Summary

FROM January 1st 1975 to December 31st, 1984, 466 renal transplants were performed at our institution. There were 454 case records available for study. There were twenty-eight urological complications in the series. This represents an overall incidence of 6.2%. Eighteen of these complications were ureteral fistulae and ten were ureteral obstructions. Surgical correction was successful in 85% of these patients.
