Pregnancy Among Women with Kidney Transplantation: A 20-Years Single-Center Registry

Abstract Objective To assess maternal and perinatal outcomes in pregnancies after kidney transplantation in a tertiary center in Brazil. Methods Retrospective cohort of pregnancies in women with kidney transplantation at the Universidade Estadual de Campinas, from January 1995 until December 2017. Medical charts were reviewed, andmaternal and perinatal outcomes were described as means and frequencies. Renal function and blood pressure were evaluated during pregnancy and postpartum. Results A total of 22 women had at least 1 pregnancy during the considered timeinterval, and 3 of them had> 1 pregnancy, totalizing 25 pregnancies. The mean age at transplantation was of 24.6 ± 4.2 years old, and the mean time interval until pregnancy was of 67.8 ± 46.3months. Themost frequent complication during pregnancywas hypertension, which affected 11 (64.7%)women. The gestational age at delivery was 34.7 ± 4weeks, and 47% of these pregnancies were preterm ( 1 gesta ção, totalizado 25 gestações. A idade média no momento do transplante foi 24.6 ± 4.2 anos, e o tempo médio de intervalo até a gravidez foi de 67.8 ± 46.3 meses. A complicação mais frequente durante a gravidez foi a hipertensão, que acometeu 11 (64.7%) mulheres. A idade gestacional no par to foi de 34.7 ± 4 semanas, e 47% das gestações encerraram-se prematuramente (

The long-term efficacy and safety of RDN require further investigation. For the first time, we report BP changes and safety up to 7 years after RDN, compared to drug adjustment in the randomised Oslo RDN study. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Patients with treatment-resistant hypertension, defined...

Authors: Zhang W, Xu JZ, Lu XH, Li H, Wang D, Wang JG Abstract PURPOSE: We hypothesise that dietary sodium intake interacts with serum uric acid to influence blood pressure (BP) in children and adolescents. In the present study, we investigated ambulatory BP in relation to hyperuricaemia, dietary sodium intake and their interaction in children and adolescents with hypertension. MATERIALS AND METHODS:  A total of 616 study participants were 10-24 years old and had primary hypertension diagnosed after admission in a specialised inpatient ward. Ambulatory BP monitoring was performed during hospitalisat...

Conclusions: This review results revealed a low utilization of postnatal care service. Antenatal care service utilization has a positive effect on postnatal care service utilization. Policymakers and programmers better considered more antenatal care service use as one strategy of enhancing the utilization of postnatal care service. PMID: 33029402 [PubMed - in process]

Following successful kidney transplantation, recipients usually regain fertility. Post-engraftment pregnancies should be planned and the teratogenic mycophenolic acid should be replaced with azathioprine before conception. To avoid unintentional pregnancies, pre-conception counseling is mandatory in women of reproductive age who are scheduled for a kidney transplant. Counseling should be repeated after transplantation. Female recipients should receive advice to use long-acting reversible contraception and avoid pregnancy for a minimum of 1 year following transplantation. Conception should be deferred even longer in female ...

We examined the risk of adverse pregnancy outcomes in primiparous kidney donors compared to matched controls.MethodsFifty ‐nine women with a history of kidney donation prior to their first pregnancy with normal renal function and no history of kidney disease, diabetes or chronic hypertension were matched 1:4 by age (within 2 years) and race to women with two kidneys using data from an integrated healthcare delivery s ystem. Adverse pregnancy outcomes were defined as preterm delivery (delivery 3 days, infant death/transfer to acute facility and low birth weight (

AbstractPurpose of ReviewTo review the studies and practice guidelines on the preeclampsia risks in kidney donors and recipients.Recent FindingsThere is a small increased risk of gestational hypertension and preeclampsia in pregnancies that follow kidney donation. Kidney Disease Improving Global Outcomes (KDIGO) Clinical Practice Guideline (2017) and the 2015 American Society of Transplantation (AST) consensus conference statement recommends counseling kidney donors about this increased risk. There is no observed increase in fetal complications or eclampsia post-kidney donation. Preeclampsia is more commonly observed in ki...

ABSTRACT Background: Liver transplantation (LT) is a successful treatment for both acute liver failure and end‐stage liver disease. The number of women of reproductive age undergoing LT is increasing. Pregnancy outcomes are favourable but there is still a lack of prognostic markers. We aimed to identify factors predictive of adverse pregnancy outcomes in LT recipients. Methods: An analysis of all pregnancies occurring in LT recipients from 1989‐2016 at King's College Hospital was performed. Clinical data of 162 conceptions in 93 women was reviewed. Descriptive and regression analyses were done to examine associations b...

Mats Brännström and colleagues1 reported the first livebirth after uterus transplantation. The pregnancy was complicated by pre-eclampsia, resulting in preterm delivery. Immunosuppression, aged uterus, and assisted reproduction—individually or together—might explain development of pre-eclampsia. The patient had congenital absence of uterus and vagina associated with unilateral renal agenesis. Presence of only one kidney is thought to be a possible risk factor for pre-eclampsia in kidney donors. Gestational hypertension or pre-eclampsia are more likely to be diagnosed in kidney donors than in healthy non-donors.
