In kidney transplanation, some upper pole branches are too thin to be reconstructed. The impact of graft thin upper pole arterial branch ligation on adult living donor kidney transplantation remains to be investigated
Between January 2008 and May 2015, 604 adult living donor kidney transplants were performed. 462 kidney grafts with single arteries (Single artery group), 125 kidney grafts with reconstructed arteries (Reconstruction group), and 17 kidney grafts with ligated thin upper pole arterial branch (Ligation group) were enrolled. To evaluate the efficacy of thin upper pole ligation, Ligation group was compared with other groups. Characteristics of donors, recipients, and operation, recipient eGFR, and complications were investigated.
Warm ischemic time and total ischemic time were significantly longer in Reconstruction group
|Ligation group||Reconstruction group||Single artery group||Ligation vs. Reconstruction group||Ligation vs. Single artery group|
|Number||17||125||462||p value||p value|
|Gender (M/F)||5 /12||76 /49||285 / 177||0.02||0.01|
|Gender (M/F)||11 / 6||51 / 74||161 /301||0.07||0.02|
|Warm ischemic time (s)||140.0||171.9||133.7||0.09||0.51|
|Total ischemic time (m)||100.9||136.8||92.8||<0.01||0.38|
. Recipient eGFR and each complication in Ligation group were similar to other groups ,
|Ligation group||Reconstruction group||Single artery group|
|Urinary tract infection||0||5||10|
|Surgical site infection||0||1||5|
Graft thin upper pole arterial branch ligation can be a safe procedure.
