Hepatic venous reconstruction in pediatric living‐related donor liver transplantation – Experience of a single center
TLDR
It is concluded that hepatic venous reconstruction in pediatric living donor liver transplantation must be preferentially performed by using a wide triangulation on the recipient inferior vena cava, including the orifices of the three hepatic veins. Expand
Twenty seven-year experience with sternal cleft repair.
TLDR
Reconstructing sternal cleft with a 'posterior periosteal flap from sternal bars and chondral graft' is an effective option with good aesthetic and long-term functional results. Expand
The endoscopic and surgical management of portal hypertension in children: analysis of 123 cases.
TLDR
Since 1973, 178 children with portal hypertension have been seen at Instituto da Criança of the University of São Paulo Medical School and only seven children with sclerotherapy failure have since been treated by DSS, Characteristically these children had very similar splenoportographic pattern with huge esophageal and gastric varices and deviation of portal vein blood flow toward the left gastric vein.

Sleeve Gastrectomy With Transit Bipartition: A Potent Intervention for Metabolic Syndrome and Obesity
TLDR
SG + TB is a simple procedure that results in rapid weight loss and remission or major improvement of comorbidities, and TB is an excellent complement to an SG. Expand
Successful treatment of de novo autoimmune hepatitis and cirrhosis after pediatric liver transplantation
TLDR
It is demonstrated that de novo autoimmune hepatitis can appear in liver‐transplant patients despite appropriate anti‐rejection immunosuppression, and triple therapy with tacrolimus, mycophenolate mofetil, and prednisolone could sustain the graft and prevent retransplantation. Expand
Posterior reversible encephalopathy syndrome after liver transplantation in children: A rare complication related to calcineurin inhibitor effects
TLDR
Posterior reversible encephalopathy syndrome after liver transplantation in children: A rare complication related to calcineurin inhibitor effects. Expand
Basiliximab-chimeric anti-IL2-R monoclonal antibody in pediatric liver transplantation: comparative study.
TLDR
The addition of basiliximab to the immunosuppressive therapy did not reduce the incidence of AR in pediatric LT, and none of the analyzed parameters was statistically significant. Expand
"Rex shunt" for the treatment of portal vein thrombosis after pediatric liver transplantation: a case report.
TLDR
The mesenteric-portal shunt, using a left internal jugular vein autograft, should be considered for children with late PVT after liver transplantation, with great potential benefits and low risks for these patients. Expand
Mycophenolate mofetil promotes prolonged improvement of renal dysfunction after pediatric liver transplantation: Experience of a single center
TLDR
In liver transplanted pediatric patients with CNI‐induced chronic renal dysfunction, the administration of MMF in addition to reduced doses of CNIs promotes long‐term improvement in renal function parameters with no additional risks. Expand
Living related donor liver transplantation in children.
TLDR
Despite the heightened possibility of complications (mainly vascular), LRDLT represented a good alternative to transplantation from cadaveric donors in pediatric populations and was associated with a high survival ratio. Expand
