  • Abdominal Mass Found in a Liver Transplant Recipient

    Abdominal Mass Found in a Liver Transplant Recipient

    CT of abdomen and pelvis.

  • A Surprising Renal Graft Doppler Ultrasound in a Kidney–Heart Transplant Recipient: When Hemodynamic Analysis Is Even More Informative Than Usual

    A Surprising Renal Graft Doppler Ultrasound in a Kidney–Heart Transplant Recipient: When Hemodynamic Analysis Is Even More Informative Than Usual

    Doppler ultrasound of the renal graft on postoperative day 21. Color and pulsed wave Doppler of an interlobar artery during inspiration (red dots) and expiration (green dots). Cross 1 measures the arterial systolic peak velocity, and cross 2 measures the end diastolic velocity. Resistive indices are normal on expiration at 0.70, and severely increased on inspiration at 1 (due to the disappearance of the antegrade diastolic flow). These variations were not secondary to patient's motion.

  • Fever of Unknown Origin in a Kidney Transplant Recipient

    Fever of Unknown Origin in a Kidney Transplant Recipient

    Limited noncontrast CT of the chest showing bilateral ground-glass infiltrates.

  • Persistent Ascites, Leg Edema and Renal Dysfunction After Liver Transplant

    Persistent Ascites, Leg Edema and Renal Dysfunction After Liver Transplant

    Initial venogram of inferior vena cava. Arrow indicates area of concern.

  • Fatal Infectious Pulmonary Complications Post-Deceased Donor Renal Transplantation

    Fatal Infectious Pulmonary Complications Post-Deceased Donor Renal Transplantation

    (A) Anterior–posterior chest X-ray on presentation demonstrated a large 13 cm cavity in the right hemithorax likely representing a large lung abscess. An empyema is also in the differential, but would be considered less likely. (B) Coronal image from a CT performed on admission demonstrating a large focus of infection involving the right lower lobe with extension into the right pleural space and chest wall via a bronchopleural fi stula.

  • A Rare Anomaly in the Donor Vena Cava

    A Rare Anomaly in the Donor Vena Cava

    An inferior vena cava web is identified during surgery in a live patient.

  • An Unusual Case of Ischemic Nephropathy

    An Unusual Case of Ischemic Nephropathy

    Abdominal CT scan without contrast.

  • Early Graft Dysfunction After Lung Transplantation

    Early Graft Dysfunction After Lung Transplantation

    CXR 6 h after bilateral LTx demonstrating dense pulmonary infiltrates.

Current Issue Highlights

Hyperlipidemia is a common comorbid condition in transplant patients, one that is exacerbated by the immunosuppressive drugs used to prevent rejection. Long known to worsen cardiovascular disease, two articles from the Iacomini lab (Bagley et al and Yuan et al) now demonstrate a direct impact on allospecific lymphocyte function, implicating this condition in the rejection process directly. These studies have clear clinical implications, and pull together two apparently distinct disease processes into a common disease paradigm. Cover design by Ken North, North Design Group.

The AJT Report

SEPT2015 REPORT
As the transplant community better defines the risks facing livi ng kidney donors, it seeks more standardized recommendations for potential donors. This issue of “The AJT Report” looks at the risk factors influencing this discussion, and how best to communicate them to donors. See articles by Rodrigue et al on page 2387, Schold et al on page 2394, and the brief communication from Tambur et al on page 2465 for more on this. Also in this issue, should African-American living kidney donors be genotyped for APOL1 risk alleles?
