Glomerular filtration rate assessment in individuals after orthotopic liver transplantation based on serum cystatin C levels.

Abstract

Individuals after orthotopic liver transplantation (OLT) often show renal dysfunction, which may substantially affect the post-OLT course. Renal function after OLT is commonly assessed by means of serum creatinine (S(cr)) concentration or renal creatinine clearance (C(cr)). A glomerular filtration rate (GFR) estimate based on S(cr) level is not accurate… (More)
