Purpose: To study the outcome of kidney transplantation in Sappasitthiprasong hospital

Material and methods: The data of 11 patients who underwent kidney transplantation in Sappasitthiprasong hospital from 2009 to 2011 was determined in terms of complications and viability of transplanted kidney.

Results: Ten of 11 patients were received living donor kidneys by laparoscopic procedure. The rest was from cadaveric donor. Five patients had complications, 4 patients had urinary tract infection, reoperation with wound dehiscence, perinephric collection and accidental DJ stent suture. One had lost kidney due to vascular complication. All the patients except the lost kidney one do not need analysis.

Conclusions: Although the kidney transplantation outcomes in our study still have high complications but most of the patients 10 out of 11 can maintain normal life without analysis.
