  • 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.

    A 60-Year-Old Man With Necrotic Skin Lesions After Heart Transplantation

    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

The first interaction between a donor and recipient occurs at the vascular endothelium. Indeed, the field of vascular biology has become increasingly defined as a bi-directional interface involving both afferent and efferent signals that markedly influence a transplanted organ's integrity from the minute of implantation through decades of subsequent function. This month, Abrahimi et al present a masterful review of this important topic that shines light on the multiple pathways and responses driving organ health and disease. Cover design by Ken North, North Design Group.
