Abstract:   (1934 Views)
Between April 5, 1988 and Sept. 3, 1992, 204 cases of kidney transplantation were performed using modified Licht's implantation technique and from Sept. 4, 1992 to Sept. 3, 1993, 57 cases were done with Barry's method. Age ranged from 11 to 60 years and in both groups had nearly similar distribution. Kidneys were provided from live donors. Immunosuppressive therapy was similar in all patients and included cyclosporin A, azathioprine and corticosteroids.I-3 After transplantation, all patients were followed and meticulous attention was paid to determining the occurrence of possible urologic complications. Sonography, LV.V. and/or radioisotope scanning was performed as indicated. In this study, 15 patients (7 % ) in the Licht group and one patient (2%) in the Barry group developed urological complications.
