This paper is provided as study guides only please do not submit this document directly to any university. Patients receiving transplants from the adrenal medulla have not been as successful. Adrenal medullary autotransplantation for Parkinson's patients was tested. Adrenal medullary tissue was transplanted into the caudate nucleus of 3 patients with advanced Parkinson's disease (7). The first patient had mild improvement in his motor functioning after the operation. However, post-operatively prolonged drowsiness and complex visual hallucinations developed. After his death, biopsy showed necrotic adrenal medullary tissue surrounded by inflammatory cells. The second patient had mild improvements in his symptoms.
