Background;Renal transplantation is the treatment of choice for individuals with end stage renal disease (ESRD).
Method; This is a retrospective review of eight live related renal transplantations recently performed at Garki Hospital, a public private partnership (PPP) facility in Abuja, Nigeria over 5days.
Result; There were 6 males and 2 females in both recipient and donor groups and all were adults. The mean age of the kidney recipients was 43.2(age range 19 – 61) and 27.9years( age range 23 – 50) for the donor group. The average hospital stay was 17 days (14 – 26) for the recipients and five days for the donors. All donor nephrectomies were done using the finger assisted technique.Complications in the recipients were reported as hematoma collection in two patients,a kidney stone causing obstruction in another patient. Pulmonary oedema was encountered in the intensive care unit in the immediate postoperative period in two patients.
Conclusion; Successful renal transplantation often improves the well-being of patients with ESRD. In a developing country with a gaping dearth of facilities for adequate dialysis, transplantation appears to offer the most standard living conditions for those afflicted with this disease. Graft survival was very good in all eight patients and comparable to reports in the developed countries thus showing no need to travel to other countries as the results are exactly the same.
