Kidney transplantation in patients with end stage renal disease is preferred to dialysis because transplantation provides a better quality of life andimproved survival. However, the gap between the supply and demand for a renal allograft is widening and the waiting time is increasing. Iranian protocol, a controlled transplant program supported by the government for living unrelated donors, was ...
Kidney Transplantation in children is the treatment of choice to treat end stage renal disease. Improvements in immunosuppressive management have dramatically reduced the risk of early acute rejection and graft loss, however the long term results in terms of graft survival and morbidity still require search for new immunosuppressive regimens. Reducing of side effects are the challenges for impr...

Renal transplantation is considered one of the best long-term therapies for
chronic renal failure, but unfortunately the incidence of malignancy significantly
increases in renal transplant recipients. We analyzed nine cases of malignancy in
200 renal transplant recipients occurring in a 12-year follow-up in Imam hospital
of Tehran University, Tehran, Iran. According to this study, the organ...

Neurologic and psychologic complications are usually related to drug toxicity,
infections or symptoms induced by deterioration of renal allograft function.
Metabolic encephalopathy, hypertensive encephalopathy, cerebrovascular events,
and new-onset seizures have all been reported in organ-transplant recipients. Infections
can be caused by listeria, cryptococcus, nocardia, aspergillus and mu...

Purpose: The aim of this study was to determine left ventricular (LV) mass index via echocardiography in end-stage renal disease patients (ESRD) before and after renal transplantation, and its association with one-year survival. Materials and Methods: Forty-seven patients with ESRD who were candidate for renal transplantation were evaluated with echocardiography before and 4 months after the op...
Introduction: The aim of this study was to evaluate the frequency of skin diseases in kidney transplant recipients. Materials and Methods: This cross-sectional study was performed on 233 kidney transplant recipients in Ekbatan Hospital of Hamedan in 2004. The patients were examined by a dermatologist and diagnosis was made on the basis of clinical observations. Biopsies and scraping of the lesi...
The current status of bone marrow transplantation is reviewed. The diseases that are treatable with marrow transplantation, the basic transplant procedure, and the potential complications of marrow transplantation are discussed in detail. The future application of marrow transplantation to additional disease processes is considered.
Introduction: Polyuria and hypernatremia are common problems during the pretransplant care of brain-dead donors. They have not only important role in hemodynamic stability, but also may influence organ transplantation outcomes. The influence of donor hypernatremia in liver transplantation was reported. This study aimed to determine these effects on kidney allograft. Materials and Methods: We re...
Introduction: The aim of this study was to evaluate the attitudes of the residents of Ahwaz toward organ donation after brain death. Materials and Methods: A total of 1000 people between 15 and 70 years of age were selected by cluster sampling in Ahwaz, south-west of Iran. A questionnaire was designed about the attitudes of the interviewees toward organ donation after brain death by themselves ...
Introduction: We aimed to evaluate the intralobar renal arteries indexes using the Doppler ultrasonography indexes, which have become the established method of kidney monitoring, in living unrelated kidney donors during the postnephrectomy period. Materials and Methods: In this prospective study, we evaluated and followed up 34 living unrelated kidney donors. The Doppler ultrasonography indexes...
