Abstract

During the period Feb. 1967--Aug. 1976 94 first renal transplantations were performed using living related donors and histocompatibility tests. Eight transplantations were performed on children under 15 years old and four on patients over 50 years old. The rest of the patients were between 15 and 50 years old. No exclusions were performed. 22 patients expired, seven of these with a well functioning graft. The patient survival (P.S.) was 90% at 1 year, 87% at 2 years and 77% at 5 years, the graft survival (G.S.) was 81% at 1 year, 80% at 2 years and 68% at 5 years. The clinical results showed a fairly good correlation with the histocompatibility degree. In the A-B-match groups the 1, 2 resp. 5 years P.S. was 95, 96 resp. 89% and G.S. 90, 90 resp. 89%. In 43% of the patients rejection of variable degree developed. The rejection led to graft loss in 12%.
