Challenging Problems in Pediatric Liver Transplantation: Long Term Allograft Attrition

|Organizer/Moderator: Professor Sukru Emre, MD
Professor of Surgery (Transplant) and of Pediatrics, Yale University, USA
|Discussant: Carlos O. Esquivel, MD, PhD
Arnold and Barbara Silverman Professor in Pediatric Transplantation,
Stanford University School of Medicine, Stanford, CA, USA
|Discussant: Simon P. Horslen, MB ChB
Director of the Hepatobiliary and Intestinal Failure programs
Medical Director for Solid Organ Transplantation, Seattle Childrens Hospital, USA
Dr. Simon Horslen would like to make the case that the most difficult and yet the most important problem we face in Pediatric Liver transplantation is long term allograft health. While short term outcomes have improved dramatically, the long-term rate of graft fibrosis and graft loss has really not changed, and because of the age of pediatric patients at the time of transplant most of the morbidity falls on the adolescents and young adults.
Carlos O. Esquivel Biography:
Carlos O. Esquivel is Professor of Surgery at Stanford University School of Medicine, Chief of the Division of Abdominal Transplantation and the Associate Director of the Institute of Immunity, Transplantation and Infection, an umbrella institute that fosters interdisciplinary research between basic scientists and clinicians. Dr. Esquivel is the first recipient of the Arnold and Barbara Silverman Professorship in Transplantation. He received his M.D. degree from the University of Costa Rica School of Medicine, completed general surgery training at the University of California Davis and then obtained a doctoral degree from the University of Lund in Sweden.

In 1995, he was recruited to Stanford to start the Pediatric Transplant Programs at LPCH and rebuild the Adult Liver and Kidney Transplant Program.
Dr. Esquivel is recognized worldwide as an expert and pioneer in transplantation. He is a creative and productive investigator having contributed 338 publications in the medical literature and given over 200 lectures throughout the United States and internationally. He oversees multiple basic science and clinical research projects and is currently PI for a 5-year, multi-center NIH grant to develop biomarkers for Epstein-Barr Virus-induced post-transplant lymphomas in children. As a transplant leader at Stanford and in key national and international societies, he promotes team cooperation, embraces change and creates an environment for fostering discovery, and for training leaders of the future. In recognition of his many contributions to surgical education, Dr. Esquivel received the American Society of Transplant Surgeons 2015 Francis Moore Excellence in Mentorship in the Field of Transplantation Award.
