INTRODUCTION Psychologic disturbances are becoming more common in kidney transplantation, owing to effects of immunosuppressive therapy. In this study, we explored the incidence and specifity of psychopathology among kidney transplant patients. Twenty kidney transplant recipients underwent the Machover Draw-A-person test to detect significant variables(More)
INTRODUCTION Type II mixed cryoglobulin syndrome is a systematic vasculitis mainly linked to immune complex deposition in several organs and to hepatitis C virus infection. Therapeutic strategies can target either the viral trigger hepatitis C virus if present, or pathogenic events downstream the triggering infection, e.g, the proliferation B-cells(More)
UNLABELLED Fenoldopam is a selective DA1 agonist with potential nephroprotective capabilities. The aim of this study was to compare the nephroprotective effect of fenoldopam and dopamine during general anesthesia for living donor kidney transplantation. METHODS Forty donors enrolled in the study received a similar anesthetic and fluid protocol. The(More)
BACKGROUND Complications related to posttransplantation immunosuppressive therapy remain common. New-onset diabetes mellitus after transplantation (PTDM) is a well-recognized complication associated with reduced graft and patient survival. The type of immunosuppression may be responsible for more than two thirds of PTDM. We retrospectively reviewed our(More)
Proper management of obese patients requires a team vision and appropriate behaviors by all health care providers in hospital. Specialist competencies are fundamental, as are specific clinical pathways and good clinical practices designed to deal with patients whose Body Mass Index (BMI) is ≥30 kg/m2. Standards of care for bariatric and non-bariatric(More)
Difficult airway management and maintenance of oxygenation remain the two most challenging tasks for anesthetists, while also being controversial items in terms of clinically based-evidence to support relevant guidelines in the literature. Nevertheless, different expert groups and scientific societies from several countries have published guidelines(More)
BACKGROUND Infection is a common cause of morbidity and mortality in kidney transplant recipients. The incidence of esophageal and urogenital candidiasis in kidney and kidney-pancreas transplant recipients has not been well documented. Azoles are safe, effective agents to treat esophageal candidiasis. However, resistance to azoles is now becoming common.(More)
