INTRODUCTION Proteinuria in renal transplant recipients has been recognized as a risk factor of progression of chronic allograft nephropathy and for cardiovascular disease, the main causes of transplant failure. PATIENTS AND METHODS We analyzed the risk factors for persistent proteinuria (>0.5 g/day) among 337 kidney allograft recipients with a minimum(More)
BACKGROUND Transplant renal artery stenosis, the prevalence of which varies from 2% to 12%, is an important cause of hypertension and allograft dysfunction. We sought to determine the clinical characteristics of this disorder, assessing, predisposing factors, establishing treatment options, and examining patient outcomes. PATIENTS AND METHODS Among 321(More)
INTRODUCTION Obesity is a prevalent problem in renal transplant recipients that is followed by reduced graft and patient survivals. Because the prevalence of overweight (OW) is increasing in the renal transplant population, we studied the influence of OW on graft and recipient evolution. PATIENTS AND METHODS We analyzed a series of 337 patients with renal(More)
The purpose of this work was to assess the prognostic value of the need for erythropoietin (EPO) treatment at 6 months after transplantation. We retrospectively reviewed the outcomes of 143 consecutive cadaveric kidney transplants performed between January 2000 and April 2004, functioning at 6 months postransplantation. Patients were divided into two(More)
