Cardiovascular Pathology, Cytopathology, Abdominal Solid Organ Transplantation (liver, pancreas, small bowel)

An exciting milestone in small bowel transplant pathology occurred in October 1999 when the Sixth Annual International Small Bowel Transplantation Symposium was held in Omaha. I led pathologists from UNMC, Pittsburgh, London, Ontario, and Miami in developing a working formulation of histologic criteria for grading rejection in small bowel transplant biopsies. This grading scale will be published in Transplant Proceedings in September 2000. My interest in chronic rejection and transplant arteriopathy continues and I am investigating this process in small bowel allografts as well. 

A first-year medical student, Brock Wendt, and I studied an interesting process of intimal thickening and medial damage in cadaver aortic homografts used in reconstruction of hypoplastic aortas in children. We are correlating donor and recipient characteristics to better understand the pathobiology of this poorly-understood phenomenon.
