|Abstract:||Transplant renal artery stenosis (TRAS) is one of the common vascular complications post kidney transplantation. A retrospective study of TRAS among transplant recipients at a single transplant center in Thailand was performed from February 1986 to December 2002. Among 750 cases, 16 cases (2.1%) of TRAS were identified. Twelve cases (3.3%) were from cadaveric donors and four cases (1%) were from living-related donors (p-value = 0.034). Most cases presented with progressive deterioration of kidney graft with or without refractory hypertension. Doppler ultrasonography was used for initial screening followed by renal angiography. Fifteen cases were treated by Percutaneous Transluminal Angioplasty (PTA) with a 73 per cent success rate. Five cases underwent surgical revascularization with an 80 per cent success rate. Two cases (13%) of successful PTA showed recurrent stenosis with 46 months follow-up which were successfully treated by repeated PTA with stents.|
