Is Renal Living-Donor Transplantation Indicated in Adult Patients with Orthotopic Ileal Neobladder? Lessons Learned from a Clinical Case
Accepted 7 May 2009, Published online 19 May 2009, pages 788 - 791
Renal transplantation is the treatment of choice for patients with end-stage renal disease and it has already been described in the literature in patients with orthotopic neobladders, mostly in the paediatric population. We report the first case of a living-donor renal graft in an adult patient with a orthotopic neobladder that was performed after radical cystectomy for urinary tuberculosis and reflux nephropathy. This patient experienced urologic and metabolic complications since the early posttransplant period.
