Abstract

The incidence of sexual impotence in 20 men who have received at least 2 kidney transplants was 65 per cent compared to 10 per cent after the first transplant. The impotence was transient (2 to 4 months) in both affected men after the first transplant but permanent (2 to 10 years) in 6 men after the second operation. We attribute this increased percentage of impotence to the second end-to-end arterial anastomosis that requires division of the internal iliac arteries. We suggest that the second transplant be placed end-to-side into the common iliac artery.
