The human cytomegalovirus is widely prevalent among human population and it is the most common viral pathogen that affects both the graft's and solid-organ transplant recipient's survival. The risk is highest in donor-seropositive, recipient-seronegative pairing transplantation. These recipients carry increased risk of developing symptomatic primary CMV(More)
Sepsis is the major cause of patient death after orthotopic liver transplantation (OLT). To identify risk factors for sepsis, we analyzed all 199 primary OLTs performed between 1995 and 2004. Patients were divided into 2 groups according to whether they experienced sepsis after liver transplantation. Recipient, perioperative factors, and complications were(More)
INTRODUCTIONS The authors summarize the demographic, morbidity and mortality characteristics of the Hungarian Liver Transplant Program. AIMS They evaluate the changes and development, that has taken place with regard to indications, recipient population and characteristics, operation technique, and peroperative patient management. METHOD In order to(More)
A total of 81 orthotopic liver transplantations were performed on 74 patients between January 1995 and December 1999 at the Department of Transplantation and Surgery of the Semmelweis University in Budapest. Indication for transplantation was liver cirrhosis in 57 cases, 10 patients were transplanted due to fulminant liver failure, while 7 patients(More)
Authors analyzed the differences in the outcome of two European liver transplant centers differing in case volume and experience. The first was the Transplantation and Surgical Clinic, Semmelweis University, Budapest, Hungary (SEB) and the second the University Medical Center Groningen, Groningen, The Netherlands (UMCG). We investigated if such differences(More)
INTRODUCTION Recurrence of primary sclerosing cholangitis (rPSC) after liver transplantation (OLT) significantly affects long-term graft survival. We aimed to evaluate the incidence of rPSC and clinical data of these patients in Hungary. PATIENTS AND METHODS We retrospectively analyzed data of 511 whole liver transplantations from 1995 to 2011. During the(More)
The efficacy of the long-lasting somatostatin analogue, octreotide, in the treatment of high-output pancreatic fistulas was investigated in this prospective, open study. Sixteen patients with post-operative pancreatic fistulas were treated with subcutaneous injections of octreotide 0.1 mg b.d. The output of the fistulas before the somatostatin therapy(More)
UNLABELLED Liver transplantation is a routinely used therapeutic choice in the treatment of end stage liver disease. Portal vein stenosis is a rare vascular complication after liver transplantation. We report the interventional radiological management of three cases of portal vein stenosis. AIM The surgical management of portal vein stenosis can be(More)
Because of the long waiting time for pediatric liver transplantation, new techniques of liver transplantation were invented. Split and living-donor related liver transplantation are common today and the Kaplan-Meier (3 years) overall survival is over 80%. By splitting the liver, two recipients can be transplanted. In general, the left lobe is used for the(More)
The history of organ transplantation in Hungary dates back to 50 years, and the first succesful liver transplantation was performed in the United States in that time as well. The number of patients with end stage liver disease increased worldwide, and over 7000 patients die in each year due to liver disease in Hungary. The most effective treatment of(More)
