Abstract

Approximately one sixth of patients receiving renal transplants have a functioning kidney beyond 20 years. Chronic rejection is the predominant cause of late allograft loss. Malignancy, cardiovascular disease, hepatic failure, and infections are the major causes of late death. Early detection and control of the risk factors that contribute to patient death should favorably influence the long-term success of renal transplantation.
