Abstract:   (2064 Views)
A retrospective study was conducted on 50 pregnancies in 41 kidney transplant recipients. 37 pregnancies were successful (74%), while in 13 cases the pregnancy was lost (7 abortions,S intra-uterine fetal deaths and one therapeutic termination). The pregnancy course was uneventful in 38 cases (76%) but in 12 there were complications, such as hypertension or slight rise in serum creatinine. Pregnancy was terminated in one case because of acute rejection, which then responded well to treatment and graft function returned to normal. Two cases of congenital anomaly were detected.
