Background: End-stage renal failure patients benefit most from kidney transplantation. Due to big kidneys and organ compression, autosomal dominant polycystic kidney disease patients have high morbidity. Symptomatic polycystic kidney disease patients have many native nephrectomies timing options. The aim of study is to reduce surgery, hospitalization, and anesthetic exposure and assess postoperative morbidity and death.
Method: An analysis was conducted on data acquired retrospectively from 30 patients at a private international hospital in Zheen. An analysis of the results with respect to the following factors was conducted: surgical time, complications, hospital stay duration, perioperative morbidity and mortality, and transplant kidney status.
Results: Twenty patients diagnosed with autosomal dominant polycystic kidney disease underwent simultaneous bilateral native nephrectomy and renal transplantation (Group 1) between January 2014 and January 2019. Ten patients underwent pre-transplant nephrectomy (Group 2). There was no statistically significant variation observed in the duration of hospital stays or operating times. 100% of patients and grafts survived in both categories.
Conclusion: The duration of hospital stays and duration of operations for renal transplantation did not differ significantly between the two groups, according to the findings of our study. Furthermore, we provided evidence that the operation was executed without any or minimal postoperative complications, which resolved without incident.
