Arterial hypertension in children with hemolytic uremic syndrome after kidney transplantation
from Pediatric Transplantation
The development of arterial hypertension after KTX is a well-known complication. HUS is a systemic disease associated with arterial hypertension during long-term follow-up. Our goal was to report on the severity of arterial hypertension after KTX in patients with typical and atypical HUS. We analyzed the course of 197 patients with HUS, of which 22 (n = 10 with typical HUS; n = 12 with atypical HUS) developed ESRF and received KTX as renal replacement therapy.
