• 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)
  • vein
  • Vein graft disease}} from http://somahlution.com/pdfs/SOMA_0069_VGD_VGF_White_Paper2_LR.pdf. (wikipedia.org)
  • Vein grafting is a surgical technique in which a vein(s) is removed and grafted to another blood vessel to bypass a blockage, repair a blood vessel or connect blood vessels of a tissue or digit graft to recipient blood vessels. (wikipedia.org)
  • Vein grafting can be performed utilizing either free vein grafts or integral veins located within tissue grafts. (wikipedia.org)
  • Free vein grafts are isolated veins harvested from one part of the body and grafted elsewhere in the body. (wikipedia.org)
  • Integral vein grafts refer to those blood vessels located within a flap or digit graft that are micro-surgically connected to recipient blood vessels. (wikipedia.org)
  • free vein, free artery and integral vein grafts are all subject to post-grafting Vein Graft Disease (VGD) and the mechanism of disease initiation and progression is similar across all graft types. (wikipedia.org)
  • This is not surprising given the similar anatomy and physiology between types of vein grafts and given that vascular graft experience similar stresses, including the physical trauma of harvesting and handling, post-harvest ischemia, oxidative stress, reperfusion injury and adaptive stress in the new post grafting environment. (wikipedia.org)
  • VGD is the principal cause of both early (within 30 days) and intermediate/late Vein Graft Failure (VGF). (wikipedia.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)
  • 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)
  • donors
  • 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)
  • Recipient
  • PDEK graft is prepared initially and kept in the storage medium (Optisol or MK medium) till the recipient bed is prepared. (wikipedia.org)
  • Furthermore, should the recipient (for example, type B-positive with a type AB-positive graft) require eventual retransplantation, the recipient may be medically capable of receiving a new organ of either blood type. (wikipedia.org)
  • Transplanting only ABO-compatible grafts (matching blood groups between donor and recipient) helps prevent rejection mediated by humoral immunity. (wikipedia.org)
  • failure
  • Triglycerides (OR=2.97, 95%CI=1.03-8.52, P=0.044) maintained its association with graft failure after adjustments for confounders. (diabetesjournals.org)
  • We hypothesized that other immune cell types may drive subclinical injury, ultimately leading to graft failure. (jci.org)
  • The 3-gene signature also stratified patients at high risk of graft failure as soon as 15 days after biopsy. (jci.org)
  • patients
  • Interestingly, WBC early after OLT was a prognostic marker for patients (p=0.019) and graft survival (p=0.03). (omicsonline.org)
  • Results Two patients had failed grafts. (bmj.com)
  • Of the remaining 14 patients with successful grafts, after 12 months, 79% had BCVA of 6/6 or better, and all patients had a BCVA of 6/9 or better. (bmj.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)
  • chronic
  • Although immunomodulatory therapies targeting host T cells have improved short-term survival rates, rates of chronic allograft loss remain high. (jci.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)
  • restore
  • He pioneered the technique of multiple grafts to restore dopamine input to the parkinsonian mammalian brain. (wikipedia.org)
  • 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)
  • 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)
