BACKGROUND Portal vein thrombosis (PVT) has been mentioned as a potential obstacle to liver transplantation (LTx). OBJECTIVE To review the impact of PVT on orthotopic liver transplant (OLT) outcome. METHOD Between January 2006 and April 2009, 440 OLT were performed in Shiraz Transplant Unit of whom, 35 (7.9%) cases had old PVT with recanalization. Data(More)
BACKGROUND New-onset diabetes after transplantation (NODAT) is a serious complication in transplant recipients. Transcription factor-7-like 2 (TCF7L2) is a Wnt signaling-associated transcription factor that plays an important role in β-cell proliferation and insulin secretion. The association between TCF7L2 SNP rs7903146 and NODAT was documented in renal(More)
BACKGROUND Multivisceral transplantations were initially done in animal models to understand the immunological effects. Later on, in human beings, it has been considered a salvage procedure for unresectable complex abdominal malignancies. With advancement in surgical techniques, availability of better immunosuppressive drugs, and development of better(More)
BACKGROUND Tumors involving the root of the mesentery are generally regarded as "unresectable" with conventional surgical techniques. Resection with conventional surgery may end in life-threatening complications in these patients. Ex-vivo resection and auto-transplantation avoids excessive bleeding and prevents ischemic related damage to the small intestine(More)
BACKGROUND Solid organ transplantation is the only definitive treatment available for patients with end-stage organ failure. Organs procured from brain-death donors are the main source of transplants. Following brain death, a burst of inflammatory reaction develops; it is characterized by increased plasma levels of cytokines. This inflammatory reaction has(More)
BACKGROUND Kidney transplantation is the best available treatment for patients with end-stage renal disease. OBJECTIVE To evaluate the en bloc anastomosis technique for unilateral dual kidney transplantation (DKT). METHODS From May to October 2011, 5 patients (4 women and 1 man) with mean age of 31.8 years underwent unilateral DKT with this technique in(More)
BACKGROUND Liver transplantation (LT) is the standard treatment of end-stage liver diseases (ESLD). Invasive fungal infection is one of the important causes of morbidity and mortality after transplantation. OBJECTIVE To determine the incidence of late-onset (after 6 months of LT) Candida infection in recipients. METHODS A retrospective study was(More)
Surgical procedures involving heart and liver are rare and have been limited to either combined heart and liver transplantation or coronary artery bypass graft surgery (CABG) or aortic valve surgery and orthotopic liver transplantation (OLT). Aortic valve replacement (AVR) and pulmonary valve vegetectomy for bacterial endocarditis after OLT have also been(More)
