Trials describing 4-12 week courses of direct-acting anti-viral drugs (DAAs) to treat hepatitis C virus (HCV) transmission from infected donors to uninfected kidney transplant recipients (D+/R- transplants), may be limited in 'real-world' application by costs and delayed access to DAAs. We previously reported HCV transmission of 13% among D+/R- transplants with 2-4 day pangenotypic sofosbuvir/velpatasvir (SOF/VEL) peri-operative prophylaxis, where one patient with HCV transmission was a non-resp...

BACKGROUND Combined heart-liver transplantation (CHLT) is the only curative option for patients with concomitant pathology affecting the heart and liver. In some cases, the native livers of familial amyloidosis (FA) patients may be suitable for domino transplantation into other recipients. METHODS Retrospective analysis (2013 to 2019) of all CHLT at our center was performed. Continuous data were presented as mean with standard deviation and discrete variables as percentages. RESULTS Familial amy...

BACKGROUND Circulating donor-derived cell free DNA (cfDNA), a minimally invasive diagnostic tool for kidney transplant rejection, was validated using traditional histology. The Molecular Microscope (MMDx) tissue gene expression platform may provide increased precision to traditional histology. METHODS In this single-center prospective study of 208 biopsies (median=5.8 months) post-transplant, we report on the calibration of cfDNA with simultaneous biopsy assessments using MMDx and histology by A...

Background: Trauma victims with liver lacerations in the hilum are typically excluded from liver donation. We report a case of a successful liver transplant from a deceased donor with a grade 4 hilar liver laceration. Case Presentation: We used a liver with a high-grade laceration from a 28-year-old brain-dead traffic accident victim. The liver had grade IV lacerations in the right and caudate lobes. In situ split liver technique was applied to control the lacerations after an intraoperative cho...

Background Here, we present our initial experience with a prospective protocol of belatacept conversion in patients with chronic active antibody-mediated rejection (caAMR) and a high degree of chronicity at the time of diagnosis. Methods We converted 19 patients (mean age, 45 ± 12 y) with biopsy-proven caAMR from tacrolimus to belatacept at a median of 44 months post-kidney transplant. Results At a median of 29 months (interquartile range, 16-46 mo) postconversion, death-censored graft and patie...

Abstract Background & Aims Vibration-controlled transient elastography (VCTE) is a non-invasive tool for detecting hepatic steatosis and fibrosis in patients who have not received liver transplants. We aimed to evaluate the diagnostic performance of VCTE in detection of hepatic steatosis and fibrosis in patients who have undergone liver transplantation. Methods We performed a prospective study of 99 liver transplant recipients assessed by VCTE using a standard protocol. Controlled attenuation pa...

The prevalence of coronary artery disease (CAD) is high among patients with cirrhosis; however, the impact of it on cardiovascular disease (CVD) is not known. The aim of the current study was to evaluate CVD events in patients with cirrhosis and impact of cirrhosis on biomarkers of atherogenesis. The study included 682 patients with decompensated cirrhosis referred for liver transplantation (LT) evaluation between 2010 and 2017. All patients were followed until they experienced a CVD event, non-...

Burnout among surgeons has been attributed to increased workload and decreased autonomy. Although prior studies have examined burnout among transplant surgeons, no studies have evaluated burnout in abdominal transplant surgery fellows. The objective of our study was to identify predictors of burnout and understand its impact on personal and patient care during fellowship. A survey was sent to all abdominal transplant surgery fellows in an American Society of Transplant Surgeons-accredited fellow...
