Orthotopic renal transplantation in the rabbit.


A technique of orthotopic renal transplantation in rabbits is described. The technique has been evolved in an experience of over 400 grafts, and difficulties encountered in producing satisfactory anaesthesia and techniques of anastomosis and in obtaining reliable graft function postoperatively have been defined and overcome. These difficulties are discussed and detailed results of the last 100 grafts are given.
