OBJECTIVE To present the first clinical pregnancy after uterus transplantation. DESIGN Case study. SETTING Tertiary center. PATIENT(S) A 23-year-old Mayer-Rokitansky-Kuster-Hauser syndrome patient with previous vaginal reconstruction and uterus transplantation. INTERVENTION(S) Eighteen months after the transplant, the endometrium was prepared for(More)
BACKGROUND Haemodialysis patients (HD) have been characterized by a high incidence and prevalence of atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease. Based on the traditional cardiovascular risk factors in this population, we cannot explain this high incidence and prevalence. One of the mechanisms contributing to cardiovascular risk in HD patients may be to uraemic(More)
BACKGROUND Oxidative stress (OS) and asymmetric dimethylarginine (ADMA) are accepted as nonclassical cardiovascular risk factors in end-stage renal disease patients. To clarify the role of these factors in the atherosclerotic process, we investigated if OS and ADMA are associated with common carotid artery intima media thickness (CIMT) in peritoneal(More)
The purpose of this study was to assess outcomes of urological complications after kidney transplantation operation. Nine-hundred and sixty-five patients received a kidney transplant between 2000 and 2006. In total, 58 (6.01%) developed urological complications, including urinary leakage (n = 15, 1.55%), stenosis (n = 29, 3%), vesicoureteral reflux (VUR) (n(More)
BACKGROUND The aim of this study is to present results of patients who have undergone renal transplantation concurrent with bilateral or unilateral native nephrectomy, with a special focus on polycystic kidney disease (PKD). MATERIAL AND METHODS We presented the outcome of renal transplantation patients who have undergone native nephrectomy unilaterally(More)
BACKGROUND We reported pregnancy outcomes after kidney transplantation in a single transplant center. METHODS We reviewed the perinatal outcomes of female kidney transplant patients of reproductive age (18-40 years) from 1987 to 2011. RESULTS A total of 246 patients were reviewed. Of these, 43 women registered a pregnancy following kidney(More)
Owing to the limited donor pool at transplant centers, grafts may be taken from marginal donors with congenital abnormalities, one of the most common of which is a fusion abnormality. Horseshoe kidneys may be transplanted to a single recipient en bloc or to 2 recipients after division. In our clinic, 3 grafts (1 obtained from a living donor and 2 from a(More)
OBJECTIVE We sought to report the postoperative complications, vascular reconstruction techniques and graft outcomes among our series of renal transplantations performed using grafts with multiple renal arteries. METHODS We reviewed retrospectively the medical records of 196 renal transplant patients of mean age 35.6 ± 13.3 years (range, 6-68) including(More)
AIM Oxidative stress (OS) and asymmetric dimethylarginine (ADMA) are accepted as non-classical cardiovascular risk factors in end-stage renal disease patients. To clarify the role of these factors in the atherosclerotic process, we investigated if OS and ADMA are associated with endothelial function (EF) in peritoneal dialysis (PD) patients. METHODS(More)
C-2 monitoring has been proposed as a more effective strategy than C-0 to predict the risk of acute rejection in the early stages posttransplantation. However, cyclosporine (CsA) is associated with posttransplant dyslipidemia. The aim of this retrospective study was to evaluate the correlations of C-0 and C-2 levels with atherogenic risk factors in the(More)
