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...
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...
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...
The objective of this study is to evaluate the safety and efficacy of conversion from tacrolimus to sirolimus early after kidney transplantation in patients with delayed graft function (DG...
The purpose of this trial is to evaluate the reduction in incidence and severity of delayed graft function with kidney allografts from donors >45 years after brain death (DBD).
Delayed graft function (DGF) is a common complication after kidney transplantation in the era of accepting an equal number of brain- and circulatory-death donor kidneys in the Netherlands. To identify...
This study focused on the value of quantitatively analyzed and qualitatively graded renal scintigraphy in relation to the expected duration of delayed graft function after kidney transplantation. A mo...
During kidney transplantation, intraoperative fluid management can affect post-transplant graft function. It is unclear whether or not central venous pressure (CVP) monitoring is required to guide flu...
Delayed graft function (DGF) is a common complication following kidney transplantation adversely affecting graft outcomes. Donation after brain death followed by circulatory death (DBCD), a novel dona...
Calcineurin inhibitor (CNI) toxicity leads to ESRD in almost half of long-term survivors after lung transplantation, some of them receiving kidney transplants. Little is known about the outcomes of ki...
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.
