Successful kidney transplantation from a deceased donor with multiple renal vessel injury due to harvesting

Mehmet T, Grkan D E, Doukan D, Abdussamed Y Mehmet K

The best treatment for chronic renal failure is kidney transplantation. Two of the most significant factors that affect the success of kidney transplantation are the vascular anatomy of the graft and the injury to these veins during harvesting. Arterial or venous injuries which might particularly occur during harvesting have significant effects on the success of the operation, and may lead to consequences as far as loss of graft. In this paper, we report a case where multiple renal injuries occurred during harvesting operation and where successful kidney transplantation was achieved through reconstruction.
