High levels of tumor necrosis factor-alpha, interleukin-2, and gamma-interferon appeared in the circulation of kidney transplant recipients after the first injection of the monoclonal antibody OKT3. This initial injection was systematically followed by fever. The three cytokines were released in all patients (n = 9), with peak serum levels of tumor necrosis(More)
The aim of the present retrospective study was to uncover the factor(s) responsible for the poor outcome of cadaver kidney grafts from female donors in male recipients. The 741 transplantations performed at our center from August 1983 to September 1997 were distributed into four groups according to recipient and donor gender: female donor to female(More)
There are not many publications describing long-term follow-up of persistent hyperparathyroidism requiring surgical treatment after kidney transplantation (PHSKT). In some patients adenomas, rather than multiglandular disease, have been incriminated as the cause of PHSKT. We reviewed the charts of 45 patients followed for 12 to 146 months (median 45 months)(More)
Both kidneys of an anencephalic newborn were transplanted into a 23-year-old male patient. Hemodialysis was required for 3 weeks postoperatively. Both organs increased in size but did not reach the normal volume of an adult kidney. 3 years post-transplantation, the patient is doing well with a plasma creatinine level of 1.5 mg/dl. Technical problems are(More)
HYPOTHESIS Parathyroid glands are normally surrounded (entirely or partially) by fatty tissue. Subcutaneous parathyroid grafts are thus located in a normal environment. Therefore, we postulated that the late results of subcutaneous implantation of parathyroid tissue in uremic patients should be at least as good as those reported for intramuscular grafting.(More)
