Chronic Renal Failure in Non-Renal Organ Transplant Recipients

ID: 433655

Recovery of the patients after transplantation of non-renal organs may be complicated by multi-faceted chronic renal failure (CKD) which is regarded as an independent risk factor of graft dysfunction and mortality. The occurrence of CKD in non-renal transplant recipients depends mainly on a type of transplanted organ, immunosuppressive protocol and pre-transplant kidney dysfunction. Several concomitant diseases including arterial hypertension, dyslipidemia, diabetes mellitus, hepatitis or perioperative renal injury may contribute to chronic kidney disease. Current data suggest that a problem of kidney insufficiency in non-renal organ transplant recipients may still be underscored. Clinicians ought be aware that renal dysfunction should be added to a list of major post-transplant complications.
