OBJECTIVE Renal transplantation with a well-functioning graft leads to a rapid restoration of endocrine and sexual functions. The aim of this study was to examine our experience with pregnancies among renal transplant patients, particularly with regard to their impact on graft function. PATIENTS AND METHODS We analyzed 10 pregnancies in 7 renal transplant(More)
BACKGROUND Native arteriovenous fistula (AVF) represents the best vascular approach for chronic hemodialysis. The aim of this study was to determine the survival of the first AVF and to identify the factors responsible for poor AVF survival. MATERIALS AND METHODS A retrospective study was conducted on 96 chronic hemodialysis patients benefiting from the(More)
The aim of this study was to report our experience of pregnancy in renal transplant (RT) patients and its medium and long-term effects on the renal graft as well as the maternal fetal complications. We studied 21 pregnancies in 12 RT patients with mean age of 29.9 ± 5.3 years. The mean duration of RT to 1 st pregnancy was 42 (21-68.5) months and the median(More)
UNLABELLED The diabetic nephropathy is among the first causes of end stage renal disease worldwide. However, the diabetics are often lately refered to the nephrologists. The goal of our study is to determine the stage of the diabetic nephropathy, its risk factors and to appreciate its evolution after a nephrology management in Morocco. METHODS Prospective(More)
Sclerodermic renal crisis is defined as a severe arterial hypertension or rapidly progressive glomerulonephritis in a sclerodermic patient, associated with anuria due to no other cause but systemic sclerodermia. It constitutes a rare and dangerous complication. The renal prognosis can be effectively improved by converting enzyme inhibitors, allowing a(More)
The occurrence of non-diabetic renal disease (NDRD) in diabetic patients is well established, with different frequencies from all around the world. We report 13 cases of isolated NDRD in diabetic patients diagnosed in our unit and present our biopsy criteria in these patients. From January 2000 to December 2008, 13 diabetic patients with suspected NDRD(More)
The aim of this study is to investigate the prevalence of hepatitis C virus (HCV) and hepatitis B virus (HBV) in maintenance hemodialysis (HD) and continuous ambulatory peritoneal dialysis patients at the Rabat University Hospital and to identify the major risk factors for transmission. A retrospective study was performed in 67 chronic HD and 36 peritoneal(More)
UNLABELLED Nasal carriage of Staphylococcus aureus may be responsible for some serious infections among hemodialyzed patients. Its pathogenic potential and commensal nature allows for an easy transmission both in and out of hospital environment. PURPOSE This study was to assess the prevalence of S. aureus nasal carriage, to determine its frequency and(More)
To determine the prevalence of post-kidney transplantation diabetes (PTDM) and to assess its risk factors, we retrospectively studied 92 non-diabetic kidney transplant patients. The immunosuppressive drugs used to prevent rejection included prednisone, a calcineurin inhibitor (cyclosporine or tacrolimus) and an antimetabolite (azathioprine or mycofenolate(More)
BACKGROUND There is wide variation in clinical presentation and outcome of lupus nephritis (LN) among different ethnic groups. Few data for LN exist on North Africans, especially those from Morocco. The aim of our study was to review retrospectively the features and outcome of LN in Moroccan patients. PATIENTS AND METHODS We performed a single-center(More)
