BACKGROUND Graft survival following renal retransplantation has been inferior to that following primary allografting, particularly in African Americans (AAs) receiving deceased-donor (DD) kidneys. METHODS Among 166 AA DD renal allograft recipients transplanted from July 2001 through July 2007, we compared the outcomes of 26 (16%) receiving a second graft(More)
Persistent hyponatremia and hypokalemia in the setting of hypertension may be a manifestation of an underlying hyperreninemic state. We present here a case of a patient who presented with a constellation of hypertension with severe polydipsia, subnephrotic proteinuria, with resistant hyponatremia and hypokalemia. Workup revealed an elevated plasma renin(More)
BACKGROUND Prior studies have demonstrated that African-American (AA) donor kidneys are independently associated with an increased risk for graft loss. METHODS We examined outcomes in comparable groups of AA deceased-donor (DD) kidney transplant patients receiving an AA donor (n=35) versus a Caucasian donor (C group; n=150) organ. RESULTS There were no(More)
BACKGROUND Little data are available regarding cancer incidence in separately analyzed African American renal allograft recipients, with no study examining in detail the incidence and relative distribution of individual post-transplant malignancies versus those occurring in Caucasians. METHODS We compared the incidence of nonskin cancer occurring in 495(More)
