Population Pharmacokinetics of Fentanyl in Patients Undergoing Living Donor Liver Transplantation
The aim of this study was to characterize pharmacokinetics of fentanyl during and after Living Donor Liver Transplantation (LDLT), using population pharmacokinetic analysis with non linear mixed effects modeling.
Patients received an initial intravenous bolus of fentanyl 100 μg and infused at variable rates ranging from 250 to 400 μg/hr.
Arterial blood samples (3ml) were taken immediately before the start of infusion (baseline), and at scheduled time which were coincident with laboratory tests during surgery as follows. In pre-anhepatic phase, blood were taken at 10min, 30min, 1hr, 3hr, 5hr until clamping of the hepatic blood supply and venous drainage, after the star of anhepatic phase, blood were taken at 5 min, 10 min, 30 min, 60 min, 90 min, 2hr until the vessels were reconnected to new liver. In neo-hepatic phase, blood were taken at 5min, 10min, 30min, 60min, 90min, 2hr, 3hr, 5hr until fentanyl-infusion stop, and at 0hr, 1hr, 3hr, 5hr, 8hr, 12hr, 24hr immediately after the stop of infusion. Samples were collected into tubes containing heparin as an anticoagulant and immediately placed on ice. After centrifugation for 8 min at 1800 g, the plasma was transferred to a cryovial and stored at -70°C until assay.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions
An organism that, as a result of transplantation of donor tissue or cells, consists of two or more cell lines descended from at least two zygotes. This state may result in the induction of donor-specific TRANSPLANTATION TOLERANCE.
Physiologic methyl radical donor involved in enzymatic transmethylation reactions and present in all living organisms. It possesses anti-inflammatory activity and has been used in treatment of chronic liver disease. (From Merck, 11th ed)
A potent narcotic analgesic, abuse of which leads to habituation or addiction. It is primarily a mu-opioid agonist. Fentanyl is also used as an adjunct to general anesthetics, and as an anesthetic for induction and maintenance. (From Martindale, The Extra Pharmacopoeia, 30th ed, p1078)
An organism whose body contains cell populations of different genotypes as a result of the TRANSPLANTATION of donor cells after sufficient ionizing radiation to destroy the mature recipient's cells which would otherwise reject the donor cells.
End Stage Liver Disease
Final stage of a liver disease when the liver failure is irreversible and LIVER TRANSPLANTATION is needed.

There are two principal purposes of this study: 1) to determine whether it is more beneficial for a liver transplant recipient candidate to pursue a living donor liver transplant (LDLT) o...
The purpose of this study is to measure the amount of MMF and tacrolimus concentration in the blood at a given time. Currently MMF is ordered as a set dose and tacrolimus is given based o...
The aim of this study is to compare immunosuppression protocol of tacrolimus + MMF with that of tacrolimus + steroid for preventing recurrence of hepatitis C after living donor liver trans...
This 1-year project is intended to study the hemodynamic changes of poratal and hepatic artery during living related liver transplantation. We hypothesize that after right hepatectomy for...
Living donor liver transplantation (LDLT) is associated with a low but finite and well documented risk of donor morbidity and mortality, therefore organizations and individuals involved in this activi...
The worldwide shortage of adequate donor organs implies that living donor liver transplantation represents a valuable alternative to cadaveric transplantation. In addition to the complex surgical proc...
