A Lil' Boy's Journey to Live….

CT and CTA results

Riley’s CT and CTA looked ‘ok’. The CT showed some air trapping which has been present for years. It is related to the Bronchiolitis obliteran (chronic rejection). There was also a few tree in bud opacities that may be related to recent illness and mucus. It will be further evaluated when Riley has his bronchosopy and lavage.
The CTA showed dilation of the aorta beyond the donor site. Dilation has been previously noted. Doesn’t look to have changed much since last year but has gone from 2.9cm in 2018 to 3.2cm in 2023. We will continue to monitor. Riley’s right atrium was also noted to be dilated, but we’re waiting to hear back from the team in regards to that.
We have added an xray of Riley’s neck/spine to his pretesting to check the blood vessels in the back of Riley’s head/neck. Also GI will be placing the impedance probe when Riley is scoped March 6th. He will be admitted for 24 hours.
