BACKGROUND Assessing glomerular filtration rate (GFR) is important in surveillance of kidney transplant recipients. This study aimed to determine accuracy of current equations to estimate GFR in Arabic kidney transplant recipients versus measurement of true GFR by 99m technetion diethylene triamine pentaacetic acid ((99m)Tc- DTPA). METHODS GFR(More)
To investigate the association of albuminuria and kidney function outcome in kidney transplant recipients, we studied 161 kidney transplant recipients; 95 (59%) of them were males and the mean age of the patients was 46 ± 13 years (range 18-70 years). All the patients received allografts from living related kidney donors. The mean body mass index of the(More)
INTRODUCTION Assessment of glomerular filtration rate (GFR) is the best index of kidney functions. We aimed to determine the accuracy of El-Minia equation for estimation of GFR in different stages of chronic kidney disease (CKD) in the El-Minia population of CKD patients, in comparison to other proposed equations. MATERIALS AND METHODS The study included(More)
