BACKGROUND Laparoscopic distal pancreatectomy is regarded as a feasible and safe surgical alternative to open distal pancreatectomy for lesions of the pancreatic tail and body. The aim of the present systematic review was to provide recommendations for clinical practice and research on the basis of surgical morbidity, such as pancreas fistula, delayed(More)
Desmoplastic infantile gliomas (DIG) are rare tumors that occur in infants aged between 1 and 24 months. The tumor in general has a favorable prognosis after surgical resection. There are no treatment algorithms, however, for patients with multiple intracranial and intraspinal presentations. In an 11-month-old girl with a history of nystagmus, magnetic(More)
With advancements in the operative techniques, patient survival following liver transplantation (LTx) has increased substantially. This has led to the acceleration of pre-existing kidney disease because of immunosuppressive nephrotoxicity making additional kidney transplantation (KTx) inevitable. On the other hand, in a growing number of patients on the(More)
BACKGROUND An accident or a catastrophic disease may occasionally lead to brain death (BD) during pregnancy. Management of brain-dead pregnant patients needs to follow special strategies to support the mother in a way that she can deliver a viable and healthy child and, whenever possible, also be an organ donor. This review discusses the management of(More)
Changes in liver microcirculation are considered essential in assessing ischemia-reperfusion injury, which in turn has an impact on liver graft function and outcome following liver transplantation (LTx). The aim of this study was to introduce dynamic magnetic resonance imaging (dMRI) as a new technique for overall quantification of hepatic microcirculation(More)
Common bile duct stones (CBDSs) may occur in up to 3%-14.7% of all patients for whom cholecystectomy is preformed. Patients presenting with CBDS have symptoms including: biliary colic, jaundice, cholangitis, pancreatitis or may be asymptomatic. It is important to distinguish between primary and secondary stones, because the treatment approach varies. Stones(More)
Navigated intracranial endoscopy with conventional technique usually requires sharp head fixation. In children, especially in those younger than 1 year of age and in older children with thin skulls due to chronic hydrocephalus, sharp head fixation is not possible. Here, we studied the feasibility, safety, and accuracy of electromagnetic (EM)-navigated(More)
Caring for a brain dead potential organ donor requires a shift in critical care from the extensive treatment of increased intracranial pressure towards strategies to maintain donor organ function. Suboptimal, unstandardized critical care management of organ donors, however, is one of the main reasons for insufficient organ procurement. The(More)
During kidney transplantation (KTx), the length of cold ischemia time (CIT) and the subsequent changes in energy metabolism may lead to variations in interstitial metabolites. Using microdialysis (MD), we evaluated the effects of a short and long CIT on changes of these metabolites. Sixteen pigs were randomized in two identical groups, one with a short CIT(More)
During the last decades, the disparity between the organ supply and the demand for kidney transplantation in Europe has led to consider living donors as a more acceptable option. In the last 7 years, we have established an interdisciplinary supporting transplant team to increase the rate of living donation. After 2001, the new interdisciplinary transplant(More)
