Cases from Daily Practice B - Patient Cases with Late Challenges

Course video 48 of 50

Now you’ve learned about the challenges in the early period after transplantation. But what about the late period? What is the long term patient and allograft survival? Have we improved in the last decades? What are the main causes for morbidity and mortality? And can we reach tolerance in the future? We invite you to give your opinion in the patient cases and to discuss it on the forum. There are also advanced readings to look at additional subjects, including recurrence of the kidney disease after transplantation, the organization of dermatological care for the transplant recipient and the role of the patient himself in the whole process. The interview about tolerance gives you insight why pregnancy is of interest to understand the concept of tolerance and which steps have been made from lab research to a clinical protocol. In the honors lesson late challenges will be discussed in more detail, with a focus on infections, recurrence of the kidney disease after transplantation and tolerance. Have fun and good luck with this last module.
