The purpose of this study was to assess outcomes of urological complications after kidney transplantation operation. Nine-hundred and sixty-five patients received a kidney transplant between 2000 and 2006. In total, 58 (6.01%) developed urological complications, including urinary leakage (n = 15, 1.55%), stenosis (n = 29, 3%), vesicoureteral reflux (VUR) (n(More)
BACKGROUND The aim of this study is to present results of patients who have undergone renal transplantation concurrent with bilateral or unilateral native nephrectomy, with a special focus on polycystic kidney disease (PKD). MATERIAL AND METHODS We presented the outcome of renal transplantation patients who have undergone native nephrectomy unilaterally(More)
Owing to the limited donor pool at transplant centers, grafts may be taken from marginal donors with congenital abnormalities, one of the most common of which is a fusion abnormality. Horseshoe kidneys may be transplanted to a single recipient en bloc or to 2 recipients after division. In our clinic, 3 grafts (1 obtained from a living donor and 2 from a(More)
BACKGROUND This study investigated the effect of caffeic acid phenethyl ester (CAPE) on acute necrotizing pancreatitis (ANP) induced by glycodeoxycholic acid in rats. CAPE, an active component of honeybee propolis, has previously been determined to have antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, antiviral, and anticancer activities. MATERIALS AND METHODS Forty-eight(More)
BACKGROUND Acute allograft failure which occur intermittently after renal transplantation caused by graft tortion is a very rare entity. We here report highly unusual case of recurrent episodes of acute allograft dysfunction two years after kidney transplantation secondary to ischemic tubular necrosis caused by tortion of renal pedicle due to rotation of(More)

The aim of this study was to investigate the influence of enalaprilat on acute necrotizing pancreatitis (ANP) induced by glycodeoxycholic acid in rats. The induction of ANP resulted in a significant increase in the mortality rate, pancreatic necrosis, serum activity of amylase, alanine aminotransferase (ALT), and interleukin-6 (IL-6), lactate dehydrogenase(More)
INTRODUCTION Renal transplantation is not contraindicated in end-stage renal disease developing as a result of complication of overactive bladder with uninhibited detrusor contractions. As an amendatory surgical approach, augmentation ileo-cystoplasty is the preferred option to achieve a low intravesical storage pressure. However, the timing of the(More)
