Familial amyloidotic polyneuropathy (FAP), a hereditary form of systemic amyloidosis with clinically significant neuropathy and cardiomyopathy, is caused by a genetic defect of the transthyretin gene, which is mostly synthesized in the liver. Orthotopic liver transplantation (OLT) is thought to eliminate the amyloidogenic protein and currently is the only definitive treatment for this disorder. The aim of this study was to define the distribution and extent of amyloid deposition in tissues from ...

Although recurrence of viral hepatitis in liver transplants is common, data comparing recurrent hepatitis B (HB), hepatitis C (HC), and co-existing dual hepatitis B and C (HBC group II, with pretransplantation HC ( n = 10); group III, with pretransplantation HC and anti-HB surface or core antibody ( n = 4); and group IV, with pretransplantation HBC however, the course was dictated by HB virus.

The causes and pathologic changes leading to fibrosis and cirrhosis after orthotopic liver transplantation (OLT) are not fully defined. The computerized pathology files were searched for cases of fibrosis/cirrhosis after OLT. Of 493 grafts from 435 patients, 35 grafts from 32 patients of posttransplantation liver fibrosis/cirrhosis were identified and retrieved (7%). Detailed histopathologic examinations of all post-OLT liver biopsy specimens were performed in conjunction with clinical, virologi...

Patients with renal failure after liver transplantation have a particularly poor prognosis. Therefore, in the setting of end-stage renal disease requiring dialysis or severe renal insufficiency that will not improve after liver replacement, combined liver-kidney transplantation (LKT) is the preferred approach. We have adopted a policy of LKT in patients with end-stage liver disease and renal insufficiency undergoing dialysis or with a creatinine clearance less than 35 mL/min and evidence of chro...
