From 1970 to 1980, 341 consecutive renal transplants were performed in 307 patients at our hospital. Operative technique was uniform and performed by a single surgeon. Acute arterial thrombosis occurred in 12 kidneys (3.5 per cent) and venous thrombosis occurred in 3 (0.9 per cent). All of these kidneys were lost. Renal artery stenosis, diagnosed in 17(More)
The differential diagosis of masses in the suprarenal area in neonates is discussed in relation to clinical, laboratory and radiologic findings. Neonatal adrenal hemorrhage can be accurately diagnosed clinically. In the neonate neuroblastoma in situ is self-limiting and exploration to exclude it is unnecessary. Operative intervention should be reserved for(More)
The occurrence of ocular complications among 62 recipients of functioning renal transplants was reviewed 6 months to 7 1/2 years after transplantation. Posterior subcapsular cataracts were found in 29 (46.7%). A positive correlation was found between the development of cataracts and the total dose of corticosteroid, the number of days on which the dose(More)
A positive crossmatch due to T-cell reactivity against donor cells is considered a strong contraindication to renal transplantation because of the risk of graft loss from rejection. However, the significance of T-cell reactivity before but not at the time of transplantation is unknown. To determine whether transplantation can be successful under these(More)
Of 105 boys with posterior urethral valves managed during a 10-year period most were managed by primary valve ablation. However, 39 of these boys required concomitant or additional procedures to 71 massively dilated ureters because of azotemia, infection and/or progressive upper tract deterioration. In 17 boys 25 ureters could be reconstructed primarily by(More)
Over 11 1/2 years, 420 percutaneous needle biopsies were obtained from the transplanted kidneys of 205 patients at one institution. The procedure was performed by one nephrologist and 55 nephrology trainees. No limit was placed on the number of biopsies performed on one kidney, and the highest number was seven. The complications were macroscopic hematuria(More)
