    Intracaval Mass Discovered at the Time of Liver Procurement

    (A) Mass encountered in the inferior vena cava of a donor liver allograft. (B) Demonstration of the mobility and attachment of the mass to the wall of the inferior vena cava.

  • Fatal Complication of Recent Liver Transplant

    Fatal Complication of Recent Liver Transplant

    Maculopapular rash. The rash was also present on the chest, abdomen, bilateral thighs, and upper extremities.

  • Critical Incidental Ultrasound Finding in the Postoperative Renal Transplant Patient

    Successful Liver Retrieval After Acute Aortic Dissection Involving the Celiac Artery Origin

    (A) Preoperative CT image showing the affected origin of the celiac artery (CA). However, arterial enhancement is seen beyond the celiac artery origin and in all the intrahepatic arterial branches. The true lumen (arrow) and the false lumen (*) are shown, separated by an intimal flap. (B) Reconstructed image of the entire aorta demonstrating the dissected CA and the left renal artery (RA). The superior mesenteric artery (SMA) and the right RA are patent.

Current Issue Highlights

This month, AJT focuses on liver transplantation and its associated biology. Some highlights include a superb Comprehensive Review of the immune structural anatomy of the liver from Demetris et al, new advances in liver xenotransplantation from Navarro-Alvarez et al, and first-in-man experience using a novel ex vivo normothermic perfusion device from Ravikumar et al. These articles are accompanied by numerous other important contributions examining technical aspects of liver surgery and liver transplant outcomes, to bring the reader up to date with the many advances in contemporary liver transplantation.

The AJT Report

Increasing Access

New research has found wide variability in transplant center acceptance of livers for the highest ranked, sickest patients. This month, we look at new performance metrics that researchers suggest should include acceptance behavior. Also this month, we look at Wiley’s new Transplant Peer Review Network and the Living Donor Protection Act introduced in Congress earlier this year.
