Paired and Altruistic Kidney Donation In The UK

Living donor kidney transplantation has increased significantly in the UK in recent years Many candidates for kidney transplant have family members or friends who are willing to donate but it is estimated that around one third of such offers must be declined because of ABO blood group incompatibility or human leukocyte antigen (HLA) sensitisation of the recipient Previously in the UK, legal framework limited LD transplantation to donor-recipient pairs who were genetically related or had a strong emotional connection. A change in UK legislation in 2006 has allowed the development of paired donation schemes and altruistic non-directed donation. This presentation describes the UK scheme and its results to date.

NEJM Procedure: Deployment of an Endovascular Graft in an Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm

Aneurysm repair is a mechanical solution to the problem of progressive expansion of abdominal aortic aneurysm and the risk of rupture. Although open surgical repair, which has been the established approach, is very effective, it carries substantial risks from the extensive surgical procedure. Endovascular repair was developed to reduce the risks associated with open surgery and to provide a treatment option for patients who are not deemed to be surgical candidates.

Transplant Reactions

Hyperacute Rejection Occurs within minutes (to hours) – so quick that the surgeon is sometimes able to visualise characteristic changes whilst sill performing the anastomosis of blood vessels. There is rapid agglutination (clumping together of blood cells), which is particularly risky for renal transplant patients. The reaction seen is the same as a blood transfusion reaction.

A woman with rapidly progressive weakness and sensory loss

A 61 year old woman presented to the accident and emergency department with progressive weakness of the lower limbs and a feeling of her legs being “frozen” over the preceding four days. Ten days earlier, she had contracted a flu-like illness and was diagnosed and treated with oseltamivir (Tamiflu) for presumed swine flu. She was later found to be influenza A/H1N1 seropositive on the reference laboratory haemagglutination assay. Her medical history included cervical spondylosis for which she had decompressive laminectomy (C4-7) in 1992 and a Cloward’s discectomy with bone graft and fusion of C5-7 in 1996.
