Imaging panorama in postoperative complications after liver transplantation.

Sureka B, Bansal K, Rajesh S, Mukund A, Pamecha V, Arora A - Gastroenterol Rep (Oxf) (2015)

Bottom Line: The liver is the second most-often transplanted solid organ after the kidney, so it is clear that liver disease is a common and serious problem around the globe.Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is used for the diagnosis of biliary complications, bile leaks and neurological complications.This article illustrates the imaging options for diagnosing the various complications that can be encountered in the postoperative period after liver transplantation.

gov057-F11: Fungal pneumonia. Axial high resolution CT lung window scan showing Aspergillus infection in the form of dense mass-like consolidation (arrows) in bilateral lungs with surrounding areas of ground-glass opacities.

Mentions: The incidence of post-transplant pneumonia varies from 5–38%. Hospital-acquired pneumonia is usually seen in the first six days of hospitalization. Ventilator-associated pneumonia is defined as pneumonia occurring > 48 hours after patients have been intubated and received mechanical ventilation. Common micro-organisms are gram-negative pathogens such as Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Escherichia coli, Klebsiella species, Acinetobacter species and Staphylococcus aureus (including methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus). Tuberculosis is more frequent in transplant recipients and is mainly observed in locales that are highly endemic. The incidence of cytomegalovirus pneumonitis is 0–9.2% in liver transplant recipients. Aspergillosis is the most common and fatal fungal pathogen in transplant recipients (Figure 11). The most important risk factors for invasive aspergillosis are repeat transplantation and renal failure in liver transplant recipients [44].Figure 11.
