    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

The shortage of kidneys continues to drive clinicians to expand the criteria for donor organ suitability, including the use of organs that are blood group ABO-incompatible (ABOi). This month, Axelrod et al provide an in-depth analysis of the cost and benefit of ABOi transplants in the United States, explicitly defining the incremental cost and decremental survival associated with this approach. Their thoughtful discussion, combined with an editorial by Held and McCormick, provides a broad perspective on this practice. Also, several articles appear analyzing the revised Banff 2013 criteria for antibody-mediated rejection (ABMR; see minireview by Haas and article by De Serres et al) and trials for the treatment of ABMR (see article by Viglietti et al and Montgomery's editorial).

3D Printing in Transplantation

For several years, 3D printing has been used in medicine to create customized prosthetics and fabricate tissue and organs. How far are we from the generation of a fully functioning whole organ, such as a kidney, liver or heart? Also this issue, we review the Living Donor Protection Act introduced to Congress earlier this year.
