Results:18 of 22 kidney transplant recipients were included. One year survival were 61,11%. The Kaplan-Meier method revealed non-related donor (20% vs 76,92%; p=0.01), recipient’s age ≥30 years (40% vs 87.5%; p=0.04), diabetes mellitus (25% vs 76.92%; p=0.03), and hepatitis C infection (20% vs 76.92%; p=0.02) were associated with lower survival.
Conclusions:Non-related donor, recipient’s age ≥30 years at the time of transplantation, diabetes mellitus and hepatitis C infection are associated with lower 1-survival.
