Organ transplantation is considered to be one of the greatest achievements of contemporary medicine. It is a life-saving method for patients with an end-stage organ insufficiency. After transplantation patients dismissed from the surgical department require complex medical care, including immunosuppression monitoring and individual wound care. In general, post-transplantation care is divided into: 1) early (care) - occurring just after surgery, during the patient's first hospitalisation; and 2) late (after) (care) - occurring in the following months and years. The aim of the study was to describe operative medical procedures performed in organ transplant recipients in the internal medicine department. It should be pointed out that these procedures were applied at different time points after transplantations. Their significance is both diagnostic and curative, thus, of paramount importance. Standard medical procedures after organ transplantation are as follows: urinary bladder cathetering, post-operative wound care, wounds and peri-organ drainage. To the non-standard procedures belong: kidney and/or liver biopsy, bone marrow aspiration, paracenthesis and several types of vascular accesses. In this study, essential information for the understanding of each mentioned procedure action algorithm as well as possible subsequent complications has been described. Patients gave formal consent to use the materials with their photographs.
