BACKGROUND: Security of organ donor attracts more attention, because donor complication and transplantation failure always occur following renal transplantation. Therefore, living-related kidney transplantation should be paid much attention in order to make sure life and quality of life. OBJECTIVE: To investigate the safety of living-related kidney transplantation. METHODS: A total of 38 cases of living relative donor kidney transplantation were retrospectively analyzed. Before transplantation, identify of patients should be determined, and all patients provided the informed consent. The general data of patients were sufficiently dialyzed before transplantation to improve the body status. Tacrolimus or mixture of cyclosporine A, mycophenolate, and adrenal cortex hormone were administrated following transplantation to observe renal function, complication incidence, and acute rejection reaction. RESULTS AND CONCLUSION: Due to short waiting time, low price, and long-term survival rate, living-relative donor kidney transplantation has low risk factors for donor. However, the safety still needs to be sufficiently evaluated for donors and recipients. Source
