Glycogen storage disease (GSD) types I, III, and IV can be associated with severe liver disease. The possible development of hepatocellular carcinoma and/or hepatic failure make these GSDs potential candidates for liver transplantation. Early diagnosis and initiation of effective dietary therapy have dramatically improved the outcome of GSD type I by(More)
BACKGROUND Patient and graft survival after liver transplantation are adversely affected by early posttransplant renal dysfunction. Therefore, our immunosuppressive strategies should be as "renal sparing" as possible. This is the largest published series to date using daclizumab induction therapy in a renal-sparing regimen. METHODS This is a(More)
Hepatic artery aneurysms/pseudoaneurysms (HAAs) are rare but serious complications after orthotopic liver transplantation (OLT). Revascularization should accompany aneurysmectomy if possible and is more feasible if the aneurysm presents late after transplantation. The optimal conduits for revascularization in this situation are not known. Two patients with(More)
The role of preoperative stress single-photon emission computed tomographic (SPECT) imaging in patients with end-stage liver disease who underwent liver transplantation is not well established. We reviewed medical records of patients who had liver transplantation at our institution between January 1998 and November 2001. During this time, 339 patients (213(More)
There are few Western studies evaluating prognostic factors for survival in patients with hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) and the influence on survival of various therapeutic options including ortbotopic liver transplantation (OLT). A retrospective analysis was performed of 122 patients with HCC treated at the University of Alabama at Birmingham from January(More)
The optimal treatment strategy for patients with symptomatic hypertrophic obstructive cardiomyopathy (HOCM) and end-stage liver disease (ESLD) is not well defined. Although medical management is the accepted first line treatment, patients who are unresponsive to medication require further interventions. Since ESLD patients have a high operative risk for(More)
Hereditary tyrosinemia type 1 (HT-1) is a metabolic disorder caused by a defect in tyrosine degradation. Without treatment, symptoms of hepatomegaly, renal tubular dysfunction, growth failure, neurologic crises resembling porphyrias, rickets and possible hepatocellular carcinoma can develop. The use of(More)
BACKGROUND Prograde flushing (PF) of living donor renal allografts with preservation solution via the renal artery or arteries is standard practice. PF may be difficult and potentially injurious to the donor kidney, especially in grafts with small or multiple arteries. In this report, we present our experience with retrograde flushing (RF) of 7 living donor(More)
