Abstract

1. Long-term graft survival has been markedly improved after the introduction of CsA microemulsion and FK-506 as our main immunosuppressants, and the use of triple maintenance immunosuppression including MMF in living-donor kidney transplantation (KTX) at Younsei University. 2. The risk factors affecting long-term graft survival in living-donor KTX were recipient and donor age, type of immunosuppression including regimen, presence of pretransplant diabetes or hepatitis B, and the development of acute rejection after KTX. 3. The long-term graft survival rate with living-unrelated donor KTX was comparable to that with HLA-haploidentical living-related donor KTX. 4. Because of the striking disparity between organ donation and the increasing demand for KTX, distant relatives, living unrelated donors (including swap donors) should be considered as an alternative approach to increasing the number of available donors when accompanied by a careful evaluation process. 5. We recommend the use of minimally invasive approaches to donor nephrectomy to increase the rate of living donor donation. 6. We recommend negative lymphocyte crossmatch conversion protocols for patients with a positive crossmatch against their potential living donor.
