Abstract

In patients that received transplants of cadaver kidneys, prior transfusion improves the prognosis for graft survival. Patients receiving frozen-thawed red cells have better 1-year survival rates than patients given other forms of red cells. The effect of prior transfusions is minimal in patients that received transplants of kidneys from living related donors.
