Abstract

Sixty-three primary and 21 retransplant cadaver kidney allografts were placed in 77 patients over a one-year period with three- to six-month follow-up. Eight primary grafts (12.7%) and six retransplants (28.6%) were lost to rejection. Patient mortality was 3.9%. There were no grafts lost and no deaths due to opportunistic infections. Renal function at 6 months after transplantation was similar in all primary transplant recipients regardless of risk factors, including advanced age, diabetes, or the need for postoperative dialysis. © 1985, National Kidney Foundation, Inc..
