BACKGROUND G6PD deficiency (G6PDd) is the commonest genetic enzyme defect in the world. However, baring a single case report, there is no published literature regarding the safety of donor hepatectomy in G6PDd individuals. METHODS Potential donors with World Health Organization class III or class IV G6PDd without evidence of hemolysis were evaluated for(More)
INTRODUCTION Left-sided liver resection (LLR) for perihilar cholangiocarcinoma (PHC) may require right hepatic artery (RHA) resection and reconstruction because of its intimate relationship with the biliary confluence. Consequently right-sided resections (RLR) are preferred for Bismuth-Corlette IIIb tumours, and resections avoided in Bismuth-Corlette IV(More)
BACKGROUND Live donor liver transplantation is the predominant form of liver transplantation in India and in most Asian countries. Donor outcome reports are an important source of information to be shared with prospective donors at the time of informed consent. This is the first donor outcome series from India. METHODS Analysis of donor characteristics(More)
In living donor liver transplantation, optimal graft size is estimated from values like graft volume/standard liver volume and graft/recipient body weight ratio but the final functional hepatic mass is influenced by other donor and recipient factors. Grafts with insufficient functional hepatic mass can produce a life-threatening condition with rapidly(More)
BACKGROUND AND AIMS The perioperative management of patients presenting for simultaneous liver and kidney transplantation (SLKT) is a complex process. We analysed SLKTs performed in our institution to identify preoperative, intraoperative and post-operative challenges encountered in the management. METHODS We retrospectively studied the case records of 12(More)
Auxiliary partial orthotopic liver transplantation (APOLT) is a technique of liver transplantation (LT) where a partial liver graft is implanted in an orthotopic position after leaving behind a part of the native liver. APOLT was previously considered technically challenging with results inferior to orthotopic liver transplantation. Results of this(More)
The coastal city of Chennai, India, was inundated by unprecedented heavy rains during the last week of November 2015, in what was billed as a "once in a century" floods. Over 350 people lost their lives in the floods. Global Hospital, a 250-bedded tertiary care hospital in Chennai, was heavily flooded leaving more than 100 patients and their relatives(More)
Propionic acidemia (PA) is an autosomal recessive disorder of metabolism due to deficiency of the enzyme propionyl-CoA carboxylase (PCC) that converts propionyl-CoA to methylmalonyl-CoA with the help of the cofactor biotin inside the mitochondria. The resultant accumulation of propionyl-CoA causes severe hyperammonaemia and life-threatening metabolic(More)
Perioperative terlipressin (Tp) during living donor liver transplantation (LDLT) has been shown to reduce intraoperative portal pressures and improve renal function. Its role and safety profile have never been evaluated in a double-blind randomized controlled trial (RCT). The aim was to evaluate the hemodynamic effects, clinical benefits, and safety of(More)
