Current status of combined liver-kidney transplantation.

Combined liver-kidney transplantation is a life-saving procedure for patients with end-stage liver disease and underlying chronic kidney disease, or prolonged acute kidney injury. Due to physiologic c...

Kidney graft outcomes in high immunological risk simultaneous liver-kidney transplants.

We carefully reviewed the recently published paper in Liver Transplantation by Piñeiro et al.(1). This article showed no association between pre-sensitization, defined as either presence of the donor...

Difference in Survival in Early Kidney after Liver Transplant Compared with Simultaneous Liver-Kidney Transplantation: Evaluating the Potential of the "Safety Net".

Decisions on who requires simultaneous liver-kidney (SLK) transplantation are controversial. United Network for Organ Sharing implemented a "safety net" in 2017 providing prioritization on the kidney ...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

The end-stage of CHRONIC RENAL INSUFFICIENCY. It is characterized by the severe irreversible kidney damage (as measured by the level of PROTEINURIA) and the reduction in GLOMERULAR FILTRATION RATE to less than 15 ml per min (Kidney Foundation: Kidney Disease Outcome Quality Initiative, 2002). These patients generally require HEMODIALYSIS or KIDNEY TRANSPLANTATION.

The transference of a kidney from one human or animal to another.

Final stage of a liver disease when the liver failure is irreversible and LIVER TRANSPLANTATION is needed.

General dysfunction of an organ occurring immediately following its transplantation. The term most frequently refers to renal dysfunction following KIDNEY TRANSPLANTATION.

A form of ischemia-reperfusion injury occurring in the early period following transplantation. Significant pathophysiological changes in MITOCHONDRIA are the main cause of the dysfunction. It is most often seen in the transplanted lung, liver, or kidney and can lead to GRAFT REJECTION.
