Paired kidney donations to expand the living donor pool. (5/57)

INTRODUCTION: The shortage of available deceased donors and the longer kidney transplant waiting lists in many countries around the world have placed greater emphasis on living donation (LD) as a means of meeting demand for transplantation in patients with end-stage kidney disease (ESKD). METHODS AND RESULTS: Increased LD rates are also driven by less invasive approaches to donor nephrectomy and by the excellent long-term results. LD kidney transplant outcomes are equivalent, if not superior, to those from deceased donors, even when donor and recipient are not genetically related, as is the case with spousal donations, the most frequent cohort of LD. Approximately 30% of willing and otherwise appropriate kidney donor/recipient pairs are biologically incompatible and do not proceed to live donor transplantation. In recent years, a number of strategies have been introduced to expand living donation programs beyond the classical direct donation, to overcome immunological barriers of blood group or HLA sensitization of recipients. New strategies in LD include paired kidney exchange (PKE), altruistic donation, altruistic donor chains and list exchange programs. Other alternative programs are desensitization and transplantation across the blood-type barrier. Regular PKE programs operate nationally in The Netherlands and the United Kingdom, or regionally in South Korea, Romania, the United States and Australia. CONCLUSIONS: If PKE were performed routinely using 2-way or 3-way PKE and altruistic donor chains, the rate of kidney transplants could increase by between 7% and 10%.  (+info)

There are no easy solutions for fixing US Healthcare and most likely any changes will take time to enforce. Meanwhile, medical tourism offers a good alternative for affordable quality procedures abroad. With reputable medical tourism company such as WorldMed Assist helping patients with the logistics, it makes medical travel to other countries that much less stressful. Another motivator for medical travel is to have procedures done that either arent approved in the U.S. like two-level cervical disk replacement (whereas only single-level is approved in the US) or procedures that were just recently approved (like Hip Resurfacing - approved in the US only in 2006) where US surgeons dont have anywhere near the experience of their counterparts in certain countries..

Many studies examining the phenomena of medical tourism have identified health equity issues associated with this global health services practice. However, there is a notable lack of attention in this existing research to the informal care provided by the friends and family members who typically accompany medical tourists abroad. To date, researchers have not examined the care roles filled by informal caregivers travelling with medical tourists. In this article, we fill this gap by examining these informal caregivers and the roles they take on towards supporting medical tourists health and wellbeing. We conducted 21 interviews with International Patient Coordinators (IPCs) working at medical tourism hospitals across ten countries. IPCs work closely with informal caregivers as providers of non-medical personal assistance, and can therefore offer broad insight on caregiver roles. The interviews were coded and analyzed thematically. Three roles emerged: knowledge broker, companion, and navigator. As

Despite the government and industry efforts, child sex trade has been also a problem. A study estimated that up to 10% of tourists who come to Costa Rica engage in sex tourism, with as many as 10,000 sex workers involved, many of whom are immigrants. Also it was reported that about 80% of the sex tourists are from the US. This is largely because prostitution is not illegal[citation needed] but many of the activities surrounding it are indeed illegal, such as pimping. Costa Rica first began development of its tourism industry with the creation of the first private hotel, the Gran Hotel Costa Rica, in 1930.

Tourism has an important economic role in Jordan, contributing to about 12 percent of the countrys gross domestic product. Despite its significant economic potential, however, many Jordanians harbor doubts about tourisms value and reputation.

Without domestic support, the tourism workforce has limited potential.. Improving domestic support of tourism in Jordan involves a fundamental shift in attitudes, which isnt a quick or easy transition to make.

The Biliopancreatic Diversion with Duodenal Switch - abbreviated as BPD/DS - is a procedure with two components. First, a smaller, tubular stomach pouch is created by removing a portion of the stomach, very similar to the sleeve gastrectomy. Next, a large portion of the small intestine is bypassed.. The duodenum, or the first portion of the small intestine, is divided just past the outlet of the stomach. A segment of the distal (last portion) small intestine is then brought up and connected to the outlet of the newly created stomach, so that when the patient eats, the food goes through a newly created tubular stomach pouch and empties directly into the last segment of the small intestine. Roughly three-fourths of the small intestine is bypassed by the food stream.. The bypassed small intestine, which carries the bile and pancreatic enzymes that are necessary for the breakdown and absorption of protein and fat, is reconnected to the last portion of the small intestine so that they can eventually ...

Downloadable! The significant impact of international tourism in stimulating economic growth is especially important from a policy perspective. For this reason, the relationship between international tourism and economic growth would seem to be an interesting empirical issue.

The impact of the degree of tourism specialization, which is incorporated as a threshold variable, on economic growth is examined for a wide range of countries at different stages of economic development.

TRC was engaged on this project to produce a Bikini Atoll high-level tourism feasibility study. This included a week-long site visit to Majuro and Bikini Atoll to engage with stakeholders to determine the tourism opportunities and constraints for Bikini Atoll..

Visitors would be attracted to connect to the Bikini history and culture, the Atolls nuclear legacy, and the marine and avifauna ecology which has ...

In case of big kidney stones treatment, the stones are first crushed with the help of an ultrasound. The crushed pieces are later removed with the help of the same nephroscope.. PCNL surgery is a complex procedure that has several risks associated with it. Some of the common PCNL complications include possibility of an injury to the nearby organs including lungs, colon and blood vessels and increased chances of infection, sepsis and bleeding.. ...
