|Resumo:||Transplant Proc. 2006 Jul-Aug;38(6):1890-4. Impact of hepatitis C virus on renal transplantation: association with poor survival. Pedroso S, Martins L, Fonseca I, Dias L, Henriques AC, Sarmento AM, Cabrita A. Nephrology and Transplant Departments, Hospital Geral de Santo António, Largo Professor Abel Salazar, 4050-011 Porto, Portugal. firstname.lastname@example.org Abstract Data concerning the effect of hepatitis C virus (HCV) infection on the long-term outcome of patient and allograft survival are conflicting. We performed a retrospective study including all renal transplant recipients who underwent the procedure at our center between July 1983 and December 2004. We compared HCV-positive (n = 155) versus HCV-negative (n = 1044) recipients for the prevalence of anti-HCV, patient/donor characteristics, and graft/patient survival. The prevalence of HCV-positive patients was 12%. The anti-HCV positive recipients displayed a longer time on dialysis (P < .001), more blood transfusions prior to transplant (P < .001), and a higher number of previous transplants (P < .001). There were no differences in the incidence of acute rejection between the two groups. Patient (P = .006) and graft survival (P = .012) were significantly lower in the HCV-positive than the HCV-negative group. Graft survival censored for patient death with a functioning kidney did not differ significantly between HCV-positive and HCV-negative recipients (P = .083). Death from infectious causes was significantly higher among the HCV-positive group (P = .014). We concluded that HCV infection had a significant detrimental impact on patient and renal allograft prognosis. Death from infectious causes was significantly more frequent among HCV-positive than the non-HCV population. PMID: 16908314 [PubMed - indexed for MEDLINE|
