Fibromuscular dysplasia in donor kidneys — experience with three cases
- 22 Downloads
In 1987, three patients received kidney grafts bearing medial fibroplasia at our hospital. Two of the grafts were from a cadaveric donor and one was from a living related donor kidney. The vascular affection was known before transplantation. Only one of the recipients developed stenosis and hypertension. With balloon catheter dilatation, the progressive stenosis of the renal graft artery could, however, be successfully corrected.
