About UT Southwestern Directions ... Support Groups and Resources Our Programs document.write('');
UT Southwestern Medical Center is a leading transplant center and has received numerous awards as well as recognition for its excellence in research, education and patient care. Through state-of-the-art facilities and highly experienced personnel, the UT Southwestern transplant programs have established an exceptional track record. For example:
  • The heart transplant program was rated the best in the nation for achieving the highest survival rate (100 percent) for one-year post-transplant patients.
    The lung transplant program has achieved a 100 percent survival rate compared to an average of 83.6 percent for all other centers in the nation for one-year post-transplant survival of double lung transplant patients.*
    The bone marrow transplant program is actively investigating a new method of transplantation that de-emphasizes the toxic effects of high-dose chemotherapy and radiation therapy while emphasizing the powerful anti-cancer effects of donor immune cells. This treatment has resulted in complete and ongoing remissions in many patients with otherwise incurable malignancies.
    The kidney-pancreas transplant physicians are responsible for a number of innovations that have become nationally accepted practice.

28. Mind Hacks: Head Transplants And Szymborska's Experiment
The experiment was executed by Russian scientists and anticipated later work by neurosurgeon Robert White, who attempted transplant the heads of two monkeys
March 19, 2008
Head transplants and Szymborska's Experiment:
The Nobel prize-winning poet Wisława Szymborska wrote one of her most striking poems about a morbid experiment where a dog's head was cut from its body but kept alive by a blood-pumping machine. The poem serves as a commentary on happiness and anxiety about the purpose of existence, but what many people don't know is that the experiment was genuinely completed, and the black and white film that the poem is based on can be viewed online. The experiment was executed by Russian scientists and anticipated later work by neurosurgeon Robert White, who attempted transplant the heads of two monkeys, as can be seen in footage from the procedure. While White thought of it as a possible precursor to human head transplantation, the scientific community reacted with outrage and these days it's generally thought of as a pretty appalling experiment that achieved virtually nothing of consequence. Neuroscientist Steven Rose gives an interesting video commentary on the experiment, drawing from recent findings in '

31. A Science Odyssey: People And Discoveries: First Successful Kidney Transplant Pe
Skin and eyes were among the first successful transplants. Between 1954 and 1973, about 10000 kideny transplants were performed.

Photo: The identical Herrick twins were the first participants in a successful kidney transplant. The idea of transplanting organs is not new. It can be found in myths of the ancient Greeks and was referred to by even older civilizations. But until the middle of the twentieth century it remained largely impossible, a piece of myth, or fantasy, or science fiction. Skin and eyes were among the first successful transplants. But the larger, more complex, and imbedded organs posed countless problems. The kidney was the first such organ to be successfully transplanted. Since humans naturally have two kidneys, but can live with just one, the kidney lent itself well to the process. (Of the major organs, the kidney is still the one most often transplanted.) The first attempts in the early 1950s, as in all transplant cases, were made when the only other alternative for the patient was death. These early patients briefly raised hopes by starting a good recovery, but then succumbed. The future of transplant surgery began to look very bleak. Meanwhile, Peter Medawar in Great Britain had been researching the topic of rejection, which he had observed in skin grafts as a wartime surgeon. He found that graft recipients would form antibodies against the graft, unless they had been exposed to similar foreign tissue early in life. (He used chickens for his research subjects.) Medawar's work showed that the body's rejection of foreign tissue was indeed an immune response. He and another researcher received the 1960 Nobel Prize for this discovery.

Keratoconus and Cornea Transplants
Sorry, but these pages haven't been updated in some time...
It's hard to believe, but it's now (January, 2007) more than 10 years since my first corneal transplant. With the exception of developing a significant case of glaucoma, which may or may not have anything to do with keratoconus or the transplants, I am doing fine and have corrected vision close to 20/20. The transplants seem to be in great shape. I haven't been actively involved in the KC mailing list for several years now, and haven't spent much time updating these pages; I suspect that many of the links below are now broken. Still, I hope that this site provides useful information for anyone with KC or contemplating a corneal transplant. I have not had a single day (or minute!) of regret that I had my transplants; they made an unbelievable improvement in my life.
I have an eye condition called keratoconus. It's a disease in which the cornea (the outer surface of the eye in front of the pupil) becomes cone-shaped rather than spherical, and this results in extreme astigmatism. Glasses can't correct this vision problem, but hard contact lenses often can. Unfortunately, the distortion of the cornea makes it very difficult to fit contacts comfortably for a keratoconic my eye doctor described it as "trying to balance a saucer on the end of a football."

      Religion/Philosophy Glossary

      On the face of it, there seems to be little reason to question the ethics behind transplanting organs. Apparently one of the greatest achievements of modern surgery, tens of thousands of people are given a new lease on life through the selfless altruism of others who choose to find hope in the midst of tragedy, literally giving of their own bodies in the effort to save others. But this really is more appearance than fact, because right under the surface lurks a morass of ethical dilemmas and controversies which have threatened to undermine the entire practice of transplanting organs. These problems have only grown in scope as new medical advances have been made in recent years, with little prospect of an easy resolution any time soon.

    Organ transplants without lifelong immunosuppressants
    • 21 February 2008 Linda Geddes Magazine issue 2644
    A KIDNEY transplant may save your life, but it comes at a cost: the immunosuppressant drugs taken to stop your body rejecting the organ can leave you more vulnerable to infections and boost your risk of cancer. But there may soon be a way to identify patients whose bodies have accepted their transplants , meaning they could reduce their drug intake, or stop altogether. "At the moment immunosuppressants are very much drugs for life," says Robert Lechler of Kings College London. He estimates that the immune systems of up to one-fifth of kidney-transplant recipients may eventually learn to tolerate their new organ. However, as such tolerance has been almost impossible to identify, the vast majority stay on drugs as a precaution. "Coming off the drugs is very risky because as soon as rejection starts, you damage the kidney," says Lechler. To find a better way of identifying organ-tolerant patients, Lechler ...

(Mark Wilson/Globe Staff) Email Print Text size By David Abel Globe Staff March 5, 2008 The New England Organ Bank has authorized a surgical team at Brigham and Women's Hospital to perform partial face transplants on eligible patients whose faces have been disfigured. The team could perform an operation as early as the next few weeks, officials said, but it is unlikely a donor and recipient would be found for months, if not years. To be eligible, recipients will have to be kidney transplant patients who have experienced facial burns, trauma, or skin cancer that has left them with "severe facial disfigurement," according to Sean Fitzpatrick, a New England Organ Bank spokesman. Fitzpatrick said kidney transplant recipients are already taking immunosuppressive medication, which helps stop rejection.
