Many Donor Kidneys that Are Discarded May Be Suitable for Transplantation

• In an analysis of pairs of kidneys from the same donor in which 1 kidney was used but the other was discarded, the kidneys that were used tended to perform well. • The majority of discarded kidneys could have potentially been transplanted with good outcomes.

Surgery-Related Opioid Doses Could Drop Dramatically, Without Affecting Patients’ Pain Control, Study Suggests

opioidprepost.png

Some surgeons might be able to prescribe a third of opioid painkiller pills that they currently give patients, and not affect their level of post-surgery pain control, a new study suggests. That would mean far fewer opioids left over to feed the ongoing national crisis of misuse, addiction and overdose.

Unique 3D Printer Creates Realistic Model of Patient Prostate, Aims to Vastly Improve Surgical Outcomes

NIBIB-funded scientists have developed a new technique for 3D-printing patient-specific organ models – here the prostate gland -- using polymers that accurately model the prostate’s dimensions and physical properties, while also providing quantitative tactile feedback, or response to pressure, incisions, and suturing.

Researchers 3D Print Lifelike Artificial Organ Models

A team of researchers led by the University of Minnesota has 3D printed lifelike artificial organ models that mimic the exact anatomical structure, mechanical properties, and look and feel of real organs. These patient-specific organ models, which include integrated soft sensors, can be used for practice surgeries to improve surgical outcomes in thousands of patients worldwide.

Brain Remaps Itself in a Child with Double Hand Transplant

The first child to undergo a successful hand transplant also is the first child in whom scientists have detected massive changes in how sensations from the hands are represented in the brain. The brain reorganization is thought to have begun six years before the transplant, when the child had both hands amputated because of a severe infection during infancy. Notably, after he received transplanted hands, the patient’s brain reverted toward a more typical pattern.

“Green” Cataract Surgery Model Drastically Reduces Environmental Footprint

WasteUSandIndia.jpg

Faculty at NYU School of Medicine report that a healthcare center in India's model for cataract surgery emits 96 percent less carbon than in the United Kingdom -- and a likely even greater savings in the United States -- while yielding comparable or better health outcomes for one of the world’s most common surgical procedures.
