Renal graft loss is less likely among transplant recipients who are employed full time when they get their kidneys and at one year postoperatively, according to researchers.
Renal transplant recipients have similar death-censored graft survival regardless of age, according to researchers in Norway.
Bacterial endocarditis is more likely to develop among patients on a waiting list for a kidney transplant than among kidney transplant recipients, data show.
Transplantation of kidneys from older donors is followed by increased stiffening of the recipient’s aorta, which may help to explain the higher rates of CVD and death in patients receiving kidneys from expanded criteria donors, according to French researchers.
It may be reasonable to postpone renal transplantation in patients with certain types of renal failure because late recovery of kidney function might occur, according to British researchers.
