Outcomes of Solid Organ Transplants After Simultaneous Solid Organ and Vascularized Composite Allograft Procurements: A Nationwide Analysis.
Aycart MA, Alhefzi M, Sharma G, et al.
Transplantation. 2017 ;101(6):1381-1386.
The procurement of facial vascularized composite allografts (VCA) does not seem to diminish outcomes of transplant recipients who received solid organ allografts from these donors. The authors present results of a first nationwide analysis of facial allograft donor surgery and long-term outcomes of the concomitantly recovered solid organs and their recipients. The identified individuals who received organs from ten donors, in which facial VCA recovery was performed. 36 organs were recovered and transplanted into 35 recipients. The graft survival rates for liver, kidney, heart, and lung allografts as well as recipient survival were calculated and showed no adverse effect of facial VCA and simultaneous solid organ procurement.
Join us for this innovative but also challenging comprehensive scientific program that will cover all important topics in reconstructive transplantation.
