Antiphospholipid antibody syndrome (APS) is an enigmatic heterogeneous disorder despite several revelations in its pathobiology. Renal transplantation in patients with APS has been notoriously difficult due to the high risk of development of thrombotic microangiopathy (TMA), which is often refractory to conventional treatment modalities such as aggressive(More)
PURPOSE This study aimed to investigate the use of anatomically tailored hexagonal sampling for scan-time and error reduction in MRI. MATERIALS AND METHODS Anatomically tailored hexagonal MRI (ANTHEM), a method that combines hexagonal sampling with specific symmetry in anatomical geometry, is proposed. By using hexagonal sampling, aliasing artifacts are(More)
The preimplantation kidney biopsy affects utilization by diagnosing glomerulosclerosis, interstitial fibrosis (IF), arteriosclerosis, and arteriolar hyalinosis. Organ procurement organizations (OPOs) determine whether a donor warrants this biopsy and the donor hospital pathologists (DHPs) report on an OPO-specific pathology interpretation form. Biopsy(More)
Late allograft failure (LAF) is a common cause of end stage renal disease. These patients face interrelated challenges regarding immunosuppression management, risk of graft intolerance syndrome (GIS), and sensitization. This retrospective study analyzes sensitization, pathology, imaging, and transfusion requirements in 33 LAFs presenting either with GIS(More)
Chronic hepatitis C viremia (HepC) has been associated with numerous renal manifestations both in native kidneys and in the setting of renal transplantation. Glomerulonephritis (GN) of the renal allograft in the setting of HepC most commonly manifests as type 1 membranoproliferative GN (MPGN), either representing recurrence of the original disease or(More)
