|Title:||The global role of kidney transplantation|
De Lourdes Ramirez-Duenas, M.
|Abstract:||We report the fifth female patient with Myhre syndrome (MS) and review the literature. She is a 13-year-old Mexican girl whose phenotype fulfills all the clinical and radiological criteria reported in MS such as typical facies, short stature, limited joint mobility, and short hands and feet. The physical habitus of MS is described and a square body shape is clearly distinguished in all cases. As the typical muscular build is present mainly in male patients, the MS muscular appearance may be hormonally influenced.

Chapman, J.",,"2012",,"World Kidney Day on March 8, 2012, provides a chance to reflect on the success of kidney transplantation as a therapy for end-stage kidney disease that surpasses dialysis treatments both for the quality and quantity of life that it provides and for its cost-effectiveness. Anything that is both cheaper and better, but is not actually the dominant therapy, must have other drawbacks that prevent replacement of all dialysis treatment by transplantation. The barriers to universal transplantation as the therapy for end-stage kidney disease include the economic limitations which in some countries place transplantation, appropriately, at a lower priority than public health fundamentals such as clean water, sanitation, and vaccination. Even in high-income countries, the technical challenges of surgery and the consequences of immunosuppression restrict the number of suitable recipients, but the major finite restrictions on kidney transplantation rates are the shortage of donated organs and the limited medical, surgical, and nursing workforces with the required expertise. These problems have solutions which involve the full range of societal, professional, governmental, and political environments. World Kidney Day is a call to deliver transplantation therapy to the 1 million people a year who have a right to benefit. " 2012 by Lippincott Williams & Wilkins.
