BACKGROUND It is generally accepted that kidneys procured from female donors may not perform optimally in male recipients, mostly due to their smaller size and nephron underdosing. Nowadays, conflicting results have been published regarding the detrimental effect of H-Y incompatibility on the long-term prognosis of male kidneys transplanted into female recipient. The aim of this study was an analysis of the impact of donor-recipient gender matching on early function and survival of grafts among… CONTINUE READING
