De Novo Techniques that Facilitate the Transplant of Short Right Allograft Kidney Vein as Left Allograft Kidney from Live Donor


The Kidney transplant is preferred option for treatment of chronic renal failure because with this modality treatment the life quality of patient is like normal also this modality is cost effective. The left allograft is choice for transplant because the short right renal vein predisposes this allograft for more complication. We introduce methods, which facilitate the anastomosing the short right allograft vein and probably reduce the vascular complication. Methods: In 20 right allograft kidneys after irrigation, with dissection between vein and artery near the hilum at the back table, placing the allograft kidney with inversion position and external iliac artery selection and first vein anastomosing and heparin injection transplantation is carried out and all the recipients are treated with three drugs (prednisolone, cyclosporine cellcept) and follow up is conducted. Results: In these cases, with at least six months follow up, flow of the urine and circulation of blood were normal. Conclusion: With regarding the results it may be concluded that with this technique it may reduces the vessel complication and facilitates the vessel anastomosing of the right allograft kidney.
