Abstract

Urological complications after kidney transplantation is still now one of the main reasons of worsening operation results. Most surgeons pay a lot of attention to the urinary fistulae. At verifiable urinary fistulae the next tactics significantly depends on the presence of urinary stent.

Subject of the work: to study the effectiveness of implantation as for double J-stents at kidney transplantation for prophylaxis of urinary fistulae.

Materials and methods. The analyzed results of kidney transplantation among 66 patients from 2012 to 2016. There were 37 (56.1 %) men, the average age of patients was 33.4±12.4 years. All the patients on early after surgical period were done the monitoring of clinic-biological indexes, ultrasonic examination with scanning of renal allograft. As for the aim of the work all the patients were divided into two groups:

The main group included 35 (53 %) recipients with kidney allografts, everyone of them was set uretero-bladder anastomosis on the double J-stent during the period from 11.2013 to 06.2016. The average age of patients was 32.6±9.2 years, there were 17 (48.6 %) men, 18 women (51.4 %).

Controlling group involved 31 (47 %) patients. During the period from 01.2012 to 10.2013 at kidney transplantation urinary stents were not used among the patients. The average age of recipients was 34.3±15.3 years, there were 20 (64.5 %) men, 11 women (35.5 %).

Results. According to the analysis of our clinic material the implantation of J-stent at kidney transplantation for prophylaxis of urinary fistulae is reliably (p<0.05) effective. In our research there is no connection (p>0.05) with the infection of urinary tracks with  the presence of urinary stent.

Conclusions. Implantation of J-stent is effective and safe method of surgical prophylaxis of urinary fistulae and it can be routinely applied at kidney transplantation.
