    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.

    Photographs of the patient's left shoulder lesion (A) and chest lesion (B).

  • 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

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

    Chest X-ray showing the placement of the LVAD.

  • Emesis Following Laparoscopic Left Donor Nephrectomy

    Emesis Following Laparoscopic Left Donor Nephrectomy

    CT with oral contrast, sagittal view.

  • 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

Despite exceptional advances in immune management, most transplanted organs succumb over time to some form of progressive fibrosis. This month, Peter Boor and Jürgen Floege provide a comprehensive review of renal allograft fibrosis, highlighting key mechanisms of disease, therapeutic targets, and clinical issues emerging in this unsolved problem. Also see the meeting report on best practices in live kidney donation. Cover design by Ken North, North Design Group.

The AJT Report

AJT April 2015Pancreas transplants in the United States have declined by more than 30% over the last decade, despite significant improvements in outcomes. “The AJT Report” examines the many reasons why this procedure isn't getting the attention it should. Also in this issue, a new report from OPTN/UNOS indicates that more than two million life years have been saved through transplantation over the past 25 years.
