Preoperative interventions may mitigate postoperative pain in living liver donors
Little is known about how well postoperative pain is managed in living liver donors, despite the fact that pain severity is the strongest predictor of long-term disability due to chronic pain. Using data from the Adult to Adult Living Donor Liver Transplantation Cohort Study (A2ALL), researchers identified donor characteristics that influenced postoperative pain and evaluated postoperative pain management.
Trends in Anemia, MBD, and Interdialytic Weight Gain in US Hemodialysis Patients
The Dialysis Outcomes and Practice Patterns Study (DOPPS) Practice Monitor (DPM) has been updated with data current through June 2016, based on a national sample of US dialysis facilities.

New investigation emphasizes negative impact of acute rejection after liver transplantation
Even though acute rejection after solid organ transplantation is often treatable, it may place recipients at increased risk of progressive graft failure and death. Liver transplantation has been considered the exception to this rule, but in a recent paper investigators repudiate older data by demonstrating increased risks of graft failure and death in liver transplant recipients who experience acute rejection.
Comparing risk factors for recurrent PSC in living and deceased donor recipients
People with Primary Sclerosing Cholangitis (PSC) experience severe liver damage, for which the only known cure is a liver transplant. After a liver transplant, PSC returns in 15 to 25 percent of patients. In a new study published in
, investigators from the Adult-to-Adult Living Donor Liver Transplantation Cohort Study (A2ALL) identified several risk factors for PSC recurrence.
