Between 1989 and 2002, 178 renal transplants were performed in 168 pediatric patients in Chile. The mean age was 10.9 +/- 3.7 years (range 1 to 17.9). End-state renal disease etiologies were: congenital renal hypoplasia/dysplasia, chronic glomerulonephritis, and reflux nephropathy. Seventy received a graft from a living donor (LD), and 108 from a cadaveric(More)
Eight cases of unusual radiolucent filling defects in the renal pelvis and calices are reported. With reference to the literature and these cases, such defects have been classified etiologically as tumors, calculi, blood clots, air bubbles, congenital anomalies, vascular phenomena, infections and associated conditions, foreign bodies and miscellaneous(More)
Cytologic study of urine from 100 patients with transitional cell cancer of the upper urinary tract revealed that findings on the voided and catheterized specimens correlated well with grade and stage of the tumor. However, there was a significantly greater positive yield with urine specimens obtained by ureteral catheterization than by voiding.(More)
Hypertensive rabbits with a clip on the renal artery of their solitary remaining kidney show an abrupt decrease in blood pressure after the arterial constriction is released. Although the mechanism underlying this phenomenon remains controversial, some experimental evidence suggests that it could be humorally mediated. The involvement of prostaglandins was(More)
Alemtuzumab (ALT), a humanized monoclonal anti-CD52 antibody, was introduced in solid organ transplantation as an induction agent. ALT associated with anticalcineurins has provided a low incidence of acute rejection episodes (ARE) and potential tolerogenic properties. We analyzed the clinical outcomes and effects on peripheral Treg of renal transplant(More)
BACKGROUND HLA Matchmaker is a computer algorithm developed to evaluate donor/receptor compatibility comparing sequences of polymorphic aminoacids (eplets) present in human leukocyte antigen (HLA) molecules. The aim of this study was to evaluate the predictive value of HLA Matchmaker for patient and graft survival, graft survival free of rejection, and the(More)
OBJECTIVE Renal transplantation is the most successful therapy to improve survival and quality of life for patients with end-stage renal disease. Living donors have been used as an alternative to reduce the stay on the waiting list. Laparoscopic living donor nephrectomy has become the standard procedure for renal transplantation. Minimally invasive surgery(More)
Of 215 patients who underwent renal transplantations at the Mayo Clinic, six (2.8 percent) developed perirenal lymphoceles. Diagnosis was made between 5 weeks and 14 months after operation. In all six patients, renal function decreased and eventually a lower quadrant abdominal mass developed. Ipsilateral leg edema, fluid retention, and development of(More)
