Antibodies against ARHGDIB and ARHGDIB gene expression associate with kidney allograft outcomeBackground. The impact of donor-specific anti-HLA antibodies (DSA) on antibody-mediated rejection (AMR) and kidney allograft failure is well established. However, the relevance of non-HLA antibodies remains unclear. Methods. We investigated 13 pretransplant non-HLA antibodies and their association with histology of AMR (AMRh) and kidney allograft failure. We included single kidney recipients (N=203) with...

 Neuro-Oncology , Analysis of intra-operative variables as predictors of 30-day readmission in patients undergoing glioma surgery at a single centerAbstract Purpose Reducing the time from surgery to adjuvant chemoradiation, by decreasing unnecessary readmissions, is paramount for patients undergoing glioma surgery. The effects of intraoperative risk factors on 30-day readmission rates for such patients is currently unclear. We utilized a predictive model-driven approach to assess the impact of intraoperative factors...

Biologic treatment options for the hip: A narrative reviewThe goal of surgery around the hip is to preserve both acetabular and femoral bone stock and to optimize function, specifically abductor function. Biologic options include allografts, allograft metal composites, and structural grafts that over time incorporate, are durable, and provide bone stock for future reconstruction(s). Reconstructive principles are guided by the defect(s) after tumor surgery, patient factors (age, chemotherapy, comorbid...

Specific challenges in end-of-life care for patients with hematological malignanciesPurpose of review The disease-related burden of patients with hematological malignancies is comparable with patients suffering from solid tumors. Palliative care offers relief from suffering independent of type of disease and prognosis. The prevalence of hematological malignancies is expected to increase in the next 20 years because of better therapeutic options with longer survival and because of the aging population....
