APOLT is a suitable technique of liver transplantation in patients with ALF and some types of MLD. Portal venous steal is a problem with this procedure that leads to graft dysfunction and failure. Modulation of the portal flow to the graft and native liver can help in preventing this problem. We discuss the pathophysiology of this complication, review(More)
BACKGROUND Immediate outcomes after pancreatic necrosectomy have improved in recent years. This study reviews our short-term to medium-term experience of structural and functional changes in the pancreas after necrosectomy. METHODS Ten patients (8 males, median age 35 years), discharged after pancreatic necrosectomy for acute necrotizing pancreatitis(More)
BACKGROUND Biliary cast syndrome (BCS) is an unusual complication of orthotopic liver transplantation (OLTx), and its management is difficult. Limited success using endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP) or open exploration to clear casts has been reported, but failure usually results in re-transplantation. We aimed to review our experience(More)
Achieving optimum outcomes after liver transplantation requires an understanding of the interaction between donor, graft and recipient factors. Within the cohort of patients waiting for a transplant, better matching of the donor organ to the recipient will improve transplant outcomes and benefit the overall waiting list by minimizing graft failure and need(More)
PURPOSE Viability testing can be used to avoid the transplantation of nonheart beating donor organs that are likely to have primary nonfunction. Such testing also identifies a second group of kidneys which, although unsuitable for solitary transplantation, may be considered for dual transplantation. In kidneys in this group solitary transplants would be(More)
BACKGROUND Hepatitis B virus (HBV) recurrence after a liver transplant (LT) is a global issue. Several strategies have been adopted to prevent this recurrence. Most strategies recommend a combination of hepatitis B immunoglobulin (HBIG) and or nucleos(t)ide analogue. AIM OF THE STUDY The aim of the study is to determine the anti-HBs response to HBIG among(More)
LT has played a significant role in improving the outcome of children with BA. We review our five-yr experience of LDLT for children with BA. Records of all children who underwent LDLT in our institution over a five-yr period (August 2010-June 2015) were reviewed and those with a primary diagnosis of BA were selected for our study. Data were extracted from(More)
