New TTS Needs Assessment Survey

Marcelo Cantarovich
TTS President

The slogan we adopted for the TTS 2022 Congress is "Committed to Access and Transparency" and as a lead-up to the Congress we have launched a new needs assessment survey which will aid TTS in developing new programs, educational material and strategies to better improve access and transparency in the field of transplantation. As a non-governmental organization in official relations with the World Health Organization (WHO) the information collected will feed into the work TTS is doing as part of our WHO collaboration.

Your support, by completing this survey, will contribute to the success of this initiative. Your answers will be kept confidential and anonymous.

The survey will take 6+ minutes and must be done from a computer or tablet.

Transplantation - July 2022 Issue


In this issue you will find collected together all of the information that we needed in March 2020 on the impact of COVID-19, the effectiveness of vaccination and the treatments needed to reduce the terrible early mortality we witnessed in our transplant populations. Proving that COVID has not stopped scientific discovery we also have some great articles on biomarkers, kidney biopsy and diagnosis of cardiac rejection. There is a really neat report on immunoproteomics in heart recipients and a study that highlights the unintended consequences of imflifidase treatment on analysis of HLA antibodies. Much to keep you busy reading as you head for a summer break

DSA Are Associated With More Graft Injury, More Fibrosis, and Upregulation of Rejection-associated Transcripts in Subclinical Rejection #TBT

Subclinical T cell-mediated rejection (subTCMR) is commonly found after liver transplantation and has a good short-term prognosis, even when it is left untreated. Donor-specific antibodies (DSA) are putatively associated with a worse prognosis for recipient and graft after liver transplantation.

Textbook Outcome as a Quality Metric in Liver Transplantation #OpenAccess #liver #TransplantTwitter

Quality in liver transplantation (LT) is currently measured using 1-y patient and graft survival. Because patient and graft survival rates now exceed 90%, more informative metrics are needed. Textbook outcomes (TOs) describe ideal patient outcomes after surgery. This study critically evaluates TO as a quality metric in LT.
