- The link between IFN-Î³ and allograft arteriopathy: is the answer NO? Mitchell, Richard N.; Lichtman, Andrew H. // Journal of Clinical Investigation;Sep2004, Vol. 114 Issue 6, p762
Vascularized organ transplants often fail because of smooth muscle cell migration and proliferation in the intima of graft arteries, leading to progressive lumenal narrowing and resultant ischemic damage. Graft arterial disease is caused by IFN-Î³ secreted by alloreactive T cells. New evidence...

Objective: to evaluate the frequency and factors associated with vascular complications after pediatric liver transplantation. Method: risk factors were evaluated in 99 patients under 18 years of age with chronic liver disease who underwent deceased donor liver transplantation (DDLT) between...
- Renal Allograft Implantation on Prosthetic Vascular Grafts: Short- and Long-term Results. Patrono, Damiano; Verhelst, Robert; Buemi, Antoine; Goffette, Pierre; Pauw, Luc; Kanaan, Nada; Goffin, Eric; Meyer, Martine; Mourad, Michel // World Journal of Surgery;Jul2013, Vol. 37 Issue 7, p1727
Background: Arterial anastomosis in transplant patients with severe aortic and iliac atheromatosis is technically challenging and may jeopardize the success of the transplantation procedure. The aim of this retrospective study was to report short- and long-term results of a consecutive series of...
- Feasibility and Effectiveness of a New Algorithm in Preventing Hepatic Artery Thrombosis after Liver Transplantation. Müller, Sascha A.; Schmied, Bruno M.; Mehrabi, Arianeb; Welsch, Thilo; Schemmer, Peter; Hinz, Ulf; Weitz, Jürgen; Werner, Jens; Büchler, Markus W.; Schmidt, Jan // Journal of Gastrointestinal Surgery;Apr2009, Vol. 13 Issue 4, p702
Introduction The incidence of hepatic artery thrombosis (HAT) after liver transplantation (LTx) is up to 9% in adult recipients. Material and Methods To minimize HAT, we developed an algorithm that we have routinely applied since 2001. The algorithm is a cascade of potentially necessary...
