Since January 2020, the Novel Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic has dramatically impacted the world. In March 2020, the COVID-19 epidemic reached Belgium creating uncertainty towards all aspects of life. There has been an impressive capacity and solidarity of all healthcare professionals to acutely reconvert facilities to treat these patients. In the context of liver transplantation (LTx), concerns are raised about organ donation shortage and safety, the ethics of using limited healthcare resources for LTx, selection criteria for LTx during the epidemic and the risk of de novo COVID-19 infection on the waiting list and after LTx. BeLIAC makes several recommendations to try to mitigate the deleterious effect that this epidemic has/will have on donation and LTx, taking into account the available resources, and trying to maximize patients and healthcare professionals' safety.

Introduction: Strong correlation has been demonstrated between tumor dose and response and between healthy liver dose and side effects. Individualized dosimetry is increasingly recommended in the current clinical routine. However, hepatic and tumor segmentations could be complex in some cases. The aim of this study is to assess the reproducibility of the tumoral and non-tumoral liver dosimetry in selective internal radiation therapy (SIRT). Material and methods: Twenty-three patients with hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) who underwent SIRT with glass microspheres were retrospectively included in the study. Tumor (TV) and total liver volumes (TLV), and mean absorbed doses in tumoral liver (TD) and non-tumoral liver (THLD) were determined on the 90Y PET/CT studies using Simplicit90YTM software, by three independent observers. Dosimetry datasets were obtained by a medical physicist helped by a nuclear medicine (NM) physician with 10 years of experience (A), by a NM physician with 4-year experience (B), and by a resident who first performed 10 dosimetry assessments as a training (C). Inter-observer agreement was evaluated using intra-class correlation coefficients (ICC), coefficients of variation (CV), Bland-Altman plots, and reproducibility coefficient (RDC). Results: A strong agreement was observed between all three readers for estimating TLV (ICC 0.98) and THLD (ICC 0.97). Agreement was lower for TV delineation (ICC 0.94) and particularly for TD (ICC 0.73), especially for the highest values. Regarding TD, the CV (%) was 26.5, 26.9, and 20.2 between observers A and B, A and C, and B and C, respectively, and the RDC was 1.5. Regarding THLD, it was 8.5, 12.7, and 9.4, and the RDC was 1.3. Conclusion: Using a standardized methodology, and regardless of the different experiences of the observers, the estimation of THLD is highly reproducible. Although the reproducibility of the assessment of tumor irradiation is overall quite high, large variations may be observed in a limited number of patients. [less ▲]

BACKGROUND: Recent studies indicate that a group of patients with cirrhosis receiving a liver transplantation for hepatocellular cancer (HCC) beyond the Milan Criteria (MC) can achieve a similar outcome compared to patients within these criteria. This study aims to investigate the value of the Asan critera (AC), up-to-7 criteria (UT7), French alpha-foetoprotein (AFP) model and Metroticket 2.0 (MT2.0) model compared to the MC. METHODS: 526 patients transplanted for non-metastatic HCC were analyzed. Patient groups within and beyond MC and extended criteria were determined according to radiological assessment and AFP value at listing. RESULTS: Overall survival (OS) and recurrence (RR) rates were similar between patients within MC and all extended criteria. Five-year OS within MC was 71.3% compared to 70.9% for AC, 71.4% for UT7, 69.7% for AFP-model and 71.0% for MT2.0 criteria. Five-year RR within MC was 12.3% compared to 13.5% for AC, 13.0% for UT7, 14.3% for AFP-model and 13.2% for MT2.0 criteria. Patients beyond MC but within the extended criteria had tendency towards higher recurrence. CONCLUSIONS: All validated extended criteria (AC, UT7, AFP-model and MT2.0) could be proposed as alternatives to the MC with similar outcome. Prospective data are awaited to assess recurrence beyond MC. [less ▲]

Introduction: Donation after circulatory death (DCD) have been proposed to partially overcome the organ donor shortage. DCD-LT remains controversial, with reported increased risk of graft loss and retransplantation. The authors retrospectively reviewed a single centre experience with controlled DCD-LT in a 15-year period. Patients and Methods: 157 DCD-LT were consecutively performed between 2003 and 2017. All donation and procurement procedures were performed as controlled DCD in the operating theatre. Data are presented as median (ranges). Median donor age was 57 years (16–83). Median DRI was 2.242 (1.322–3.554). Allocation was centre-based. Median recipient MELD score at LT was 15 (6–40). Mean follow-up was 37 months. No patient was lost to follow-up. Results: Median total DCD warm ischemia was 19 min (7–39). Median total ischemia was 313 min (181–586). Patient survivals were 89.8%, 75.5% and 73.1% at 1,3 and 5 years, respectively. Graft survivals were 89%, 73.8% and 69.8% at 1,3 and 5 years, respectively. Biliary complications included mainly anastomotic strictures, that were managed either by endoscopy or hepatico- jejunostomy. Two patients were retransplanted due to intrahepatic ischemic lesions. Conclusion: In this series, DCD LT provides results similar to classical LT. Short cold ischemia and recipient selection with low MELD score may be the keys to good results in DCD LT, in terms of graft survival and avoidance of ischemic cholangiopathy. [less ▲]

Hepatopulmonary syndrome (HPS) is a pulmonary vascular complication of liver disease that affects up to 30% of patients with cirrhosis [1]. Intrapulmonary vascular dilatations and shunts result in gas exchange abnormalities, ranging from elevated alveolar–arterial oxygen gradients with no hypoxaemia to very severe hypoxaemia [1, 2]. Currently, liver transplantation (LT) is the only treatment option [3]. The Model for End-Stage Liver Disease (MELD) is a scoring system for assessing liver disease severity that has been validated to predict the 3-month waiting list mortality and is used by Eurotransplant for prioritising allocation of liver transplants [4]. However, this score poorly predicts overall and post-transplant survival, and does not take into account complications that affect outcomes independent of liver disease severity Copyright ©ERS 2019 https://doi.org/10.1183/13993003.01096-2018 Eur Respir J 2019; 53: 1801096 [5]. Hypoxaemia in HPS is generally progressive and mortality is highest in advanced stages [6, 7]. In this sense, a standard exception (SE) policy has been established to prioritise patients with severe HPS (arterial oxygen tension (PaO2) <60 mmHg), as their severity of illness is not properly reflected by the MELD score. In the pre-SE MELD era, FALLON et al. [1] reported that HPS is associated with a doubled risk of mortality compared to patients without HPS. In 2014, GOLDBERG et al. [5] reviewed SE LT outcomes in HPS patients in the USA and found that LT candidates with SE for HPS had decreased pre-transplantation mortality and superior overall survival compared to non-HPS patients. The European outcomes for patients with SE for HPS have never been explored. In this retrospective study, we analysed overall, pre-transplant and post-transplant survival in LT candidates with SE for HPS within Eurotransplant, and determined whether the intent of the exception policy is being met.

We report here the case of a 62-year-old patient with Child-Pugh stage C ethylic cirrhosis associated with severe macrocytic anaemia, refractory to iterative transfusions and withdrawal. After a haemorrhagic, deficiency-related, or sideroblastic etiology was ruled out, haemolytic anaemia was suspected. A blood smear allowed diagnosis of haemolytic anaemia with acanthocytes. This offers the opportunity to discuss anaemia in patients with alcoholic cirrhosis, a frequent complication spanning a broad severity range and having the potential to be life-threatening. Its origin can be multifactorial : acute haemorrhage, dilution, haemolysis (here due to acanthocytosis), marrow insufficiency caused by direct alcohol toxicity, malnutrition, iron deficiency, vitamin B9 or B12 deficiency, chronic inflammation, splenic sequestration induced by portal hypertension...Nous rapportons le cas d’une patiente de 62 ans atteinte d’une cirrhose éthylique de stade Child-Pugh C associée à une anémie macrocytaire sévère, réfractaire aux transfusions itératives et au sevrage.

Ever since the initial description of the Milan criteria, used for selecting patients with hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) for liver transplantation (LT), there has been a clear need to go further than solely morphological criteria. Tumours exceeding the Milan criteria, but presenting favourable biological behaviour, might still allow for comparable overall- and disease-free survivals after LT. As it is well established that the presence of microvascular invasion is a major factor that influences HCC recurrence after LT, several serum and tissue biomarkers in addition to imaging studies are attracting wider attention as more refined tools for selecting HCC patients for LT. A thorough review of the recent literature on the subject was conducted. In the future a combination of systemic inflammation markers, biomarkers and morphological criteria may be key to more accurate prediction of HCC recurrence after LT. This may allow LT in patients whose HCC tumours exceed the Milan criteria but have favourable biological behaviour. Further prospective studies are required in order to improve patient selection for transplantation in HCC and these could help a move towards more transparent and improved management. [less ▲]

Alcoholic hepatitis is a syndrome defined primarily by the clinical onset of jaundice in patients with a concomitant heavy consumption of alcoholic beverages. This pathology is managed by alcohol withdrawal with a 30-day survival rate of 90 %. For patients with severe alcoholic hepatitis, with a Maddrey score greater than 32 (taking into account bilirubin and prothrombin time), treatment with corticosteroids is discussed provided that a possible infection can be sufficiently excluded or adequately managed. The administration of corticosteroids is continued for 28 days if the Lille score, calculated after 7 days of treatment, is favourable (inferior to 0.45), leading to a survival rate of 80-90 %. However, if the Lille score is unfavourable (superior to 0.45), the prognosis is bad, with a survival of only 25-30 % at 6 months. Special attention needs to be paid to assure a sufficient caloric intake during the treatment period for a successful management. Liver transplantation, previously prohibited for this indication, can be discussed under certain circumstances. However, the success of treatment is contingent upon the alcohol withdrawal. Innovative drugs are currently under investigation to improve the prognosis of this condition. [less ▲]
