Abstract

Since 1979 we have performed 669 kidney transplantations (KT) in our unit, 613 first and 56 retransplantations (KRT). Among the causes of graft loss in our first graft group, recurrence of glomerulonephritis (GN) was the fifth in importance (4%) after death with functioning graft, chronic and acute rejections and vascular thrombosis. Thus, ten patients lost their grafts after recurrent glomerulopathy: focal segmental glomerulosclerosis (FSGS) (n = 3), membranoproliferative (n = 3), IgA (n = 2) and membranous (n = 2), after a post-KT period variable from some weeks to 15 years. We have attempted KRT for three of them.
