Summary

The purpose of this work was to study the incidence, types, risk factors and causative organisms of bacterial infections in HCV Egyptian patients following Liver Transplantation. Moreover, to identify the emerging resistant strains and their proper antimicrobial therapy

Description

This prospective descriptive study has been done at Tropical Medicine department in the period between January 2013 till May 2014.

After the approval of the scientific and ethical committee of Ain Shams University Hospital, Patients with HCV positive end stage liver disease (ESLD) eligible for liver transplantation in Ain Shams Center for organs transplantation (ASCOT); Ain Shams University, (fulfilling the inclusion criteria) were included in the current study. Thirty five Patients were recruited and each one was followed up during a period of 3months following transplantation.

Included patients were divided into 2 groups:

Group 1 included patients who had a postoperative single episode of infection. Group 2 included those patients who had more than 1 episode of postoperative bacterial infection whom were further evaluated for the presence of emerging strains and/or antibiotic resistance.

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)

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.

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

The transference of a part of or an entire liver from one human or animal to another.
