Clin J Am Soc Nephrol 2019 Apr 11;14(4):597-608. Epub 2019 Mar 11.

Department of Surgery and

In the past decade, there have been increasing efforts to better define and quantify the short- and long-term risks of living kidney donation. Recent studies have expanded upon the previous literature by focusing on outcomes that are important to potential and previous donors, applying unique databases and/or registries to follow large cohorts of donors for longer periods of time, and comparing outcomes with healthy nondonor controls to estimate attributable risks of donation. Leading outcomes important to living kidney donors include kidney health, surgical risks, and psychosocial effects of donation. Read More

Enteric conversion after bladder-drained pancreas transplantation is not associated with worse allograft survival.

Am J Transplant 2019 Mar 5. Epub 2019 Mar 5.

Division of Transplantation, Department of Surgery, University of Wisconsin-Madison School of Medicine and Public Health, Madison, Wisconsin.

In the early experience of pancreas transplantation, bladder drainage was favored, but it often caused urologic, metabolic, and infectious complications that necessitated conversion to enteric drainage. Long-term graft survival after enteric conversion and the impact of time interval from transplantation to enteric conversion on graft survival is poorly understood. We studied all bladder-drained first-time pancreas transplantations performed at the University of Wisconsin from 1985 to 2000. Read More

Surgical Technique Notes of Arterial Vascular Reconstruction During Kidney Transplantation: Personal Experience and Literature Review.

Transplant Proc 2019 Jan - Feb;51(1):128-131. Epub 2018 Jun 28.

General Surgery and Organ Transplantation Unit, Department of Surgery, Sapienza University of Rome, Rome, Italy.

Background: Arterial vascular anomalies in patients undergoing kidney transplantation (KT) are correlated with a higher incidence of early surgical complications, potentially causing graft loss. Arterial reconstruction allows patients to overcome these surgical challenges, thus minimizing the risk of poor outcomes. The aim of the present study is to retrospectively investigate the safety and effectiveness of the multiple arterial reconstruction technique with a Teflon patch in case of an unavailable aortic patch: to do so, surgical complications, graft function, and patient survival were evaluated.

Impact of 3 Major Maintenance Immunosuppressive Protocols on Long-term Clinical Outcomes: Result of a Large Multicenter Italian Cohort Study Including 5635 Renal Transplant Recipients.

Transplant Proc 2019 Jan - Feb;51(1):136-139. Epub 2018 Jun 28.

Renal Unit, Department of Medicine, University Hospital of Verona, Italy. Electronic address:

Background: Although optimization of immunosuppressive schemes in renal transplantation have minimized acute posttransplant complications, long-term outcomes are still not optimal and most of the chronic graft damage is drug-related. Therefore, to define the best long-term maintenance immunosuppressive regimen is of major importance in renal transplantation. To assess this objective, we undertook a large, multicenter cohort study in Italy. Read More

FTO rs9939609 Gene Polymorphism and Obesity: Lack of Association in Kidney Transplantation.

Transplant Proc 2019 Jan - Feb;51(1):164-166. Epub 2018 Jun 30.

Transplant Unit, S. Salvatore Hospital, L'Aquila, Italy; Department of Clinical Sciences and Biotechnology, University of L'Aquila, L'Aquila, Italy.

The fat mass and obesity-associated (FTO) gene is one of the most important obesity susceptibility genes. Some FTO gene polymorphisms have been associated with obesity, diabetes, and hypertension, all conditions for which, after transplant, there is increased susceptibility, due to effects of immunosuppressive regimens. To evaluate whether FTO could be a candidate for targeted preventive intervention in the transplant setting, we investigated whether the common genetic variation, FTO rs9939609T>A, could affect weight gain and risk of cardiovascular complications in kidney transplantation.

Ethical Issues in the Use of Suboptimal Kidneys for Transplants: An Italian Point of View.

Transplant Proc 2019 Jan - Feb;51(1):106-110. Epub 2018 Jun 30.

Operative Unit of General Surgery and Kidney Transplantation, Advanced Biomedical Science Department, University Federico II of Naples, Naples, Italy.

The shortage of organs leads to the need for utilizing suboptimal kidneys for transplantation. The distinction between optimal, marginal, and suboptimal kidneys leads surgeons to face not only technical problems but also ethical and legal issues related to clinical advantages offered by the transplant of a nonstandard kidney and the acquisition of consent. Between 1999 and 2015, we performed 658 transplants, 49 (7. Read More
