Purpose: We report herein the incidence of and ways of management of urological complications after living related renal transplantation.
Methods: Between 1990 and 2012, we performed 104 live related renal transplantation. We retro- spectively studied recipient and donor characteristics, cold ischemia time, urological complications, as well as graft and patient 5-year survival rates.
Results: Fouteen urological complications were reported among fourteen patients We noted 35.7% Clavien IIIa, 64.2% Clavien IIIb, and 7.1% Clavien IVa grade. We reported the changes in the ways of management of urological complications from open surgical repair to conservation and minimally invasive techniques.
Conclusion: Urologic complications appear frequently after renal transplantation. The surgical techniques involved are highly specialized and must be individualized with each patient.View/Download pdf
