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)
UNLABELLED New-onset diabetes is a common complication after liver transplantation. AIM We aimed to analyze the incidence and rate of known risk factors and the impact of new-onset diabetes mellitus on postoperative outcome. METHODS We retrospectively evaluated the files of 310 patients who underwent liver transplantation between 1995 and 2009.(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)
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)
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)
Biliary complications (BC) significantly affect morbidity and mortality after orthotopic liver transplantation (OLT). The aim of this study was to analyze the incidence and types of biliary complications after OLT in Hungary. We retrospectively analyzed data of 471 adult liver transplant recipients between 1995 and 2011. Biliary complications occurred in(More)
The authors conducted a prospective randomized trial to compare the Shouldice and the Bassini-Kirschner technique between April, 1994 and December, 1995. During this period 129 adult patients, mean age 54 (17-87) years underwent operation on primary inguinal hernias in their department. 63 Shouldice and 66 Bassini-Kirschner operations were performed by 17(More)
One-third of the liver transplantations are performed because of hepatitis C cirrhosis all over the world and also in Hungary. The recurrence rate is practically 100%, influencing graft and patient survivals; within 5 years cirrhosis develops again in 20% to 30% of cases. The therapy is pegylated interferon α-2a and α-2b plus ribavirin as for(More)
In addition to hepatitis C, hepatocellular carcinoma. is a leading indication for orthotopic liver transplantation (OLT). The indications for OLT in HCC remains a topic of debate. The successful Milan criteria are still accepted as the gold standard to select candidates with a good chance for long-term survival. The Hungarian Liver Transplant Program(More)
