Abstract

1. Long-term graft survival markedly improved after the introduction of CsA as the main immunosuppressant in living-donor kidney transplantation at our institution. 2. HLA-identical LRD kidney transplantation provided the best long-term graft survival rate, probably due to a decreased incidence of graft loss from rejection. 3. We could achieve good long-term graft survival in LURD kidney transplantation compared with that of HLA-haploidentical LRD kidney transplantation. 4. Because of the striking discrepancy between organ donation and the increasing demand for transplantation, distant relative donors and LURDs, including swap donors, should be considered as an alternative way to increase the number of available donors when accompanied by a careful evaluation process.
