Hopkins Surgery Research Day

We were excited for the opportunity to present our work at the first ever Hopkins Surgery Research Day (May 24, 2017)! We brought 12 posters and gave 2 talks.

 Congrats to our Research Data Analyst Mary Grace Bowring for her award winning poster on Sex and Size Disparity in Liver Transplant!

 Core Faculty member and 2015 Rothman Early Career Development Award for Surgical Science award winner Dr. Tanjala Purnell gave an update on her ongoing research titled, “Patient Centered Research to Improve Equity in Access to Kidney Transplantation.”

Another highlight was our Halsted resident and PhD candidate Dr. Sandra DiBrito sharing her research in general surgery and transplantation, titled, “Outcomes Following General Surgery in Kidney Transplant Recipients.”

Thank you to the Johns Hopkins Department of Surgery for facilitating a great day of sharing engaging surgical science!

TransplantModels.com

Five of ERGOT’s developed transplant models can be found at transplantmodels.com.

Living Donor Risk Index (LKDPI)
This model predicts recipient risk of graft loss after living donor kidney transplantation based on donor characteristics, on the same scale as the KDPI.

ESRD Risk Tool for Kidney Donor Candidates
This model is intended for low-risk adults considering living kidney donation in the United States. It provides an estimate of 15-year and lifetime incidence of end-stage renal disease.

Infectious Risk Donors
When a patient with end stage renal disease (ESRD) on the waitlist for a kidney is offered an Infectious Risk Donor (IRD) kidney, they need to decide whether they will accept the IRD kidney and the associated infectious risk, or if they will decline it and continue to wait for the next available infectious-risk free kidney.

Transplant Candidacy for Patients 65+
This prediction model is intended for adults with ESRD on dialysis aged 65 and above; it provides the predicted probability of 3-year survival after kidney transplantation (KT). Patients with predicted 3-year post-KT survival in the top quintile are deemed “excellent” candidates.

Pediatric Transplant: Living or deceased donor first?
Most pediatric kidney transplant recipients live long enough to require retransplantation. The most beneficial timing for living donor transplantation in candidates with one living donor is not clear.

Patterns of End-Stage Renal Disease Caused by Diabetes, Hypertension, and Glomerulonephritis in Live Kidney Donors

Completing the trilogy of papers published in the December issue of the American Journal of Transplantation that was dedicated to living donors, our lab looks for Patterns of End-Stage Renal Disease Caused by Diabetes, Hypertension, and Glomerulonephritis in Live Kidney Donors.

We looked at studies averaging less than 10 years of follow-up to better understand postdonation ESRD.
