Subtotal parathyroidectomy versus total parathyroidectomy and autotransplantation
in secondary hyperparathyroidism: a randomized trial.
Correlation of pancreatic histopathologic findings and islet yield in children with chronic pancreatitis undergoing total pancreatectomy and islet autotransplantation
We continue to be impressed with the potential for radioimmunotherapy as an adjunct to, or as in this study, a partial replacement for high-dose chemotherapy in autotransplantation
for relapsed-refractory or high risk CD-20 positive B-cell non-Hodgkin's lymphomas," noted Jack Singer, M.
Given the risk of autotransplantation
failure, the patient and his parents were reluctant to pursue further surgical debulking and autotransplantation
of the remaining parathyroid tissue into the forearm.
to extend fertility restoration beyond the realm of chemotherapy patients, to move from autotransplantation
into allotransplantation, and to use a groundbreaking transplant technique, raises the question of opening access to such techniques to a wider population of women--and for more diverse reasons.
When all four glands are enlarged, the condition is referred to as parathyroid hyperplasia, and the surgical management involves either subtotal parathyroidectomy (typically 3 1/2 glands) or total parathyroidectomy with autotransplantation
of some of the resected parathyroid tissue.
The Company is developing other medical products, including Cariel(TM); its healing agent for chronic wounds, ulcers and burns; Lipoel(TM) for the autotransplantation
of fat; Piliel(TM), its hair regrowth formula; and Repel(TM), its resorbable adhesion barrier film used to prevent surgical adhesions.
2] In refractory cases, ureterolysis followed by omental wrapping can be performed either through open, laparascopic or robotic surgery, with renal autotransplantation
traditionally left as a last resort option.
This paper provides an excellent series of images demonstrating the benefits of autotransplantation
with the improved surgical procedure brought about by the innovative use of a surgical template formed from a Cone beam CT scan.
To avoid adynamic bone disease, sufficient reduction in the amount of hyperfunctioning parathyroid tissue without causing a hypoparathyroid state can be achieved by subtotal (3 1/2-) parathyroidectomy or by total parathyroidectomy (PTX) with immediate or delayed autotransplantation
of fresh or cryopreserved parathyroid tissue.
It's equally meaningful for the advancement of stem cell research and gives credence to the concept of autotransplantation
in which a patient's own cells may provide a cure without concern for adverse immune response that is a factor in all current transplantation procedures.
The first human live birth after an orthotopic autotransplantation
of cryopreserved ovarian tissue has been reported by a team in Belgium.
