Renal transplantation is now the preferred treatment for end-stage renal failure with a significant decrease in early graft loss due to acute rejection, a decline in long- term graft attrition from chronec immunologic injury, and a simultaneous reduction in morbiditdy, mortality, hospitalization, and cost.1,2 International registries and reports from individual centers have shown a growing interest in the review of long- term survivors of renal transplant.3 However, only very few studies have been published on long-term results, late complications, immunologic reactivities, and rehabilitation in kidney trannsplant recipients from Asia. In Asia, before 1967, renal allograft transpland was not a promising mode of treatment for end-stage renal diseases. The first successful kidney transplantation was performed by National Taiwan University Hospital (NTUH) on May 27, 1968.4 The purpose of this study is to review the results at a single institution with regard to patients who received successful kidney grafts that functioned for 15 to 23 years.#0419#
