Abstract

This report reviews our experience with cadaver renal allografts in patients more than 50 years old. In this study, we observed a correlation between the morbidity and mortality seen during the first year after transplantation and the higher level of immunosuppression given during the early posttransplant period. Although associated diseases contributed to morbidity and mortality, the fact that 54% of the patients who died from septic complications never had a rejection episode may reflect an ability in the future to reduce the levels of immunosuppressive therapy or to use an alternative immunosuppressive drug that may make possible a reduction of the total steroid dosage.
