The increase in patients on dialysis awaiting transplantation has led to the use of grafts from suboptimal donors. The aim of this study was to analyze the function of suboptimal grafts. The secondary objectives were to study vascular and urological complications, as well as delayed renal function and acute rejection episodes. The study included 135 transplantations performed over 4 years with 27% of grafts being from suboptimal donors. Early graft loss was 12%, of which 69% were due to… CONTINUE READING
