Adequate Definition of Delayed Graft Function in Living and Deceased Donor Kidney Transplantation

It is required to establish an adequate definition of delayed graft function in deceased donor kidney transplantation. We attempt to compare various definitions of delayed graft function a...

Effect of Procrit (Epoetin Alfa) on Preventing Delayed Graft Function After Deceased Donor Renal Transplantation

Delayed graft function (DGF) is a major complication following deceased donor renal transplantation. The surgical procedure of harvesting a kidney from a cadaveric donor and implanting th...

RUCONEST® as a Therapeutic Strategy to Reduce the Incidence of Delayed Graft Function

An unmet medical need exists for therapeutic regimens in transplantation that allow immediate postoperative graft function, thereby improving graft survival. Delayed graft function (DGF) a...

Intra-graft Coagulation Events in Clinical Renal Transplantation and Delayed Graft Function

The purpose of this study is to investigate local activation of the coagulation system in the kidney graft during organ preservation and during early reperfusion in adult kidney transplant...

Furosemide Stress Test as a Predicting Biomarker for Delayed Graft Function in Kidney Transplantation.

Delayed graft function (DGF) could worsen early and long-term outcomes of kidney transplantation (KT). DGF is caused by several pre-transplantation and perioperative factors in both donors and recipie...

Delayed graft function in kidney transplantation.

Delayed graft function (DGF) has several long-term graft implications in the field of kidney transplantation and remains a challenge. The incidence of DGF is on the rise because of an increasing use o...

Long-term effects of delayed graft function duration on function and survival of deceased donor kidney transplants.

Delayed graft function (DGF) is a frequent complication after deceased donor kidney transplantation with an impact on the prognosis of the transplant. Despite this, long-term impact of DGF on graft fu...

Iliofemoral deep venous thrombosis in kidney transplant patients can cause graft dysfunction.

We present a series of kidney transplant dysfunction secondary to lower extremity deep venous thrombosis (DVT). A 70-year-old man underwent living unrelated kidney transplantation and presented 2 mo...

New Factors Predicting Delayed Graft Function: a Multi-Center Cohort Study of Kidney Donation After Brain Death Followed by Circulatory Death.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

General dysfunction of an organ occurring immediately following its transplantation. The term most frequently refers to renal dysfunction following KIDNEY TRANSPLANTATION.

A form of ischemia-reperfusion injury occurring in the early period following transplantation. Significant pathophysiological changes in MITOCHONDRIA are the main cause of the dysfunction. It is most often seen in the transplanted lung, liver, or kidney and can lead to GRAFT REJECTION.

The end-stage of CHRONIC RENAL INSUFFICIENCY. It is characterized by the severe irreversible kidney damage (as measured by the level of PROTEINURIA) and the reduction in GLOMERULAR FILTRATION RATE to less than 15 ml per min (Kidney Foundation: Kidney Disease Outcome Quality Initiative, 2002). These patients generally require HEMODIALYSIS or KIDNEY TRANSPLANTATION.

Transference of multiple tissues, such as muscle, bone, nerve, and skin, as a functional unit for reconstructive purposes. Blood supply to the transplanted tissues is maintained throughout the transplantation procedure with minimal ischemia. Maintenance of vascularity in the graft promotes its viability, function, and survival in the recipient.

The transference of a kidney from one human or animal to another.
