    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.

    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

Survival after liver transplantation is dependent on immediate graft function, which in turn is heavily impacted by organ preservation during cold storage. This month, AJT features a report from the European Liver Transplant Registry that shows significant differences in patient survival based on preservation solution use, with marked differential survival in settings that involve prolonged cold ischemic times or split liver grafts. See the article by Adam et al and an accompanying editorial by Zoe Stewart. Also see the What's Hot, What's New Basic Science and Clinical Science reports from the World Transplant Congress.

The AJT Report

This issue, “The AJT Report” takes a look at grassroots groups and organizations for med to improve the quality of life for transplant candidates, recipients, their families, and the families of organ and tissue donors. Also this month, we review the results of a study showing a higher risk of gestational hypertension and preeclampsia in living kidney donors who became pregnant.

Simple Steps Can Safeguard Against Ebola Transmission through Organ Donation
Published on 12/15/14

While serious infections can be transmitted from donated organs, the risk of passing Ebola virus disease from an organ donor to a recipient is extremely small. In a new editorial published in the American Journal of Transplantation, experts explain how simple assessments of donors can help ensure that the organ supply is safe, while having little impact on the donor pool.
