  • 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

    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.

    An Unexpected Foreign Body in the Colon of a Heart Transplant Recipient

    Endoscopic view of the transverse colon. (A) The pacemaker wires fixed to the mucosa. (B) Removal of the wires. Arrow: the metallic tips at the end of the wires.

  • Right Homonymous Hemianopsia and Seizures in a Liver Transplant Recipient

    Right Homonymous Hemianopsia and Seizures in a Liver Transplant Recipient

    Neuroimaging. (A) Axial noncontrast computer tomography demonstrating hypodensity in the left occipital lobe. Note that the lesion does not precisely follow the vascular distribution of the posterior cerebral artery. (B) Axial diffusion-weighted magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) reveals hyperintensity in the left occipital lobe consistent with cytotoxic edema and recent infarct confirmed by corresponding hypointensity on the apparent diffusion coefficient map (C). (D) Axial T1-weighted, gadolinium enhanced MRI shows two confluent, rim-enhancing lesions abutting the occipital horn of the left lateral ventricle. There is associated midline shift and effacement of the ipsilateral hemispheric sulci.

  • Renal Failure in a Kidney Transplant Recipient—BK Virus Nephropathy or Rejection?

    Renal Failure in a Kidney Transplant Recipient—BK Virus Nephropathy or Rejection?

    The hematoxylin and eosin stain of transplant kidney biopsy done 3 years posttransplantation reveals moderate interstitial fibrosis and tubular atrophy with inflammatory infiltration. Serum creatinine was 2.5mg/dL and serum BK virus PCR was undetectable at <5000 copies/mL on the day of biopsy.

  • Bovine Pericardium Diaphragm Repair of Diaphragmatic Hernia After LVAD Explantation and Heart Transplantation

  • Hemorrhagic Shock One Month Following Uncomplicated Liver Transplantation

    Hemorrhagic Shock One Month Following Uncomplicated Liver Transplantation

    CT of the abdomen shows a collection in the porta hepatis/gallbladder fossa that represents a hematoma (labeled H). The reconstructed hepatic artery is redundant. The arrow represents an abnormality adjacent to the hepatic artery and the duodenum (labeled D).

Current Issue Highlights

Few would argue that the most sacred tenet of organ transplantation is the respect of living donors. However, the subject of donor incentives has become a substantial “elephant in the room” as considerations of donor safety, transplant finances, and organ shortages have intersected. This month we examine several viewpoints on this issue, including a consensus opinion from the AST and ASTS (Salomon et al), an ethical discussion from Fisher et al, and a scholarly opinion piece from Delmonico et al. Cover design by Ken North, North Design Group.

The AJT Report

AJT Report May 2015While transplant professionals acknowledge the pitfalls of geographic disparity, not all patients understand this when they list at a center with a long wait time. In this issue of “The AJT Report,” we look at several patient resources for multilisting. Also this month, we look at a few transplant patients whose stories have been covered in the mainstream news media.
