Cover story: Renal maturation combined to ischemia time are the major factors affecting outcome after transplantation of En-bloc kidneys from very young pediatric donors in adult recipients. However, by following a uniform strategy that takes into account the specificities of this particular type of donors, results comparable to more advanced age donors can be achieved. View this paper.

Open Access Case Report

An Unusual Case of Recurrent Capillary Leak Syndrome Following Lung Transplantation

Received: 24 April 2020;  Published: 15 June 2020;  doi: 10.21926/obm.transplant.2002113

Abstract

Systemic capillary leak syndrome is a disorder characterized by recurrent, life-threatening episodes of acute capillary hyperpermeability resulting in edema and hypovolemic shock. We report a case of systemic capillary leak syndrome in a lung transplant recipient who developed recurrent episodes of [...]

Birth Tissue-Derived Mesenchymal Stromal/Stem Cell Isolation and Assessment

Received: 25 September 2019;  Published: 09 June 2020;  doi: 10.21926/obm.transplant.2002112

Abstract

Mesenchymal Stromal/Stem Cells (MSCs) were originally discovered in the 1970s. MSCs are considered a multipotent population that retain tri-lineage differentiation. These cells can be sourced from a variety of tissues, including bone marrow, adipose, molar pulp, and birth tissues. Historically varyi [...]

Multidrug-Resistant Bacterial Infections before and after Liver Transplantation

Received: 29 March 2020;  Published: 18 May 2020;  doi: 10.21926/obm.transplant.2002110

Abstract

Bacterial infection represents a common event in the natural history of cirrhosis, especially in patients with end-stage liver disease. An episode of bacterial infection may significantly modify a patient’s outcome in the setting of liver transplantation (LT) by impairing hepatic and extrahepatic or [...]

Donor Age and Ischemia Time Are Independent Factors Affecting Graft Survival after En Bloc Kidney Transplantation from Donors Less than Three Years of Age

Received: 13 January 2020;  Published: 13 May 2020;  doi: 10.21926/obm.transplant.2002109

Abstract

This study aimed to investigate the outcomes of transplantation from donors aged less than three years in a single-center consecutive series. A total of 52 en bloc kidney graft transplantations were performed. In 22 cases, organs were procured from donors aged less than one year (group 1). In 30 cas [...]

Clinical Approach to the Management of Infections before and after Liver Transplantation

Received: 14 February 2020;  Published: 11 May 2020;  doi: 10.21926/obm.transplant.2002108

Abstract

The infectious complications before and after liver transplant (LT) are affected by the severity of liver disease and immunosuppression intensity after transplantation. Both cirrhosis and immunosuppression contribute to dysfunction of defensive mechanisms of the host. When a patient is evaluated for [...]

Genomic Biomarker Surveillance in the Care of Solid Organ Transplant Recipients: An Update for the General Clinician during the Coronavirus (CoVid-19) Pandemic

Received: 27 March 2020;  Published: 06 May 2020;  doi: 10.21926/obm.transplant.2002107

Abstract

Biomarker surveillance after solid organ transplant is an advancing field with promise for further elucidation through high-throughput analyses and “omics” technologies. To date, Gene Expression Profiling (GEP; AlloMapâ) is the only FDA-cleared genomic assay as surveillance for moderate-severe TCMR [...]
