Abstract

The short term results of renal retransplantation are probably related to the efficacious prevention of severe acute rejection episodes. Similarly, long term results could be related with the development of chronic rejection, one of which most important determinants is probably the number and severity of acute rejection episodes. There is not adequate evidence supporting aggressive induction protocols including monoclonal antibodies for first cadaveric renal transplantation. The results of such attempts in retransplantation are even more scarce.
