INTRODUCTION Although splenectomy has been employed in most documented protocols for ABO-incompatible kidney transplantation (ABO-ILKT), its utility is not yet determined. The aim of this study was to evaluate the long-term results of ABO-ILKT with splenectomy, and also compare the outcome of ABO-ILKT with splenectomy versus non-splenectomy. METHODS We did a retrospective study of ABO-incompatible living donor kidney transplants at our institution and affiliated hospital between January 2001… CONTINUE READING
