The aim of this study is to determine the correlation between the predonation computed tomography (CT)-based calculated kidney volume and post-transplant renal function in recipients of renal transplants and to compare two different CT techniques.

Kidney transplantation is the treatment of choice in patient with end stage chronic kidney disease, offering the best long term survival and greater Quality of Life in this group of patients. Graft vo...
Dent's disease is a rare X-linked recessive disorder that manifests in childhood or early adulthood and can lead to end-stage renal disease (ESRD). It occurs in males, who are hemizygous. In patients ...
Living kidney donors (LKDs) with obesity have increased perioperative risks and risk of end-stage renal disease after donation. Consequently, obesity serves as a barrier to donation, as many transplan...
Long-term studies have demonstrated a slight increased risk for end-stage renal disease (ESRD) for living kidney donors (LKD). In France, living kidney donation doubled within the past 10 years. We ...
Intrarenal Doppler ultrasonography is a non-invasive method to evaluate the renal blood flow in patients with renal arterial stenosis as well as chronic kidney diseases (CKD). Until recently, the rela...
Kidney transplantation from living donors has been shown to carry many benefits over deceased donor transplantation. Because of benefits such as shorter waiting times and improved outcome ...
This study will evaluate the differences between open surgical kidney donation and laparoscopic kidney donation on kidney donors and recipients. Both procedures are standard surgeries used...
Kidney biopsy represents the criterion standard to obtain information on diagnosis and prognosis of renal dysfunctions . Many patients with kidney disease have a predisposition to bleed, e...
A Comparative Study to Assess the Differences in Kidney Structure and Function Between Young Kidney Donors Aged 18 to 45 Years and Older Kidney Donors Aged 55 Years and Above Before and After Kidney Donation for Transplantation.
It is our purpose in this study to compare the kidney structure and function of older patients to that of young patients before and after removal of a single kidney for transplant donation...
Objective: The main target of this study was to research the early changes in pulmonary function and intrarenal hemodynamics, then research the correlation between the pulmonary function a...
Conditions in which the KIDNEYS perform below the normal level in the ability to remove wastes, concentrate URINE, and maintain ELECTROLYTE BALANCE; BLOOD PRESSURE; and CALCIUM metabolism. Renal insufficiency can be classified by the degree of kidney damage (as measured by the level of PROTEINURIA) and reduction in GLOMERULAR FILTRATION RATE. The most severe form is KIDNEY FAILURE. Renal function may deteriorate slowly (RENAL INSUFFICIENCY, CHRONIC) or precipitously (RENAL INSUFFICIENCY, ACUTE).
Distention of KIDNEY with the presence of PUS and suppurative destruction of the renal parenchyma. It is often associated with renal obstruction and can lead to total or nearly total loss of renal function.
The amount of PLASMA flowing to the parts of the KIDNEY that function in the production of urine. It is the amount of plasma perfusing the KIDNEY TUBULES per unit time, generally measured by P-AMINOHIPPURATE clearance. It should be differentiated from RENAL PLASMA FLOW which is approximately 10% greater than the effective renal plasma flow.
Conditions in which the KIDNEYS perform below the normal level for more than three months. Chronic kidney insufficiency is classified by five stages according to the decline in GLOMERULAR FILTRATION RATE and the degree of kidney damage (as measured by the level of PROTEINURIA). The most severe form is the end-stage renal disease (CHRONIC KIDNEY FAILURE). (Kidney Foundation: Kidney Disease Outcome Quality Initiative, 2002)
A complication of kidney diseases characterized by cell death involving KIDNEY PAPILLA in the KIDNEY MEDULLA. Damages to this area may hinder the kidney to concentrate urine resulting in POLYURIA. Sloughed off necrotic tissue may block KIDNEY PELVIS or URETER. Necrosis of multiple renal papillae can lead to KIDNEY FAILURE.

Chronic kidney disease (CKD), also known as chronic renal disease, is a progressive loss in renal function over a period of months or years. The symptoms of worsening kidney function are non-specific, and might include feeling generally unwell and experi...
