41 respectively. The presumptive diagnosis was acute tubular necrosis (ATN), biopsy was withheld, and the kidney began to function one day after the last scan. 19 Acute rejection may affect up to 40 % of patients, peaking at one to three weeks following transplantation. Assuming it is promptly recognized, it is normally treated with high-dose steroids or antibody therapy. It is normally asymptomatic, but rarely may be accompanied by flu-like symptoms, pyrexia, and graft tenderness. It should be excluded in patients with deteriorating renal function, and the diagnosis is often difficult, especially in patients with nonfunctioning grafts.

The bladder should be routinely visualized when possible and should be echofree. If turbid echoes are present, this may indicate either infection or hemorrhage, depending on the clinical setting. Color Doppler Ultrasound Color Doppler imaging provides an instantaneous assessment of the intrarenal vasculature and a global impression of transplant perfusion, and also identifies the transplant artery, vein, and iliac vessels (Fig. 3). Such information is purely qualitative and spectral Doppler is required for quantification.

B The more vertical incision preferred by some other surgeons conventional and incorporated into surgical dogma that kidneys should always be placed on the contralateral side! After preparation of the donor kidney and choosing the side for the transplant, a curvilinear incision is made in the iliac fossa. The present author prefers an almost horizontal skin crease incision starting in the midline 2 cm above the pubic symphysis and extended laterally to a position 2 cm medial to the anterior iliac spine (Fig.
