Kidney allograft dysfunction due to ipsilateral thigh arteriovenous graft.

Kidney allograft dysfunction due to ipsilateral thigh arteriovenous graft. J Vasc Access. 2019 Sep 23;:1129729819877320 Authors: Agrawal N, Garg N, Adapa S, Cardarelli F Abstract Arteriovenous graft in the thigh is used not infrequently for hemodialysis. Outcomes with this lower extremity dialysis access are generally comparable to upper extremity access and superior to long-term catheter use. However, it could have significant implications in a patient getting a kidney transplant. Here we describe a case of thigh arteriovenous graft causing kidney allograft dysfunction in a new transplant recipient, and this resolved with graft ligation.

Abstract Outcome of pediatric kidney transplantation (KT) has improved over the last several decades. We retrospectively reviewed the outcomes pediatric KT in King Faisal Specialist Hospital and Research Center-Jeddah, Saudi Arabia. Between May 2013 and November 2016, we performed renal transplantation in 47 children, 30 (64%) males, and 17 (36%) females. All patients received antibody induction with basiliximab or antithymocyte globulin along with triple immunosuppressive therapy with tacrolimus, mycophenolate mofetil and steroids. Twenty-four (51%) and 14 (30%) patients were on hemodialysis and peritoneal dialys...

AbstractRenal transplant outcomes have been shown to be impacted by ethnicity. Prior studies have evaluated the disparate transplant outcomes of Black recipients and recipients of Black donors. However, it has remained unclear whether other donor ethnicities independent of medical comorbidities can influence transplant outcomes. Utilizing the Scientific Registry of Transplant Recipients (SRTR) (with greater than 100,000 patients), we evaluated the effect of each ethnicity, Black, American Indian, Hispanic, Native Hawaiian or other Pacific Islander, and Asian as compared to White recipients on adverse kidney transplant outc...

Abstract Cardiovascular mortality accounts for most deaths among hemodialysis patients and far exceeds the cardiovascular mortality rate of the general population. One important aspect of cardiovascular risk among dialysis patients is chronic inflammation. Iatrogenic sources of chronic inflammation in the form of failed renal allografts, old clotted arteriovenous grafts, and hemodialysis catheters play important, sometimes, unrecognized roles in this inflammatory state. There is ample observational evidence that these sources of inflammation are associated with hypoalbuminemia, erythropoetin-resistant anemia, and ...

It is well recognized that the shortage of available kidneys has resulted in long wait times for dialysis patients seeking transplantation and that many patients die before receiving an allograft. Yet, the data presented by Reese et  al.,1 in their early, thoughtful proposal to begin considering transplanting hepatitis C virus (HCV)–positive kidneys, reveal that in the United States between 2005 and 2014, 4144 kidneys from 3273 deceased donors with hepatitis C antibody were discarded. With the recent development of highly ef fective, well-tolerated oral agents to treat HCV infection, it would seem desirable to t...

Chronic diseases limit daily activity and reduce health-related quality of life. End-stage renal disease (ESRD) and uremia result from untreated chronic kidney disease (CKD). The prevalence of CKD and ESRD has increased over the past several years (Okpechi et al., 2013). Renal replacement therapy is necessary for survival in patients with ESRD and includes hemodialysis (HD), peritoneal dialysis (PD), and renal transplantation. However, peritonitis is a common complication of PD, and renal allograft rejection is also common (Lafrance et al., 2012; Briggs 2001).

Abstract Infection-related glomerulonephritis (IRGN) is an immune-mediated glomerulo-nephritis, most commonly caused by bacterial infections. Although there is an increased incidence of infectious episodes in renal transplant recipients, IRGN as a cause of de novo glomerulonephritis is rarely seen probably due to impaired immunity. We hereby report a 28-year-old male renal transplant recipient, who developed IRGN following impetigenous skin lesions after six years of transplant. He developed rapid worsening of allograft function and was started on hemodialysis. Allograft renal biopsy showed diffuse exudative endoc...

Conclusion: SORO‐ESRD contributed significantly to late renal allograft loss and return to hemodialysis with 100% initial dialysis catheter rate. Potentially preventable causes of AKI leading to SORO‐ESRD were identified. The application of experience gained from such studies would help reduce late renal allograft loss and the need for re‐transplantation. This would further help reduce the yawning gap between need and availability of donor kidney organs both here in the United States and around the world. Larger studies are warranted.
