Study: Robotic transplants safe for obese patients with kidney disease
from By Chelsea Adams
University of Illinois at Chicago research finds that robotic kidney transplants for obese patients result in survival outcomes comparable to those in nonobese patients. Published in the American Journal of Transplantation, the study highlights 10 years' worth of data from some 230 robotic-assisted kidney transplants in patients with obesity conducted at University of Illinois Health hospitals. The study reports one- and three-year patient survival rates of 98% and 95%, respectively, among kidney transplant patients with obesity.
