Abstract

[automatically translated] Introduction: The compartment syndrome after kidney transplantation is an early complication that, in the absence of timely treatment, can have devastating effects to the loss of the graft. This syndrome occurs when the space of allocamento in the context of the retroperitoneum is less than the size of the kidney with consequent increase of pressure in this space that determines how the last event of the blood supply to the graft arrest and its following ischemia. In this abstract we describe the technique and report our experience using implants of gore-tex in the prevention and treatment of compartment syndrome. Materials and methods: We have undergone a kidney transplant female patient of 42 years of age receiving hemodialysis for about 5 years. In the second postoperative day persisting condition of anuria it was performed an ultrasound with doppler graft integration. The diagnostic test showed a slightly increased volume organ with an increase in resistance indices both arterial than venous. For this reason, the patient underwent surgery with placement of implants in gore-tex anchored to the large muscles of the abdomen belt. To control postoperative Doppler ultrasound was shown a normalization of the flow and the resistance indices and eighth postoperative day we witnessed the resumption of the excretory function. conclusions:
