BACKGROUND Vascular complications in renal transplant patients are a well-known issue in post transplant patient care. If malfunctioning of the renal transplant is suspected to be caused by vascular complications an early diagnosis and therapy is required to maintain the renal transplant. Computed tomography (CT), digital substraction angiography (DSA) and radioisotope renography are the gold standard imaging modalities to diagnose vascular complications. OBJECTIVE To analyse the sensitivity… CONTINUE READING
