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

    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.

    Chest computed tomography 2 months prior to transplant.

  • A 71-Year-Old Kidney Transplant Recipient With Hemorrhagic Mucocutaneous Lesions

    A 71-Year-Old Kidney Transplant Recipient With Hemorrhagic Mucocutaneous Lesions

    Ulcers with hemorrhagic crusts on philtrum, nares, and lateral labial commissure.

  • Graft Tenderness 9 Years After Kidney Transplant

    Graft Tenderness 9 Years After Kidney Transplant

    Kidney transplant in right lower quadrant.

  • 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.

Current Issue Highlights

Numerous strategies have emerged to provide beta cell replacement to patients with diabetes, including pancreas transplantation, islet cell transplantation, and most recently, the artificial pancreas. Each has advantages and disadvantages, but to date, none has distinguished itself as a satisfactory, scalable therapy. In this issue of AJT, we present numerous articles highlighting the current state of these three modalities. Brennan et al present 12-year follow-up on recipients of islet transplants using the Edmonton protocol, and Moassesfar et al present a study comparing pancreas to islet transplantation. Both are commented upon in an editorial by Markmann. Forlenza et al present their promising results of a closed-loop artificial pancreas trial. Singh et al and King et al provide important analyses of complications related to pancreas transplantation, while Gruessner and Gruessner provide data from the International Pancreas Transplant Registry on pancreas after islet transplant results.

The AJT Report

16-2AJTRep

US to Offer Uterus Transplants

Key Points

  • The Cleveland Clinic has proposed offering the first uterine transplant in the United States, and three additional U.S. centers have expressed interest in developing their own programs.
  • The initial effort in Cleveland would include 10 women and use deceased donor organs; any delivery would be performed via Caesarian section.
  • Future plans for studies with deceased donors and with organs procured by robotic-assisted laparoscopy are currently in development internationally
