1 Innovations in Transplantation: Single-Port Donor Nephrectomy for Living-Donor Kidney Transplantation Face Transplantation: Preclinical and Clinical Trials Rolf N. Barth, M.D. Department of Surgery University of Maryland School of Medicine AHRQ 2011 Annual Conference September 19, 2011

2 Single-Port Donor Nephrectomy for Living- Donor Kidney Transplantation

3 Renal Transplantation as Therapy for End Stage Renal Disease 2000 - 2009 The Organ Procurement and Transplantation Network (OPTN). 2009.

4 Rationale for Single-Port Donor Nephrectomy Program Advanced laparoscopic approach achieved with existing instrumentation and techniques Improved cosmetic appearance Potential for improved post-operative recovery Motivate recipient/donor combinations Encourage living kidney donation

5 University of Maryland Experience Performed 1300 laparoscopic donor nephrectomies Preparation for single-port Minimized ports on standard donor Observed procedures Animal lab April 2009 initiated single-port donor nephrectomy as routine approach Currently performed over 140 single-port donor nephrectomies

16 Conclusions Single port donor nephrectromy is safe and may be accomplished in broad spectrum of donors with experienced team. Patients report improved satisfaction with cosmesis and donation process with single port compared to multiple port technique. No definite evidence regarding recovery time or pain. Further investigation of implications: –Willingness of recipients to ask potential donors –Additional kidney donors to alleviate organ shortage

17 Face Transplantation: Preclinical and Clinical Trials

18 Incidence of Facial Trauma Incidence of facial injury among soldiers in Iraq=30% (Colonel Mark Bagg MD, ASRM, Arizona, January 2006) Incidence of facial injury at University of Maryland Shock Trauma Center= 15% (unreported data: ~ 7,000-10,000 admissions per year)


20 Vascularized Composite Allograft (VCA) Composite tissue defined to elements of skin, muscle, bone Applications include: –Limb transplantation –Transplantation for soft tissue defects –Facial transplantation for devastating burn/blast injuries Results are life-saving, limb-saving, allow for avoidance of permanent disability

27 Clinical CTA Strategies Co-transplanted vascularized bone marrow may be permissive towards the development of prolonged graft survival. CTA were rejected at early timepoints without calcineurin-based immunosuppression. ‘Prope’ tolerance or minimal immunosuppression are the most attainable goals for widespread application of clinical CTA.

29 Minimizing Chronic Immunosuppression Lymphocyte-depleting induction therapies –Lowest rates of acute cellular rejection Steroid Avoidance or Weaning –Nearly all kidney, pancreas, and liver transplant patients have steroids eliminated between 3 and 21 days Permissive of chronic therapy with 1 or 2 drugs Future – costimulatory blockade reagents requiring once monthly treatment
