The use of bilateral adult renal allografts - a method to optimize function from donor kidneys with suboptimal nephron mass.

Abstract

Alternatives to traditional organ donor usage has allowed expansion of the organ donor pool to help compensate for the increasing disparity between recipients and donors. The use of bilateral adult renal transplants is a novel idea to salvage older donor kidneys with suboptimal nephron mass that would otherwise be destined for discard. Ten renal transplants… (More)
