Functional Status of Solitary Kidney After Nephrectomy in Living Donors of Related Kidney: Is All That Simple?

T.V. Marchenko, Yu.A. Morozov, L.G. Doletskaya


The paper presents data on changes in the function of solitary kidney after nephrectomy among living kidney donors. It was shown that in the early postoperative period, the glomerular filtration rate and creatinine clearance are greatly reduced, and in a month after surgery compensatory hyperfiltration develops in solitary kidney. At a later period there was a secondary deterioration of renal function, which is registered and in 12 months after nephrectomy.
