Mun // Kidney International;Feb1999, Vol. 55 Issue 2, p692
Early graft function and patient survival following cadaveric renal transplantation. Background. The influence of events that occur early following renal transplantation such as delayed graft function (DGF) and acute rejection on long-term graft survival has been widely reported, but its...
- Dialysis modality and the risk of allograft thrombosis in adult renal transplant recipients. Ojo, Akinlolu O.; Hanson, Julie A.; Wolfe, Robert A.; Agodoa, Lawrence Y.; Leavey, Sean F.; Leichtman, Alan; Young, Eric W.; Port, Friedrich K. // Kidney International;May1999, Vol. 55 Issue 5, p1952
Dialysis modality and the risk of allograft thrombosis in adult renal transplant recipients. Background. Renal vascular thrombosis (RVT) is a rare but catastrophic complication of renal transplantation. Although a plethora of risk factors has been identified, a large proportion of cases of RVT...
- A comparison of transplant outcomes in peritoneal and hemodialysis patients. Snyder, Jon J. // Kidney International;May2003, Vol. 63 Issue 5, p1956
Responds to Miguel Perez and colleagues' comments on the author's article regarding the impact of dialysis modality at the time of renal transplant on the outcome of the transplant intervention. Difference in the rate of graft failure; Effect of peritoneal dialysis versus hemodialysis on graft...
- A comparison of transplant outcomes in peritoneal and hemodialysis patients. Perez Fontan, Miguel; Rodriguez-Carmona, Ana // Kidney International;May2003, Vol. 63 Issue 5, p1956
Comments on Jon J. Snyder and colleagues' article regarding the impact of dialysis modality at the time of renal transplant on the outcome of the transplant intervention. Difference in early graft function between peritoneal dialysis and hemodialysis; Difference in graft survival.
- Dialysis is not the waiting room for transplantation. Curran, David // Journal of Renal Nursing;Nov2013, Vol. 5 Issue 6, p273
The author discusses aspects of organ transplantation which could be a treatment option for patients with chronic kidney disease. He highlights the risk in drug dose changes and organ transplantation wherein patients are not fortunate enough to receive the transplant. He mentions that some renal...
- Risk of Dialysis Treatment Before Renal Transplant. Zepf, Bill // American Family Physician;10/1/2001, Vol. 64 Issue 7, p1247
Presents an abstract of the study `Effect of the Use or Nonuse of Long-Term Dialysis on the Subsequent Survival of Renal Transplants From Living Donors,' by K.C. Mange et al., from the March 8, 2001 issue of the `New England Journal of Medicine.'
- Prognostic value for immediate function of one-hour renal allograft biopsy. Hawking, K.M. // British Medical Journal;12/6/1975, Vol. 4 Issue 5996, p559
Examines the biopsy specimens of transplanted kidneys to evaluate the correlation with post-transplant anuria requiring dialysis. Findings on variation of tubular degeneration; Absence of correlation between glomerular changes and impaired renal function; Relationship between edema and dialysis.
- How Diabetes, Dialysis go Together. // BioWorld Today;10/25/2010, Vol. 21 Issue 206, Special section p2
The article focuses on a report by scientists from the University of Bristol published in an issue of "Cell Metabolism" which explained why most people with diabetes require dialysis or kidney transplantation.
- Evaluation of the Medically Complex Living Kidney Donor. Caliskan, Yasar; Yildiz, Alaattin // Journal of Transplantation;2012, p1
Due to organ shortage and difficulties for availability of cadaveric donors, living donor transplantation is an important choice for having allograft. Live donor surgery is elective and easier to organize prior to starting dialysis thereby permitting preemptive transplantation as compared to...
