Book Description :

In the past, liver resections and liver transplantations were performed by different surgical teams, with very little interplay between the two. However, the evolution toward more complex operations called for an increasingly intense interaction between these surgical techniques: split liver and living donor liver transplantation have become popular in the transplant community, utilizing the Coinaud segmental anatomy in a very sophisticated way, while portal and arterial resection and reconstruction have become indispensable methods for treating Klatskin tumors infiltrating the hepatic hilum. This book offers a complete overview of the connections between liver transplantation and hepatobiliary surgery. It focuses on ex situ techniques for resection of tumors at the suprahepatic confluence, with or without venous reconstruction, and on total vascular exclusion of the liver with the aid of a venovenous bypass that should be a surgical option for referral centers in hepatopancreatobiliary surgery. By taking into consideration the development of minimally invasive liver surgery, it will introduce readers to a variety of new perspectives such as: vascular exclusion techniques with or without extracorporeal circulation, hemodynamic implications and lessons learned from liver transplant surgery, and technical details on pediatric transplantation and its informative role in modern biliary tract surgery.

Book Description :

Liver transplant: Surgery to eliminate a diseased liver and update it with a healthful liver (or a part of one) from a donor. The most commonplace reasons for liver transplantation in youngsters is biliary atresia (a disorder in which the ducts that carry bile out of the liver are missing or damaged) while in adults the maximum common reason for a liver transplant is cirrhosis (a ailment wherein healthy liver cells are killed and changed with scar tissue).There is no powerful remedy for stop-stage liver disorder aside from a transplant. The existence of a person with kidney failure can be prolonged via dialysis and someone with a failing heart can now and again be sustained with the aid of an implantable pump, however there is no machines that may take over the liver's functions. Until such machines can be devised, until an animal liver can update a human one or till new livers can be grown from stem cells, there is general dependence on liver transplants.

Book Description :

This book is the first to provide balanced examination of both pediatric liver disease and liver transplantation – two topics that are inherently related, given that most chronic liver disorders eventually require organ replacement. The different forms of liver disease encountered in the pediatric age group are first discussed in a series of disease-specific chapters that have a reader-friendly, uniform structure covering pathophysiology, diagnostic and treatment algorithms, clinical cases, and transition to adult care. Key topics in the field of liver transplantation are then addressed. Examples include indications and contraindications, surgical techniques and complications, immunosuppression, in pediatric liver transplantation, acute and chronic rejection and allograft dysfunction, and CMV and EBV infection in transplant recipients, long-term graft injury and tolerance. A section on pediatric hepatology across the world includes chapters presenting the features and management of pediatric liver disease in South-America, Africa and Asia. A closing section considers what the future holds for pediatric liver disease and its management, including novel genetic testing, cell therapy and gene therapy. Pediatric Hepatology and Liver Transplantation will be of value for a range of practitioners, from residents making their first approach to pediatric liver disease through to specialists working in transplantation centers.

This is the first surgical atlas demonstrating preparatory steps by photographs! These operations are shown: organ donation (liver-kidney, liver-pancreas-kidney, kidney), orthotopic liver transplantation, segmental liver transplantation (preparation of a left liver graft, preparation of a left lateral liver graft, split liver preparation), living-related liver donation, heterotopic liver transplantation, pancreas transplantation, and kidney transplantation. The photographs explain each important preparatory step, as well as potential variants and possible pitfalls. For each operation a checklist for preoperative preparation and postoperative care is included to allow a quick survey of the pre- and postoperative periods. The book clearly explains all details of surgical technique and anatomy. The authors have restricted the text to a minimum so that the reader can gain a clearer understanding of the anatomy as each procedure develops... With the increasing number of organ transplantations ... more and more general surgeons have to be involved in organ donation... This atlas is recommended for all transplant surgeons and should be available to all general units where organ donation occurs. -Transplant International

Book Description :

Cirrhosis from hepatitis C (HCV) is now the most common indication for liver transplant (LT) in the U.S., but between 2004 and 2013, new LT listings for NASH increased by 170%. Unfortunately, fibrosis progression leading to cirrhosis, liver cancer, and liver decompensation continues to occur after transplantation. Once cirrhosis and decompensation are evident, patient survival is poor and repeat LT is considered to improve outcomes. Therefore, the never-ending thirst for new approaches in the management of patients pre- and post-transplant has led to a very promising future in transplantation, thought there is much to learn to achieve better patient outcomes. This issue of Clinics in Liver Disease addresses the core areas to achieve better patient outcomes, with articles devoted to coagulopathy before liver transplant, challenges in renal failure before LT, LT for acute alcoholic hepatitis, LT in the pregnant patient, bariatric surgery and LT,and MELD Scores in prioritization of LT, to name a few. Readers will place a high value on the current state of liver transplantation in this issue.

Book Description :

A number of areas within liver transplant continue to evolve as the field matures. The advent of increasingly effective therapy for HCV will dramatically reduce the burden of recurrent disease within the next few years. HCC has become a well established indication for transplant with an increasing emphasis on adjuvant therapies to reduce the risk of tumor recurrence and potentially expand the acceptable limits of tumor burden amenable to liver transplant. Renal dysfunction is a frequent complication of decompensated liver disease and an important predictor of diminished post-transplant survival. Newer approached to therapy including terlipressin will reduce the impact of renal dysfunction in liver transplant candidates and potentially reduce the need for combined liver/kidney transplant. Increasing attention is being paid to role of comorbidities such as diabetes and hypertension on longterm recipient outcomes. Retransplantation remains a challenge with a variety of models available ot redict outcomes. Cardiac disease pretransplant is an area of active investigation with newer entities such as cirrhotic cardiomyopathy a growing concern. These are some of many evolving issues in liver transplant which will be addressed to update our readers and which in turn will enhance the care of patients with liver disease.
