In a multicenter trial, renal transplant recipients were randomized to tacrolimus with fixed-dose sirolimus (Tac/SRL, N = 318) or tacrolimus with MMF (Tac/MMF, N = 316). Targeted tacrolimus trough levels were lower in the Tac/SRL group after day 14. The primary endpoint was renal function at 6 months using creatinine clearance (Cockcroft-Gault) and was(More)
The most widely used way of reconstruction of the urinary pathways in transplantations of the kidney is at present a ureteroneocysto anastomosis. In some patients this type of reconstruction is difficult, if not impossible (adhesions in the lesser pelvis of the recipient, atrophic urinary bladder, short ureter of the graft, transplantation of child(More)
BACKGROUND Surgical ablation is one of the most effective techniques for treatment of atrial fibrillation. Stable sinus rhythm is achieved and effective atrial contractions are restored in the majority of patients. The aim of the prospective study is to assess the presence of atrial transport function after surgical ablation of atrial fibrillation using(More)
INTRODUCTION Intoxicated patients represent only a minimum of the total number of cadaveric donors; however, their significance within the transplant program in the Czech Republic has recently been emphasized in connection with the so-called methanol affair. MATERIAL AND METHODS A retrospective analysis of methanol-poisoned patients who were declared(More)
In our article we inform about complete preoperative preparation and about required examinations before the scheduled cardiosurgical procedure. Important part of the preoperative preparation is also detailed instruction about the character of the operation, a way of its realization and about the operation risks.

Renal (kidney) transplantation is now a routine and the most successful form of renal replacement therapy. There is a long tradition of renal transplantation in the Czech Republic, The first was performed as early as 1961 in Hradec Kralove, and the programme as such was launched in 1966 with the first successful transplantation at the Institute of(More)
Manually assisted laparoscopic nephrectomy from a live donor combines the advantage of a mini-invasive approach with the advantage of the assisting hand in the abdominal cavity to which the surgeon is used from classical operations. The authors performed the first nephrectomy from a live donor by this method on May 13, 2002. Our initial experience with five(More)
The well-described disparity between the need for and the supply of organs suitable for transplant is growing. Because of this disparity, mortality of patients listed for transplant is increasing. Donors who die of intoxication (including victims of methanol poisoning) represent less than 1% of suitable donors and might be used to increase the supply of(More)
