TTS Educational Committee started Hot Off the Press in April 2020, after the COVID-19 pandemic, to review important 3-5 articles related to COVID-19 and transplantation. The aim was to inform TTS members about new and important publications. The initiative has received good feedback. We plan to continue New Hot Off The Press weekly to and feature important manuscripts from high impact journals on the following topics: (view right panel).
Magnetic Resonance Elastography-derived Stiffness Predicts Renal Function Loss and Is Associated With Microvascular Inflammation in Kidney Transplant Recipients #magneticresonance #OpenAccess #TransplantTwitter bit.ly/3u5923tOrgan stiffening can be caused by inflammation and fibrosis, processes that are common causes of transplant kidney dysfunction. Magnetic resonance elastography (MRE) is a contrast-free, noninvasive imaging modality that measures kidney stiffness. The objective of this study was to assess the ability of MRE to serve as a prognostic factor for renal outcomes.
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.
