  • early
  • To identify factors predictive of early graft loss in the first 3 months after living donor liver transplantation. (scielo.br)
  • 18. The chi-square test, Student t -test and uni- and multivariate analysis were used for the evaluation of risk factors for early graft loss. (scielo.br)
  • group
  • Seventy-eight adults submitted to living donor liver transplantation were divided into group I with 62 (79.5%) patients with graft survival longer than 3 months, and group II with 16 (20.5%) patients who died and/or showed graft failure within 3 months after liver transplantation. (scielo.br)
  • CABG
  • This study evaluates the predictive value of serum triglyceride levels on mortality in post-coronary artery bypass graft (CABG) diabetic patients with subsequent analysis by sex. (diabetesjournals.org)
  • Sometimes this is done with surplus tissue, tissue that can regenerate, or tissues more desperately needed elsewhere (examples include skin grafts, vein extraction for CABG, etc. (wikipedia.org)
  • Saphenous vein grafts for example, are harvested as free veins from the leg for use as coronary artery and peripheral bypass grafts in CABG and peripheral bypass surgeries, respectively. (wikipedia.org)
  • Endothelial
  • Effect of incision width on graft survival and endothelial cell loss after Descemet stripping automated endothelial keratoplasty. (nih.gov)
  • To assess the effect of incision width (5.0 and 3.2 mm) on graft survival and endothelial cell loss 6 months and 1 year after Descemet stripping automated endothelial keratoplasty (DSAEK). (nih.gov)
  • This retrospective analysis assessed graft survival, complications, and endothelial cell loss, which was calculated from baseline donor and 6-month and 1-year postoperative central endothelial images evaluated by an independent specular microscopy reading center. (nih.gov)
  • PDEK graft is transplanted so far for adult patients who have lost vision due to endothelial decompensation meaning the Endothelium is not working. (wikipedia.org)
  • Descemet's membrane along with endothelium in the patient is removed mechanically by reverse Sinskey hook by controlled stripping on the endothelial side (Fig 3A-C). The PDEK graft which is already preserved in the storage medium is then placed in an injector (Fig 3A). (wikipedia.org)
  • donors
  • Thus, older and heavier donors, men, African Americans, patients with diabetes, and patients at the top of the UNOS urgency list were more likely in the model to have graft failure. (medpagetoday.com)
  • This was found to not only allow for better allocation of organs among donors, but improved graft ischemia by reducing the time required to transport organs to prospective patients. (wikipedia.org)
  • diabetic
  • Preoperative triglycerides predict post-coronary artery bypass graft survival in diabetic patients: a sex analysis. (diabetesjournals.org)
  • The current study was initiated to define the effects of the DPP-IV inhibitor sitagliptin (MK0431) on transplanted islet survival in nonobese diabetic (NOD) mice, an autoimmune type 1 diabetes model. (diabetesjournals.org)
  • In preclinical studies, the DPP-IV inhibitor isoleucine thiazolidide was shown to improve glucose tolerance in both streptozotocin (STZ)-induced ( 18 , 19 ) and BioBreeding (BB) ( 19 ) diabetic rats, associated with increased β-cell survival and possibly islet neogenesis ( 18 ). (diabetesjournals.org)
  • vascular
  • Moreover, there are no clear histopathological criteria of AMR diagnosis in liver graft and no consensus about the value of vascular C4d deposits [ 2 ]. (hindawi.com)
  • liver
  • This problem can be overcome by developing survival models specific for each major cause of liver disease, just as has been done in this paper for HCV, although this approach was avoided in the current paper for the sake of simplicity," he wrote. (medpagetoday.com)
  • We conducted a 7-year prospective study to show correlation between presence of anti-HLA and anti-MICA antibodies and liver graft survival. (hindawi.com)
  • Moreover, presence of preformed antibodies against donor HLA antigens detected by cytotoxic assay or multibead array was associated with decreased 1- and 5-year liver graft survival [ 4 ]. (hindawi.com)
  • tissue
  • When memory helper T cells' CD4 receptors bind to the MHC class II molecules which are expressed on the surfaces of the target cells of the graft tissue, the memory helper T cells' T cell receptors (TCRs) can recognize their target antigen that is presented by the MHC class II molecules. (wikipedia.org)
  • dermis
  • Due to the scarring and distortion of the donor scalp from FUE it makes subsequent sessions more difficult, and grafts are more fragile and subject to trauma during placing, since they often lack the protective dermis and fat of microscopically dissected grafts. (wikipedia.org)
  • thickness
  • Epidermal appendages are important sources of epithelial cells that re-epithelialize when the overlying epithelium is removed or destroyed in patients with partial thickness burns , abrasions, or split-thickness skin graft harvesting. (medscape.com)
  • Hence the overall thickness of the PDEK graft will be about 32 to 44 microns. (wikipedia.org)
  • restore
  • He pioneered the technique of multiple grafts to restore dopamine input to the parkinsonian mammalian brain. (wikipedia.org)
  • Methods
  • Different methods have been proposed to further improve graft survival affected by these later factors mainly by removing capture devices and adding/increasing time on ice. (wikipedia.org)
  • patients
  • He also validated the model with a data-splitting approach, in which survival as predicted by the model was compared with the observed survival among patients whose data were not used to create the model. (medpagetoday.com)
  • procedure
  • The graft takes a shape of scroll immediately after dissection and the surgeons maintains the integrity or orientation of the scroll throughout the procedure. (wikipedia.org)
  • In this minimally invasive procedure, grafts containing hair follicles that are genetically resistant to balding, (like the back of the head) are transplanted to the bald scalp. (wikipedia.org)
  • The technicians generally do the final part of the procedure, inserting the individual grafts in place. (wikipedia.org)
  • Conclusions
  • CONCLUSIONS- Treatment with MK0431 therefore reduced the effect of autoimmunity on graft survival partially by decreasing the homing of CD4 + T-cells into pancreatic β-cells through a pathway involving cAMP/PKA/Rac1 activation. (diabetesjournals.org)
  • skin
  • Among the indications for skin grafting are promotion of accelerated healing of burns and other wounds, reduction of scar contracture, enhancement of cosmesis, reduction of insensible fluid loss, and protection from bacterial invasion. (medscape.com)
  • patient
  • citation needed] For several days prior to surgery the patient refrains from using any medicines which might result in intraoperative bleeding and resultant poor grafting. (wikipedia.org)
  • Results
  • Pre-operative folliscopy will help to know the actual existing density of hair, so that postoperative results of newly transplanted hair grafts can be accurately assessed. (wikipedia.org)
  • small
  • The surgeon then uses very small micro blades or fine needles to puncture the sites for receiving the grafts, placing them in a predetermined density and pattern, and angling the wounds in a consistent fashion to promote a realistic hair pattern. (wikipedia.org)
  • cell
  • The incretin hormones, glucose-dependent insulinotropic polypeptide (GIP) and glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1), exert a number of actions that improve glucose homeostasis, including potentiation of glucose-stimulated insulin secretion (GSIS), promotion of β-cell proliferation and survival, and inhibition of glucagon secretion ( 1 - 7 ). (diabetesjournals.org)
  • In vivo, Rapa administration reduced danger-associated IL-6 production, T cell proliferation, and graft infiltration. (jimmunol.org)
  • HLA (human leukocyte antigens) were originally defined as cell surface antigens that mediate graft-versus-host disease. (wikipedia.org)
