    Fever, Cough, and Right Lower Quadrant Abdominal Pain in a Liver Transplant Recipient

    (Left) Computed tomography (CT) of abdomen/pelvis with inflammatory changes, including necrotic lymph nodes and small abscess in right lower quadrant. (Right) CT of thorax with multifocal pneumonia and left upper lobe consolidation.

  • Intracaval Mass Discovered at the Time of Liver Procurement

    Intracaval Mass Discovered at the Time of Liver Procurement

    (A) Mass encountered in the inferior vena cava of a donor liver allograft. (B) Demonstration of the mobility and attachment of the mass to the wall of the inferior vena cava.

  • Fatal Complication of Recent Liver Transplant

    Fatal Complication of Recent Liver Transplant

    Maculopapular rash. The rash was also present on the chest, abdomen, bilateral thighs, and upper extremities.

  • Critical Incidental Ultrasound Finding in the Postoperative Renal Transplant Patient

    Critical Incidental Ultrasound Finding in the Postoperative Renal Transplant Patient

    Doppler ultrasonography of the renal allograft.

  • 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.

Current Issue Highlights

In June, the White House opened its doors to the organ transplant community, announcing a major effort to improve donor organ availability and reduce the wait time for people awaiting transplantation. This month, we focus on this important event with a special AJT Report, and an editorial from the leadership of the AST and ASTS. We also highlight a study from Axelrod et al showing the wide degree of variability in immunosuppressive drug choice following renal transplant. After 60 years of clinical transplantation, we still have no true standard of care. Cover design by Lauren Halligan, Department of Surgery, Duke University.

White House Holds Summit on Organ Transplant

In June, the White House announced plans to invest nearly $200 million to increase organ donation and decrease the size of the transplant waiting list in the United States. In this issue of “The AJT Report,” we review the plans and discuss how they may impact the field of transplantation.

Rapid Restoration of Vascularity and Oxygenation in Mouse and Human Islets Transplanted to Omentum May Contribute to Their Superior Function Compared to Intraportally Transplanted Islets
D. Espes, J. Lau, M. Quach, S. Ullsten, G. Christoffersson, and P.O. Carlsson
Published online: June 2016


Video S1: Real-time in vivo confocal imaging of functional blood falow in mouse islets transplanted to the omentum 14-days posttransplantation. The islets express green fluorescent protein and the blood flow and vasculature (red) were visualized using intraarterially injected rhodamine-dextran. Imaging was performed using a Zeiss Plan-Apo 40×/1.0 W objective on a Zeiss 5 Live line-scanning confocal microscope..
