    Open-chest Epicardial Approach to Transcatheter Pulmonary Artery Stenting Following Heart Transplantation in an Infant

    CONGENITAL HEART DISEASE, Issue 1 2007
    Todd M. Gudausky MD
    ABSTRACT We describe an open-chest epicardial approach to transcatheter pulmonary artery stenting in a critically ill infant following heart transplantation. Technical considerations, indications, and feasibility are discussed. This case provides another example of the value of a "hybrid" approach (combining surgery and interventional cardiology) to complex congenital heart disease. [source]


    Bridging Patients to Cardiac Transplantation

    CONGESTIVE HEART FAILURE, Issue 5 2000
    Michael B. Higginbotham MD
    Potential recipients of heart transplants have the most advanced form of congestive heart failure, in which standard therapy fails to maintain clinical stability. In the absence of guidelines derived from evidence obtained in clinical trials, caring for these patients becomes a challenge. A successful approach requires the proper coordination of surgical and nonsurgical strategies, including revascularization and valvular surgery as well as mechanical ventricular support and medical strategies. Intensive medical therapy is the most commonly used approach for prolonged bridging to transplantation. Although carefully individualized regimens are necessary to achieve desired goals, most centers adopt a fairly standardized approach involving vasodilators, diuretics, and inotropic support. Bridging patients with cardiac decompensation to transplantation presents a major therapeutic challenge. Appropriate strategies will maximize patients' chances that the bridge from decompensation to transplantation remains intact. [source]

    Use of a Living Dermal Equivalent for a Refractory Abdominal Defect after Pediatric Multivisceral Transplantation

    DERMATOLOGIC SURGERY, Issue 9 2004
    Carlos A. Charles MD
    Background. Primary closure is not always possible after pediatric multivisceral transplantation. Reepithelialization may require extended periods of postoperative time, which can be associated with significant morbidity Objective. The objective was to accelerate secondary wound closure thereby minimizing infection or further complications in a pediatric multivisceral transplant patient. Methods. Five applications of human fibroblast-derived dermis (Dermagraft, Smith and Nephew) were applied to the postsurgical defect of a pediatric multivisceral transplant patient over the course of 8 months. Routine wound care and observation was performed between human fibroblast-derived dermis applications. Results. Human fibroblast-derived dermis stimulated healing and accelerated reepithelialization. Signs of clinical rejection or infection were not observed. Conclusion. Reepithelialization can be aided in the postoperative period in pediatric multivisceral transplant patients with human fibroblast-derived dermis, thereby helping to deter complications associated with secondary wound closure. We have illustrated the successful use of a human fibroblast-derived dermis as an adjunct for wound healing in a complicated surgical defect. [source]


    Follicular Unit Transplantation: The Option of Beard Construction in Eunuchoid Men

    DERMATOLOGIC SURGERY, Issue 9 2002
    Kayihan, ahinoglu MD
    background. Psychosocial problems are very common in eunuchoids and may be related to the impact of underlying disorders on the physical appearance which makes them unable to overcome the sense of inferiority of childhood. A beardless patient treated with follicular unit transplantation (FUT) is reported here. objective. Such patients desire to get rid of a boyish appearance and want to achieve a masculine appearance. One of the easiest methods to achieve this goal is FUT. methods. By using an 18-gauge needle, the recipient bed was prepared under local anesthesia after premedication, and 1200 one- or two-hair micrografts were transplanted to the perioral (goatee) and its extensions to the sideburns. results. After completion of the procedure to the planned area, we achieved restoration of a masculine appearance which made the patient seem quite satisfied. conclusion. The process of beard reconstruction is time consuming and tedious, but highly effective. [source]


    Follicular Unit Extraction: Minimally Invasive Surgery for Hair Transplantation

    DERMATOLOGIC SURGERY, Issue 8 2002
    William R. Rassman MD
    background. Follicular Unit Transplantation (FUT) is performed using large numbers of naturally occuring individual follicular units obtained by single-strip harvesting and stereo-microscopic dissection. Donor wound scarring from strip excision, although an infrequent complication, still concerns enough patients that an alternative solution is warranted. objective. The purpose of this paper is to introduce Follicular Unit Extraction (The FOX Procedure), in which individual follicular units are removed directly from the donor region through very small punch excisions, and to describe a test (The FOX Test) that determines which patients are candidates for this procedure. This paper explores the nuances, limitations, and practical aspects of Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE). methods. FUE was performed using 1-mm punches to separate follicular units from the surrounding tissue down to the level of the mid dermis. This was followed by extraction of the follicular units with forceps. The FOX test was developed to determine which patients would be good candidates for the procedure. The test was performed on 200 patients. Representative patients who were FOX-positive and FOX-negative were studied histologically. results. The FOX Test can determine which patients are suitable candidates for FUE. Approximately 25% of the patients biopsied were ideal candidates for FUE and 35% of the patients biopsied were good candidates for extraction. conclusion. FUE is a minimally invasive approach to hair transplantation that obviates the need for a linear donor incision. This technique can serve as an important alternative to traditional hair transplantation in certain patients. [source]

    Autologous Vein Transplantation for Correction of Dermal Atrophic Changes

    DERMATOLOGIC SURGERY, Issue 5 2002
    Guillermo Blugerman MD
    background. Many filling substances are useful in correcting dermal defects and/or wrinkles. objective. To describe a novel autologous dermal implant. method. Unwanted leg/hand veins and/or varicose veins are extracted in an ambulatory phlebectomy technique. The veins are then either chopped into pieces and injected into the defect or inserted whole after cellular destruction with 23.4% hypertonic saline. results. Excellent correction of dermal defect has been obtained with long-lasting and possible permanent results. No complications have occurred. conclusion. Autologous vein collagen transplantation can correct dermal defects with long-lasting and perhaps permanent results. [source]


    Laser-Assisted Hair Transplantation: Histologic Comparison Between CO2 and Ho:YAG Lasers

    DERMATOLOGIC SURGERY, Issue 4 2001
    Eugene A. Chu MD
    Background. Various laser wavelengths and devices have been advocated for use in the creation of recipient channels during hair transplant surgery, including flash-scanned CO2, Ho:YAG (, = 2.12 ,m), and Er:YAG (, = 2.94 ,m). Objective. To determine the tissue injury caused by flash-scanned CO2 and pulsed Ho:YAG lasers during the creation of hair transplant recipient channels and to assess the efficacy of the Ho:YAG laser. Methods. Recipient channels were created in vivo in human scalp tissue using both lasers, and were excised and prepared for histologic examination. Optical micrometry of tissue sections was used to assess thermal injury. Results. The Ho:YAG laser created jagged, irregular-shaped channels with larger zones of thermal injury (superficial deepithelialization, thermal necrosis, and thermal damage). In contrast, the CO2 laser produced well-defined cylindrically shaped channels free of cellular debris with minimal epithelial disruption and significantly less lateral thermal injury. Conclusion. Given that the Ho:YAG produced larger regions of thermal injury and recipient channels that were unacceptable for graft, the CO2 laser remains the better choice for the creation of recipient channels during hair transplant surgery. However, ongoing research will be necessary to determine the optimal laser wavelength and/or devices for this procedure. [source]


    Transplanted neurons form both normal and ectopic projections in the adult brain

    DEVELOPMENTAL NEUROBIOLOGY, Issue 14 2008
    Sanjay S.P. Magavi
    Abstract Transplantation of embryonic or stem cell derived neurons has been proposed as a potential therapy for several neurological diseases. Previous studies reported that transplanted embryonic neurons extended long-distance projections through the adult brain exclusively to appropriate targets. We transplanted E14 lateral ganglionic eminence (LGE) and E15 cortical precursors from embryonic mice into the intact adult brain and analyzed the projections formed by transplanted neurons. In contrast to previous studies, we found that transplanted embryonic neurons formed distinct long-distance projections to both appropriate and ectopic targets. LGE neurons transplanted into the adult striatum formed projections not only to the substantia nigra, a normal target, but also to the claustrum and through all layers of fronto-orbital cortex, regions that do not normally receive striatal input. In some cases, inappropriate projections outnumbered appropriate projections. To examine the relationship between the donor cells and host brain in establishing the pattern of projections, we transplanted cortical precursors into the adult striatum. Despite their heterotopic location, cortical precursors not only predominantly formed projections appropriate for cortical neurons, but they also formed projections to inappropriate targets. Transplantation of GFP-expressing cells into ,-galactosidase-expressing mice confirmed that the axonal projections were not created by the fusion of donor and host cells. These results suggest that repairing the brain using transplantation may be more complicated than previously expected, because exuberant ectopic projections could result in brain dysfunction. Understanding the signals regulating axonal extension in the adult brain will be necessary to harness stem cells or embryonic neurons for effective neuronal-replacement therapies. 2008 Wiley Periodicals, Inc.

    Tricuspid Regurgitation after Orthotopic Heart Transplantation

    ECHOCARDIOGRAPHY, Issue 1 2010
    Nishant Kalra M.D.
    Background: Tricuspid regurgitation (TR) is a relatively common abnormality in normal adults as well as after orthotopic heart transplantation (OHT). A few studies have shown reduction in the incidence of TR after OHT by total bicaval surgical anastomosis technique. Other studies reported no significant difference in the rates of TR between the standard and bicaval techniques. Objective: Evaluate and compare the degree of TR after OHT by standard and bicaval anastomosis techniques. Method: Echocardiograms from the first 56 consecutive patients that had the total bicaval surgical technique performed were retrospectively reviewed and compared with the last 57 consecutive patients who had the standard biatrial technique performed. Patients with adequate two-dimensional and Doppler echocardiograms were included. Results: No statistical difference was observed for each grade of TR at both early and late time points. No significant difference was observed between the TR velocities of both biatrial and bicaval anastomosis patients at different periods. Conclusion: There appears to be no difference between the TR severity and TR velocity at early and late time points regardless of anastomotic technique. (Echocardiography 2010;27:1-4) [source]


    The Role of Intraoperative Transesophageal Echocardiography in Heart Transplantation

    ECHOCARDIOGRAPHY, Issue 7 2002
    Paval Romano M.D.
    The number of centers that perform heart transplants has increased rapidly in recent years. Although transthoracic and transesophageal echocardiography (TTE and TEE) are utilized frequently to diagnose and manage cardiac complications commonly found in this population postoperatively, little has been written about the routine use of intraoperative TEE. Intraoperative echo is ideally suited to identify acute complications during cardiac transplantation. This can include immediate signs of rejection, valvular abnormalities, and mechanical complications related to the surgical procedure. Many of these patients might require ventricular assist devices (VAD) to provide circulatory support, and intraoperative TEE can be used to verify correct positioning of the VAD hardware. In addition, many of the chronic complications that patients with heart transplants are at risk for may be serious yet asymptomatic. Therefore, a high quality, complete intraoperative echocardiographic study might serve as an important baseline to compare postoperative changes. [source]


    Efficacy of single-agent bortezomib vs. single-agent thalidomide in patients with relapsed or refractory multiple myeloma: a systematic comparison

    EUROPEAN JOURNAL OF HAEMATOLOGY, Issue 2 2007
    H. Miles Prince
    Abstract Objective:, To conduct a systematic review of the efficacy of single-agent bortezomib vs. single-agent thalidomide in patients with relapsed/refractory multiple. Methods:, Publications in English from 1966 to June 2005 (MEDLINE, EMBASE, Cochrane library), publication reference lists, Janssen-Cilag data-on-file and abstracts from recent multiple myeloma conferences were reviewed. Prospective studies containing at least a single arm of either treatment group with n,30 were included. Studies adding dexamethasone for non-responders were excluded. Statistical pooling was performed for response rate and overallsurvival. Results:, One bortezomib study (n = 333, NEJM 2005, 352; 2487,98) and 15 thalidomide (n = 1007) studies met these criteria and were included. Patient baseline characteristics including age, gender, IgG : IgA, disease duration and beta-2 microglobulin were well matched except that 48% of bortezomib patients had received prior thalidomide. Response rate, defined as serum M-protein reduction ,50%, was 53% for patients receiving bortezomib vs. 32% for thalidomide (P < 0.001, n = 10 studies). Response rate determined by European Group for Blood and Marrow Transplantation (EBMT) criteria was 41% for patients receiving bortezomib vs. 22% for thalidomide (P < 0.001, n = 4 studies). Conclusion:, Bortezomib was associated with a significantly higher response rate and complete remission rate using both M-protein and EBMT criteria. [source]


    Transplantation of umbilical cord blood-derived endothelial progenitor cells: a promising method of therapeutic revascularisation

    EUROPEAN JOURNAL OF HAEMATOLOGY, Issue 1 2006
    Lei Zhang
    Abstract:, Therapeutic neovascularisation by endothelial progenitor cells (EPCs) mediated vascular regeneration is becoming a novel option for the treatment of ischaemic diseases. Recently, human umbilical cord blood (CB) has been found to contain a large number of EPCs and transplantation of CB EPCs led to a successful salvage of the ischaemic limbs through improvement in blood perfusion, indicating the feasibility of using CB cells for therapeutic revascularisation. This review will summarise recent studies in therapeutic revascularisation using CB cells and discuss the potential clinical utilisation of CB cells in ischaemic diseases. [source]
