|Abstract:||© 2018 Elsevier Inc. Background: Dual kidney transplants (DKTs) from expanded criteria donors (ECDs) have been performed in our hospital since 2014. We needed to review our clinical outcome and update criteria to selected ECDs for DKTs. Materials and Methods: Between January 2014 and December 2016, 4 DKTs and 269 deceased donor kidney transplants were performed. The outcome of DKTs was reviewed. The literature was reviewed for surgical technique and indication for DKT. Results: Four DKTs were performed between 2014 and 2016. One-year graft survival rate was 100%. One patient developed delayed graft function. No morbidity or mortality occurred. Conclusions: DKTs in our center were safe and had good outcome with optimized selected criteria. DKT can improve the rate of kidney transplant in a developing country.|
