Whitney Cummings - Princess Complex: My liver

Domino Liver Transplant Treats Two Rare Diseases, World First

ucsdhealthsciences:

For the first time ever, a surgical team led by Alan Hemming, MD, has successfully performed a domino transplant using a liver with a rare genetic disorder called methylmalonic acidemia (MMA).

“This extraordinary procedure allowed us to use one donated liver to save two lives,” said Hemming, professor and co-director of the Center for Hepatobiliary Disease and Abdominal Transplantation (CHAT) at UC San Diego Health System. “This procedure is technically more difficult but allows us to expand the number of patients who can benefit from this lifesaving surgery.”

The first transplant recipient, Rafael Bolanos, 28, suffered from MMA, a metabolic disease that causes a toxic build up of amino acids in the body. He faced coma and irreversible neurologic damage. The second patient, James Ogara, 62, was diagnosed with primary sclerosing cholangitis, a chronic liver disease caused by scarring of the bile ducts.

There he was, sitting on the kitchen floor, playing with his cars. I’d be gone for a couple minutes, plus, the Permanent Roommate was standing in the same room. Granted she was on the phone, and getting dinner ready, but I’d only be gone mere moments. I had to piss.

The worst…

Liver Vasculature and Ducts
On top, the small vessels shown are are the branches of the vena cava in the liver. The large vein behind those vessels is the vena cava ascendens. 
On bottom, the pouch labeled “4” is what Cheselden called the “cystis hepaticus” - the gall bladder. You can see the ductus cysticus coming off of the gall bladder, and the ductus hepaticus underneath it (this duct is actually posterior to the gall bladder in most cases, not underneath). The small vessels shown are the ductus pancreaticus, and the area labeled “8” is the entrance of the ductus communis into the duodenum.
