatment. A trend toward more(More)
BACKGROUND In female-to-male transsexuals, the first surgical procedure in their reassignment surgery consists of the subcutaneous mastectomy. The goals of subcutaneous mastectomy are removal of breast tissue, removal of excess skin, reduction and proper positioning of the nipple and areola, and ideally, minimization of chest-wall scars. The authors present(More)
LEARNING OBJECTIVES After studying this article, the participant should be able to discuss: 1. The terminology related to male-to-female gender dysphoria. 2. The different theories regarding cause, epidemiology, and treatment of gender dysphoria. 3. The surgical goals of sex reassignment surgery in male-to-female transsexualism. 4. The surgical techniques(More)
We investigated the role of donor bone marrow cell (DBMC) infusions in immunosuppression withdrawal in adult liver transplantation. Patients enrolled were at least 3 years post-transplantation, with stable graft function. Forty-five (study group: G1) received DBMC, and 59 (control group: G2) did not. Immunosuppression was reduced by one third upon(More)
Intestinal transplantation has evolved over the years with major improvements in patient and graft survival. Acute cellular rejection of the intestine, however, still remains one of the most challenging aspects of postoperative management. We analyzed retrospectively collected data from 209 recipients of primary intestinal grafts at our institution over the(More)
Aortohepatic conduits provide a vital alternative for graft arterialization during liver transplantation. Conflicting results exist with respect to the rates of comorbidities, and long-term survival data on primary grafts are lacking. To identify the complications associated with aortohepatic conduits in primary liver transplantation and their impact on(More)
Since the adoption of the Model for End-Stage Liver Disease, simultaneous liver/kidney transplants (SLKT) have substantially increased. Recently, unfavorable outcomes have been reported yet contributing factors remain unclear. We retrospectively reviewed 74 consecutive adult SLKT performed at our center from 2000 to 2010 and compared with kidney transplant(More)
The cross sections and forward-backward asymmetries of hadronic and leptonic events produced in ee collisions at centre-of-mass energies from 130 to 183 GeV are presented. Results for ee, μμ, ττ, qq̄, bb̄ and cc̄ production show no significant deviation from the Standard Model predictions. This enables constraints to be set upon physics beyond the Standard(More)
BACKGROUND Tactile and erogenous sensitivity in reconstructed genitals is one of the goals in sex reassignment surgery. Since November 1993 until April 2003, a total of 105 phalloplasties with the radial forearm free flap and 127 vaginoclitoridoplasties with the inverted penoscrotal skin flap and the dorsal glans pedicled flap have been performed at Ghent(More)
Gender reassignment (which includes psychotherapy, hormonal therapy and surgery) has been demonstrated as the most effective treatment for patients affected by gender dysphoria (or gender identity disorder), in which patients do not recognize their gender (sexual identity) as matching their genetic and sexual characteristics. Gender reassignment surgery is(More)
