This is a Phase II-III multi-center prospective randomized controlled clinical trial of incident adult renal transplant patients. The primary objective of this study is to determine if th...
The aim of this study is to determine if amiloride, a diuretic drug, is capable of increasing renal salt excretion, lowering blood pressure and inhibiting uPA in kidney transplant recipien...
To combat post-transplant weight gain, we seek to expand Stanford Kidney Transplant's multidisciplinary platform to include physical activity monitoring and coaching using the Apple Watch.
This study is being done to create a kidney transplant database with information from many transplant centers for the purpose of studying ways to help improve transplant outcomes and the c...
Our primary goal is to investigate any hidden burden upon the grafted kidney from the increase of serum fluoride resulted from sevoflurane, versus isoflurane.
Kidney transplant is known to be the first choice therapy for end stage chronic kidney disease, also for its positive effects on kidney transplant recipients cardiovascular morbidity and mortality. Se...
to assesses microvascular complications in renal transplant recipients with posttransplant diabetes mellitus (PTDM).
We aimed to evaluate the impact of induction on outcomes in low-immunological risk kidney transplant recipients (KTRs) using a mate-kidney model. Using OPTN/UNOS database, we identified three groups o...
Kidney transplant recipients (KTRs) are at risk for reactivation and complicated infection due to Coccidioides. Pre-transplant serological screening should provide benefit for patients from endemic ar...
Many heart transplant recipients experience declining kidney function following transplantation. We aimed to quantify change in kidney function in heart transplant recipients stratified by pre-transp...
Expenditure of energy during physical activities. Intensity of exertion may be measured by rate of OXYGEN CONSUMPTION; HEAT produced, or HEART RATE. Perceived exertion, a psychological measure of exertion, is included.
Complications that affect patients during surgery. They may or may not be associated with the disease for which the surgery is done, or within the same surgical procedure.
A derivative of sirolimus and an inhibitor of TOR SERINE-THREONINE KINASES. It is used to prevent GRAFT REJECTION in heart and kidney transplant patients by blocking cell proliferation signals. It is also an ANTINEOPLASTIC AGENT.
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.
The outer zone of the KIDNEY, beneath the capsule, consisting of KIDNEY GLOMERULUS; KIDNEY TUBULES, DISTAL; and KIDNEY TUBULES, PROXIMAL.
