Objectives: The aim of this study was to investigate the causes and effects of acute tubular necrosis (ATN) in a program of cadaver renal transplantation. Materials and Methods: We analyzed 774 cadaver donor renal transplantantions performed between June 1980 and September 1998. We examined the major donor, recipient and graft-related factors, and their influence in graft outcome. Statistics included univariate and multivariate analysis. Graft and patient survival rates were calculated by… CONTINUE READING
