Abstract

Aim of the study was to assess the differences in size and hemodynamics in the normal kidney and well-functioning renal graft by color doppler ultrasonography (CDU). Sixty healthy subjects, 75 well-functioning cadaver renal transplant recipients, 15 couples of living donors and related graft recipients were compared by CDU. Renal diameters, volume, renal blood flow (RBF) and renal resistance index (RI) were the variables studied. Cadaveric transplants, living donors and related recipients had a longer kidney (p<0.00001) and greater volume (p
