Kidney transplantation in patients with severe preoperative hypertension
from Clinical Transplantation
Severe systemic hypertension is a risk factor for perioperative cardiovascular complications; however its impact at the time of kidney transplantation is not well defined. A retrospective cohort study of adult kidney-only transplant recipients between 10/09-12/12 was performed to examine outcomes between patients with (n=111) and without (n=98) severe preoperative HTN defined as SBP greater than 180 or DBP greater than 110 mmHg.
