We analyzed 307 cadaver kidney transplantations performed since 1976 at the University Hospital of the University of Navarra. Two series, the historical and the current one, are presented. In the former, cyclosporine A was not included in the immunosuppressor protocol.
The surgical complications were evaluated in both series and their influence on the survival of the allograft. The current series showed a significant decrease in surgical complications. Allograft survival in the historical series was influenced by surgical complications in general, and vascular and other complications in particular.
The current series was influenced by surgical complications in general, and urinary and vascular complications in particular. The multivariate analysis showed that surgical complications were one of the most important prognostic factor in both series.
