Materials and Methods: Retrospective data records between January 2014 to December 2016, 3 cases of EBKT were performed in our hospital. The technique and outcome of EBKT were reviewed. The literature was also reviewed regarding to clinical outcome and indication for EBK. Results: 3 EBKTs were performed between 2014 to 2016. The 1 year graft survival rate was 100%. No surgical complication, delayed graft function, acute rejection episodes were found. There was neither morbidity nor mortality.
