BACKGROUND Although acute vascular rejection (AVR) is associated with a high risk of graft loss, it remains unclear whether AVR with accompanied cellular or humoral rejection (AHR) has dissimilar outcomes. The aim of this study was to examine the association between subtypes of AVR and graft loss. METHODS We assessed patients who provided biopsy samples for acute allograft rejection from 1998 to 2014. To investigate distinct rejection patterns, we retrospectively assessed rejection episodes… CONTINUE READING
