Abstract

Based on more than 30 years of renal transplantation experience at Montefiore Medical Center we conclude: 1. Improved patient and graft survival can be achieved in the cadaveric transplant recipient despite increasing co-morbidities. 2. Patients at the extremes of age (< 10 or > 60) can undergo renal transplantation safely, with patient and graft survival rates approaching those of the general recipient population. 3. Results of transplantation in African-Americans are as good as non African-Americans at 3 years. Beyond that point the graft survival curves diverge. Well matched (0-1 HLA mismatches) kidneys in the African-American patient do as well if not better than other ethnic groups. However, African-Americans do not receive as many well matched kidneys as others.
