The role of hyperlipidaemia for the outcome of renal transplantation was evaluated in a prospective study involving 151 patients. Graft losses were associated with more pronounced pre-transplant lipid abnormalities. An increased risk of graft loss during the first two post-transplant years was found in patients with marked pre-transplant hypercholesterolaemia (> or = 6.9 mmol L-1, P = 0.014; relative risk 2.2). Hypercholesterolaemia > or = 6.9 mmol L-1 at 6 months after transplantation, present… CONTINUE READING
