PenileTransplant_final04.jpg

Many soldiers returning from combat bear visible scars, or even lost limbs, caused by blasts from improvised explosive devices, or IEDs. However, some servicemen also return with debilitating hidden injuries -- the loss of all or part of their genitals. Now, the Johns Hopkins reconstructive surgery team that performed the country's first bilateral arm transplant in a wounded warrior has successfully performed the first total penis and scrotum transplant in the world.

Teen Heart Patient Thankful for New Future

• Megan Gagliardi was diagnosed with dilated cardiomyopathy at 18 years old. • Dilated cardiomyopathy is a condition in which the heart’s ability to pump blood is decreased because the left ventricle — the heart’s main pumping chamber — is enlarged and weakened. • Gagliardi received a heart transplant on her 19th birthday and is doing well six years later.

Transplanted Livers Help Body Defend Against Organ Rejection, Mayo Clinic Study Finds

For decades, transplant experts have observed that liver transplant recipients often need less anti-rejection medication, known as immunosuppressive drugs, than recipients of other solid organs. Similarly, when patients receive a multiple-organ transplant that includes the liver along with any other organ, they need less immunosuppressive medication and have less incidence of rejection even if they are highly sensitive to cellular bad actors, known as antigens, from the donor organs.
