kidney recipients experienced more wound complications. From our single-centre data, we conclude that night-time kidney transplantation does not increase the risk of adverse events or predispose the patient to a worse outcome. Nevertheless, further research is required to explore the effect of fatigue on nocturnal surgical performance.
Data are lacking on RSB intensity and outcomes after pediatric heart transplantation. PHTS centers received a survey on RSB practices from 2005 to present. PHTS data were obtained for 2010-2013 and integrated with center-matched survey responses for analysis. Survey response rate was 82.6% (38/46). Centers were classified as low-, moderate-, and hi...
Third and fourth kidney transplants can be performed safely with similar outcomes to 1st and 2nd transplants. Kidney retransplantation from antibody-incompatible donors may be appropriate for highly sensitized patients.
HLA matching and mismatching, while inversely related, are not exact opposites. Here we determined the independent effects of HLA matching and mismatching on outcomes in deceased donor kidney transplant recipients. The United Network for Organ Sharing database (1995-2012) was utilized and analyzed for delayed graft function, one-year acute rejectio...

In pediatric kidney transplant recipients receiving tacrolimus- and mycophenolate-based immunosuppression, steroid avoidance can be safely practiced in children with immunologic risk factors.

Pancreatic allograft thrombosis (PAT) remains the leading cause of nonimmunologic graft failure. Here, we propose a new computed tomography (CT) grading system of PAT to identify risk factors for allograft loss and outline a management algorithm by retrospective review of consecutive pancreatic transplantations between 2009 and 2014. Triple-phase C...

This calculator provides useful information to donors, candidates, and physicians of estimated outcomes and potentially in allowing candidates to choose among several living donors. It may also help inform candidates with compatible donors on the advisability of joining a KPD program.
