AbstractLiving related donors (LRD) have been the main source of donor kidneys in Hong Kong. In recent years, there has been an increase in the proportion of cadaveric (CAD) kidneys transplantation. This review examines the results of renal transplantation in. Queen Mary Hospital (QMH) in order to assess the continuing need for LRD kidney transplantation. The records of 159 of 165 transplant cases between 1983 and 1991 were analyzed. The mean age of recipients was 35.6 years (range 11 to 57), with a male predominance in the LED recipients (p = 0.03). The waiting time for the LRD recipients was significantly less than the CAD recipients (p < 0.001). There was no difference in the distribution of different primary renal diseases causing end stage renal failure between the LRD and CAD groups. The cumulative graft survival at five years was 82.5% and 65.8% for LRD and CAD respectively (p = 0.02), Graft function was also significantly better in LRD recipients (p < 0,01), Early surgical complications were more common after CAD transplantation (14% vs 29%, p = 0.02). While the transplant centres and the Hong Kong Government continue to promote cadaveric organ donation, the LRD transplant programme should be equally encouraged because of superior graft outcome.
