Abstract

A total of 42 patients who failed prior renal transplantation underwent repeat cadaveric transplantation cyclosporin A and low dose immunosuppression. Patient survival at 1 year was 100 per cent. Over-all graft survival was 83 per cent at 1 year, which was significantly better than had been obtained previously in this high risk group. Repeat cadaver transplantation with cyclosporin A is safe and offers those who have failed previous transplantation an opportunity for existence free of dialysis.
