As the number of short term survivors of pediatric intestine transplantation increases, a better understanding of the unique aspects of health related quality of life (HRQOL) after intestine transplantation can improve the care of the patient and his family. This single center, prospective analysis of HRQOL of pediatric intestine transplant recipients and their parents compared […]

An increasing number of pediatric and adult recipients of intestine transplantation require retransplantation due to graft failure. This analysis of UNOS database is the largest report to date of patient and graft survival after isolated intestine and combined liver-intestine retransplantation. Patient survival after isolated intestine retransplantation was inferior compared to primary transplantation in adults (5y […]

Antibody mediated rejection (AMR) is a well described phenomenon in kidney and heart transplant but its presence and impact on intestinal transplantation is unclear. AMR might contribute to the severity and relatively high rate of steroid resistant acute rejection in intestinal transplantation. This prospective study measured and correlated donor specific antibodies (DSA) levels to episodes […]

Patients listed for liver-intestine transplant experience higher mortality while waiting for an organ compared to patients listed for liver transplant only. As a result UNOS implemented a new policy in 2005 and revised it again in 2007, in which adult and pediatric patients waiting for intestine-liver transplant are granted extra MELD and PELD points to […]
