BACKGROUND The most frequent genetic disease of the kidneys occurring in 1 of 1000 inhabitants is autosomal-dominant polycystic kidney disease (ADPKD). Growing renal cysts compress the kidney resulting in damage to parenchyma and functional disorders. Around 10% of these patients are dialyzed due to terminal renal insufficiency. With the advent of(More)
Kidney transplantation has become therapy of choice for patients with end-stage renal failure. However, many factors may cause graft rejection or delayed graft function, both of which decrease the prognosis for graft survival. For transplantologists the most important endeavor is to eliminate factors responsible for shortening graft function and to find(More)
OBJECTIVES Postoperative adaptation of urinary bladder is a process involving all patients after kidney transplantation that is facilitated by improve surgical techniques and new perioperative protocols. METHODS The study enrolled 102 kidney transplant recipients whose transplantations were performed between 2000 and 2002. The function of urinary bladder(More)
The aim of the study was to evaluate the influence of reduced vascular resistance following calcium channel blocker verapamil administration on kidney function at 3 months after transplantation. A group of 48 kidneys received 100 microg verapamil by injection directly into renal artery before starting perfusion. The control group included 48 paired kidneys(More)
Cold ischemia time (CIT) and graft reperfusion events are important nonimmunological factors that influence kidney graft function. The optimal temperature for the organs during CIT ranges from 4 degrees C to 8 degrees C. However, preservation of the designated temperature is usually not controlled during standard storage procedures. Aspects of initial graft(More)
Transplantation is the best treatment for end-stage renal diseases. For transplantologists, it is most important to know the factors that worsen graft survival prognosis. The aim of the study was to investigate factors predictive of graft loss and shortened graft survival. We retrospectively reviewed 442 renal transplant patients between 1990 and 1995 in(More)
INTRODUCTION Infections are one of the most common complications after organ transplantation. Viral infections such as hepatitis type B (HBV) and C (HCV) or cytomegalovirus (CMV) infections are among the most serious ones. A high frequency of HBV and HCV infections has been recognized in kidney recipients. Viral infections play a special role in graft(More)
