A 69-year-old woman received a right lobe living donor liver transplantation at #ClevelandClinic by Dr. Koji Hashimoto. This life-saving procedure used 67% from a healthy, living donor liver to treat NASH (non-alcoholic steatohepatitis). Living donor liver transplants are one invaluable way we’re dealing with the shortage of donor organs needed. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ In adults, 60-70% of the liver’s right lobe can be used or 30-40% of the left lobe. In small children, only a sliver of liver ― 15-25% (a left-lateral segment) is needed. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Who can be a living liver donor? Anyone who has a matching or compatible blood type and is between 18-55 years old (60 years if donating to a small child) and is generally healthy can help save a life! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ For more information, click the link in our bio. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #OrganDonation #LiverTransplant #LivingDonor

A healthy, 58-year-old man recovers 20/20 vision (starting at 20/400) after aggressive treatment for a very uncommon eye infection: Listeria! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ He came to Cleveland Clinic’s emergency department after 2 days of redness and pain in his right eye that kept getting worse. Listeria is very difficult to diagnose and requires a high level of suspicion on the part of the doctor. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀ In this case, ophthalmologists and infectious disease specialists ruled out many other eye problems and narrowed it down to Listeria. With the right antibiotics and surgery, they saved this man’s eyesight. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀ This case highlights the importance of early diagnosis and treatment, including proper laboratory evaluation, surgical intervention and physician collaboration, for the best outcome! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Check out the full case study — click the link in our bio. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #TransformationTuesday #ClevelandClinicCaseStudy #ClevelandClinic
